Everyone has reported receiving their vouchers.  Looks like everything is wrapped up except the sculpting of the mini and spending of the vouchers.  Both are out of my hands.  Thanks all for your prompt communications.  It was a pleasure.

Ortho, I think the 11mm wide option looks closer to the original art.  Any comments?

While I'm not part of the founding, I agree with the 11 mmm option, it looks better.  I have a question regarding the back area, in the picture it seems that it becomes wide and that the grill panel is angled in a 60ยบ from the main body line and the back is as wide as the cushion. Is this correct or a perspective mishap?

I prefer the 11mm option, too.

Is there any way of fitting a 2nd (rotary) MG into the turret, as per stats? The second one may be obscured by the way the turret is oriented in the illustration.

Looking great, Behrle!

I also think that 11mm would look better.

However I am a bit concerned about the air-intakes on the sides of the center body, I see them on the original and the side perspective, but they are missing on the top view.

Orthos are generally used in the QCC process foe just getting the general shape and size of the mini established. The aren't meant to be detail complete but rather provide a guide to be used when scaling and sizing the mini. Have no fear, B-3 is excellent at getting all the details.

I think the 11mm looks better as well; not a fan of equally square vehicles myself.

Could we do a dual MG turret though as suggested above? Not sure that would show up that well at this size...but could it work?

Dual gun barrels in the turret no problem.

Ortho, I think the 9mm wide one works best with the proportions of the original art.

I agree 9mm is the best view.

Agree with 9 mm, though at that width, the tracks should probably be narrower. Also, the snout could probably be lower-slung, and vertically thinner. The angle of its top glacis should correspondingly probably be more severe and as a result, the whole body of the vehicle somewhat lower.

That said, the ortho is looking fantastic and this is exactly why I pledged my contribution. {>{>

Just chiming in.

I agree w/ 11MM & 9MM options that most suggested.

Also agreed w/ 2nd MG for the Hover, it appears your looking at the turret in profile/at angle & so you only see the 1 MG in 3026.
  At least that is how I'd always figured it.

Finally, I 2nd the suggestion that these be 4 to a pack.
They are smaller & should easily fit & it just makes sense to have a "Platoon" of infantry sized package.

I'm torn between the 10mm and 9mm versions mainly because at that size the difference will hardly be noticeable.  Assuming minimal shrinkage through the master to production mold process, either is fine for me.

Shrinkage is 1-dimensional, and as such, this thing will be losing height, not width.  Keep that in mind.
