Wonderfull.  I have the urge to build one of these.

But from where will you get all the girls?  There's a baker's dozen of 'em ...

Well, you don't want to go there --- but if you do ---  a google search for Japanese tank girl figurines might give you an idea ---  ;)

And pink, I imagine?  Or something in the realm of the PRDV/Fat Hamster schemes?

Yes, the Girl side of Girls und Panzer modelling is not cheap.  I am ever hopeful of finding vaguely in scale non specific anime girl figurines (with their clothes on) at a more acceptable price.
If I built one in 1/72 (or 1/76) I could use model railway schoolgirl figures.  There must be some of them available.

But would they be 1/72 ish ? If there are any I would guess at someone like Preisser, but I've no idea what the scale would be.

Didn't Airfix once upon a time do some OO/HO Civilian figures which included schoolkids ? I'm going back to the 60's.

Of course they wouldn't fit the Anime "aesthetic" of long legs, short skirts, and big heads.

What is it with the big heads anyway? I get the first two of course, but.....?

Not to mention the sailor suits too.  :-\

I'm sure that someone here could explain, but there would have to be a major distribution of blood pressure medication first!

That's quite an ensemble of different parts, I turned on the English  ;), but it certainly works. :thumbsup:

Although I'm not sure a poor Pz II running gear etc would support a Char B1 turret ?
