I have a bunch (60+) of the plastic tanks that were sold a few years ago as 1/144th scale. I want to get additional tanks(Soviet, British, Italian, etc) that will match them in size. What companies models would be compatible size-wise?

TIA,
Dave

HI Dave

These were the small boxed tanks from walmart? If so 10-12mm would work.

Bill,

Yes, those are the ones.

They're slightly smaller than true, 1/144th scale.

More like 1/160th scale.

You can still find some on eBay, but don't know about pricing on those now.

Note – some stuff billed as 10mm is really more like 12mm, or somewhere in between.

Not sure which minis would work best with them, but if I had to guess, I'd check out the Pendraken range, which is slightly smaller than MiniFigs. Buy a few to test out.

If possible, avoid mixing units with products from different manufacturers, but different vehicles from them should be fine.

Assuming they are Ww2 Butlers Printed models does 12mm stuff.
Minifigs to name but a few.
