Just musing over the current offerings available, seems A7Vs and MkIVs are available from Brigade Games, Great War Miniatures and Old Glory, how do these compare size and detail wise. I'm guessing OG would be smallest and not as detailed? so is it a two horse race.

Additionally i have a "28mm" resin Whippet which seems on the larger 28mm size but have no idea of its origins, any pointers?

The larger Whippet is from Old Glory, Neil. It is substantially larger than Brigade's which was mastered by Tony Ashcroft and I cast along with the Mk.IV's and V's and the new St.Chammond. Brigade's tanks match up well with Great War's.

Cheers,

Jeff

The Old Glory A7Vs and MkIV's were done by a gentleman that made models for the Smithsonian. They are nicely detailed.

The Brigade tanks and vehicles are 1/56th scale, as are those from Company B. Old Glory's vary -- their Austin Putilov is in the 1/52 range, their FT-17 is 1/60 (considerably smaller compared to Brigade's), their A7V is 1/52, and their Lanchester is 1/48. Sloppy Jalopy's Austin-Putilov is 1/48 (as stated on their website).

So overall, if you want 1/56, stay with Brigade and Company B. If you want larger (except for the FT-17), go with Old Glory.

Thanks guys that makes it easier, just the two to deliberate over and the Brigade Games have the greater range, but then vs $ ….. decisions decisions.

nice to know where my Whippet came from, destined for RCW colours that one.

You could build your own :)

We just did one for my son's school project. Admittedly a little off scale, but we built it in a day from some pictures.
