How well do Plastic Soldier Company's 15mm plastic tanks fit with those from Battlefront?

Just fine. I don't have the exact same model of each but the BF Crocs fit in just fine with my PSC Shermans and Cromwells.

PSC Shermans look a bit smaller than BF's. I wouldn't mix them in the same platoon, but they are close enough to use in the same army.

I haven't seen the new BF plastics. All of their resin kits that I have seen side by side with PSC or Zvezda, BF stands noticeably taller. They made the road wheels and drive wheels overlarge diameter, and their treads are extra thick.

The metal piece here is from a BF BT-42, the plastic from Zvezda BT-5 (same chassis & running gear)

I've also just got the PSC universal carrier box – they are noticeably smaller than the Old Glory versions (but still really nice)

Thanks for all the replies so far. Has anyone been able to compare PSC with BF's newer plastic models?

Hey.

Comparing Panzer III model "J" in 15mm. Left is Flames Of War, middle is Plastic Soldier Company and the right is from Forged In Battle.
