Hello everyone,

Imagine that:

Does the MiniFigs 25mm NFA 4 British 9lb Field Gun Reference have a longer carriage than the Old Glory Reference BXE-2 British 9lb Field Gun?

The NFA 4 British 9lb Field Gun reference from MiniFigs 25mm has a bigger and longer barrel than the BXE-2 British 9lb Field Gun reference from Old Glory?

But that the BXE-2 British 9lb Field Gun reference from Old Glory has wheels only slightly larger than those of the NFA 4 British 9lb Field Gun reference from MiniFigs 25mm?

Imagine that:

The reference NFA 11 British 6lb Field Gun from MiniFigs 25mm has a slightly shorter carriage than the reference BXE-1 British 6lb Field Gun from Old Glory?

The NFA 11 British 6lb Field Gun reference from MiniFigs 25mm has a much bigger but much shorter barrel than the BXE-1 British 9lb Field Gun reference from Old Glory?

But that the BXE-1 British 6 lb Field Gun reference from Old Glory has wheels only slightly larger than those of the NFA 11 British 6 lb Field Gun reference from MiniFigs 25mm?

Me who thought that my dear 25mm MiniFigs were incompatible with the more recent "25 mm" like those of Old Glory?

Me who thought that my dear 25mm MiniFigs were the smallest "25mm" figurines?

Hello everyone,
So no one has ever made this kind of comparison.
Thank you,
Pascal

No one likes 25mm MiniFigs & 28mm Old Glory?

Interesting imagining, but factual comparisons using photos with side by side images would be much better. In color, no B&W. Also, mic the equipment and provide the data. I have no 25mm Minifigs. Most of my OG 25mm are long gone (OG didn't make 28mm). Most of my 25/28mm figs are S&S, Front Rank, Foundry, Perry, and et cetera. No Minifigs. Of course most everything is a bit more challenging to find these days with supply line difficulties. Mostly I use what I can find. I'm not wedded to any particular line of figures. Needs must as the Devil drives. Thank you for the comparisons.

@ DJCoaltrain :

This is not imagination and indeed it is interesting to know!

But factual comparisons using photos with side-by-side images wouldn't have been better for me, because I was able to do first-hand comparisons, week after week, with models owned by buddies, which was better than photos (you could do the same if you have friends with 25mm MiniFigs).

Anyway, my computer is too old to accept photos from my phone, which isn't very young either, so the question was solved…

What happened to me?

It's that I realized that at MiniFigs 25mm, the artillery references are reduced to their minimum portion…

So I had to find myself a substitute for the missing artillery pieces at 25mm MiniFigs.

I have more and more 25mm Minifigs which are ultimately my favorite miniatures and I have only just noticed it!

Since the mid-80s, I had abandoned 25mm MiniFigs to follow the trend of buying more and more recent miniatures, but that's it.

Now I resell all my newer miniatures that are from the ranges that exist at 25mm MiniFigs and when there is no substitute in 25mm MiniFigs, I keep them.
