    Maybe 1/32 scale would be better, but there's this:

    I've only ever seen a few H-pattern tanks outside of Transformers, and they're usually hard to come by.
    A good solution would be to either get the parts to make your own from HLJ, or maybe even get the parts from Warhammer 40K tanks.

    Try looking for 1:35 scale. That is the "typical" scale for military armor. 1:35 will be a pretty good fit for Warpath figure, but as stated there aren't many (if any) H-tanks in the real world. Maybe a HALO Scorpion tank might be useful for parts.

    A 1/35 scale tank would be roughly the size of an alternator Viper mold. I know this cause I re-shelled one.
