Looks nice, but shouldn't the door be round?

Rather than a kit bashed T34, would an Emhar 1/72 A7V be a better choice?

Thanks for the nice words guys
I figured that with the passage of time from Lord of the Rings to the early 1900's styles and fashions would have changed so decided on regular doors and windows rather than round (also its easier to do  ;))
I'm probably only going to do a Hobbit tank,thinking of using a dragon for the Goblin heavy support,haven't made a final decision on that yet
The Hobbits will have a wizard and the Goblins an ogre as well

Well things are progressing slowly,I now have the Hobbit soldiers painted along with a wizard to help them out but I'm afraid I can't post a picture as I am kind of doing a "two birds,one stone" thing and have entered them as my Round 7 team for the LPL  ::)

Will make a start on the Goblin forces this weekend (have combined a Westwind British armoured suit mini with a Dystopian Legions Prussian teutonic knight to add a large character to the little fellas team instead of the planned ogre) and hopefully have them ready for my Round 8 entry

Looking forward to seeing these, I keep imagining a hobbit hole pillbox as a piece of scenery...
