    Hi Chris. My understanding is that 75mm figures are roughly 1/24 in scale.

    Hi Chris,

    regarding scale:

    Well, if you took an 'average' guy who is 5 feet 10 inches tall, that would be 70 inches tall. Now divide: 70/24 = 2.916 inches tall. So, a "1/24 scale" man would be 2.916 incehs tall. Since there are 2.54 cm (25.4mm) in one inch, multiply 2.916 x 25.4 works out to be 74mm. So 74mm +/- would be 1/24 - call it 75mm =).

    regards,
    Paul

    Hi
    As the sculptor of the DAK pz2 crew, I can say that 75mm is 1/24th. The Tasca kit is superb, I had the very first kit in the uk to work off to sculpt these for Tristar.
    The link supplied above shows me the first images I have seen of these figures painted.
