Thinking about getting into this scale for some North Africa scenarios.

Anyone have any comments regarding the quality of each brand over the other?

Honestly, from what I can see online they both look similar in quality.

Simple answer is to buy a couple from each of the manufacturers.

Your own eyes will answer the question for you.

Possibly but not sure it's worth the shipping costs for 1 tank from each place, but you aren't wrong :)

I find Pithead vehicles run a little larger than Pendraken. Both are easy builds and well detailed, I'd just stick to one manufacturer for each vehicle. I do prefer Pendraken infantry though.

Leon…I will email you. That offer is beyond generous and greatly appreciated.

Pendraken vehicles have better detail than Pithead but are on the small side of 10/12mm-1/144.

Actually…that's a plus for me then if Pendraken are smaller than Pithead!!

Thank you all for the info

I have a collection of Skytrex 1:200 for Tunisia I've been thinking of selling off. The quality of the range is variable but generally paint up well – if you let me have your email I could send some photos if you're interested?
