I figured I'd post this here because... what the hell. The final version is in the third post (with a much better turret and redesigned front end).

Cool lego tank.

Thank you!

So, I am considering building it. Question is, should I go with the desert tan camo, or a white 'Battle of the Bulge' camo? Chaffees were only utilized in Europe in WW2, so the white would be more accurate:

You're welcome! Hmm, I like the white as it looks more natural.

I think the contrast from the white it too sharp. But, everyone is gonna have their own opinion on the aesthetics lol

Another possibility is dark green, oddly enough (I didn't include this earlier because I thought the parts wouldn't exist... but aside from the barrel, all those dark green pieces apparently are available. 

Ugh, I hate making decisions like this -_-.

I think I am going to go with white. Even though it's a little United Nations-ish for me, it also reminds me a lot of Command & Conquer: Red Alert (where a lot of people believe that the light tank was intended to represent a Chaffee). I usually played either red, blue, mustard or white colors in the multiplayer. I know that's stupid reasoning, but it's what I've got.

I'll post again in a few weeks when the part arrive and it's built.

By they way, here is what it looks like in Red (because who didn't love Red tanks in that game?):

'Tanks' for sharing this @Battlecruiser_NewZealand! They're strangely adorable when they're made of lego. Definitely like the white one, but if all else fails you could buy multiple colors and mix n match for wacky camo haha

Are the tracks Lego links? Or some kind of rubber band molded rubber?
