Now, that looks more like what St. Gloriana has in the anime. Good work.
Does the Churchill model have a 6-pounder gun? Or is that already the 6-pounder attached to it?

That particular Churchill model aka the Churchill Mk. IV NA75, actually has a 75mm M3 gun, the same weapon used on the M3 Lee and the early model M4 Shermans. Said Churchills were refitted with the gun as a field measure by taking the surplus M3 guns that the British were receiving from the US, taking the gun mantles from wrecked M4 Shermans, and then mating them to the Churchill's turret for improved firepower.

For reference, the QF 6-Pounder gun is a 57mm weapon.

True... but this one comes pre-painted and assembled! Given how many miniatures I'm behind on the Ooarai teams I'm optimizing.

Of particular interest is Kyuniska, the daughter of the Spartan king Argidamus II, who became a champion of these ancient Olympic sensha races (though as the owner of the horse, not as the rider), and in a single act increased the participation of females."

Whew! Finally completed the original StuG! The good news is that I don't think there's a single other model which will be as much work... though the kitbash of the Tiger (P) might be challenging.

It was Miho, not Maho, who was leading BFP when they lost to Pravda. And those were PzKpfw III with the L/60 gun around her flag Tiger H, one of which went sliding into the drink. Miho seems to have preferred to use the smallest tanks that could do the job and fight a battle of manuver, even when she had the choice of the some of the heaviest tanks allowed under the rules.
Maho is the eldest, but wonder if she was not the favorite daughter prior to that incident? Although I haven't started the "Little Army" manga that covers Miho's grade school years(!) yet which should confirm it. Because if its true that Miho prefers small tanks, that kind of fighting demands aggressiveness to pull off successfully, and that would seem to please her Mom.
Maho I think is just trying to avoid being embarrased like Pravda was, she is fighting to not lose, rather than fighting to win, and is resorting to overkill.

Something of interest, seeing how the cover to the issue actually appeared on the imageboards earlier.

Definitely one of the odder ways to get the series' tank specs published together with UC Mobile Weaponry. Also to get the girls dressed in oversized (and REVEALING) Feddie and Zeke uniforms like so:

Either that M4 is ridiculously huge, or the girls are ridiculously small.

I think they're a little bit more out of uniform than in uniform there.

(Specifically Miho and Noriko in the link's pictures, not the inline image.)
