No luck, been looking all over. This unit is a must to have. Along with the LAV and the Stryker. Would have rather had these before the tanks.

corgi do a 1/64 scale one wich is spot on for 28mm to be honest.

Too bad BF:EVO is more like 30mm though ;)

That said, 1/48 isn't spot on either. 1:60 - 1:55 would be pretty much perfect, but there's not much around in that scale. Depends on whether you prefer your vehicles "a bit too small" or "a bit too large" really.

I would not use a 1/48 kit with Bf evo, not even with the more heroically posed (bigger) TAG-minis, but then again i'm a scalefascist :lol:

I guess I could have worded my post with a bit more nuance, my apologies, but I respectfully disagree based on this.

Of course, this has been discussed to death and I'm not looking for another scale war :D What matters is what you (the player in general, not anyone specific) think looks best with your figs. I would add that, yes, BF:EVO vehicles are 1/65th in scale, and if you're using third party models alongside them, it's probably best to go for 1/65th (or close) for those as well, so they will scale properly together.

In my opinion it would probably help to base the vehicles, in order to prop them up to the same ground height as the infantry.

Interestingly, though... my PLA figures could actually fit in the 1/48 Humvee and Little bird I have, but I don't think these figures could get their heads though the portholes of either the Mongoose Type 99 I have nor the 1/64 M1A1 (Corgi) or 1/72 Leopard 2 (Dragon Armor).

the test is take the base of the mini if hes a tad taller than the hwwmv the hwwmv is the scale. 1:48 is way to big. also have you ever squeezed in some russian tanks ? it aint for the faint hearted my freind described it as potholeing.

The M1 is actually fairly "roomy" for a tank. Getting in and out of the hatches isn't bad. But no tank is fun after cooking in it for 12-18 hrs

Sadly I have to agree - the Corgis look to be just right - the Warrior is about the same size as the bradley and the BF Evo Warrior is about the same size as the Bradley

I own several Kitech Bradleys and LAVs & BTRs & they are honking TOO HUGE for BF Evo :( This makes me sad

While the Kitech tanks - M1 - Leopard 2 - T-80/T-90 are much bigger than the Mongoose tanks - they still border on useable

dsfrankevo, I stopped by Wexford Saturday and asked for you but they said you had not been in that day. Hope to catch ya next time. Had my wife with me couldn't stay very long anyway. Will catch ya another time.

Evil, nice looking Lavs. Think they look fine. The military takes all sizes of folks.
