Although a good Idea Pete, now that the Build has been approved and the forum for it started, If anyone wants to join in they can just get stuck in by opening their build thread in the forum.

Although these Toon kits are not my cup of tea, I will be looking forward to seeing them- I was surprised by how many there are!

A small tip to all th those who are building Toon tanks.

Far be it for me to tell any of you how to build, but I would recommend that you thoroughly wash the tank tracks, on the last two toons thay were very oily and even the sprues had a slight oily feel .
Pete.

Hi Ian great job very nice done, do you think it would be possible to convert the bomb door to take a bouncing bomb and release mechanism into the bomb bay, I don't know who would be silly enough to try such a thing:smirk::smirk::smirk:.
Pete.

I’m sure the person you’ve got in mind could do just that sort of thing Pete.
