So i've built up a large collection of 1/87 tanks and vehicles.

hard to find true 1/87mm figures other than Preiser. Any ideas on "large 15mm" or true 18mm-19mm

True 20mm are just too big when next to a 1/87 whereas Peter Pig or PSC-15mm are too small.

any ideas? thanks

On thought might be to mont the figures on substantial (5mm) bases as a compromise?

That works for me.

Yes, that's always an option. I posted this query on the 20mm Board and the consensus there was that SHQ 20mm ran on the small side.

Any other suggestions?

Forged In Battle figs always look a bit bog to me. LIsted as 15mm but pushing 18mm IIRC.

Some of the Battlefront figures are pretty big, for example the winter Americans are huge for 15mm.

Irregular 20mm are small but a bit chunky alongside Preiser. Some older 20mm plastics are very small by today's standards…
