Would a CTT/Juggernaut be about 8 in. in the 3 3/4 scale.
I'm going to make this my summer project!
And don't try and stop me because after I get the height I 'm done with the Templates.
My guess is it will be able to hold around 15 clone troopers!

The juggernaut is huge, a lot bigger than 8" in scale. Take a look at the overhead shot of Kashyyyk and you'll see that they're bigger than the AT-PTs.

I knew this was going to happen so I've decided to lower it to about 1/3-1/2 of the original sizes.Still it will look amazing.Then I think I'll try a SPHA-Tafter that.

Cool, I was going to do the same thing, which of the 3 models will you try , A4, A5, or A6? the A6 can hold up to 300 troopers uses 12 pilots and 6 gunners and its Length is 49.4 meters and its height is 30. 4 meters the A5 can hold 50 troopers uses 2 pilots and 6 gunners its length is 21.8m and height 15m, the A4 can hold 20 troopers uses 2 pilots and 6 gunners its length is 20 m and its height 12 m, if you want a juggernaut and in scale use the A4

I don't know.
Do you have pics?
I'll have to do research on the differences.

practically the differences between them is the size, I have no images for the A4 since its an old republic vehicle, they are all on wookiepedia,and in off line sources the A6 comes in the ROTS cross sections, the A5 in essential guide to vehicles and vessels

Size reference for a Empire-era model:



You can see the trooper standing next to the wheel.

Or a Clone Wars era model:

A hobby store that carries RC car parts, or better yet, a cheap large truck or car from walmart or TRU. They each have a cheap line of toys for young kids.

Also LEGO technic sets would have sufficiently larger tires to help you make something in the "monster truck" scale.

I'm looking forward to seeing this custom Turbo Tank. That's a cool avatar you have there, CloneWars101.

That thing would be HUGE!! At least three feet long and about two feet high, But that is just an estimation, could be bigger. How about trying lawn mower wheels. Foxtrot Delta
