Couldn't find any French aircraft, but I reckon a Manhattan Defense Zone model in 1:350th scale could be outfitted with a Squadron or two of USS Akron/Macon leftovers.

WoT Mod.  Not the Action X turret with 20-pounder that I would have preferred, and the Chieftain turret's low gun placement as well as its turret ring are likely problematic, but oh well, beggar can't be choosy......

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

FV 201 (A45) with 20-pounder would essentially be a FV 221 Caernarvon Mark II:

We don't seem to have a MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE category.

Maybe we need one.

Stills from the artists.

The turret can't train left as it will bump into the stupid MG thing on the hull. It probably can't rotate too far right, either as it appears the searchlight housing will also run into the MG thing.
