Same as my main gripe with 20mm vehicles. Way too fragile for wargaming.

Also pretty big compared to 28mm (156th- 1/60th scale figures)
That said i'll happily use 1/48th scale aircaft for a 28mm battle simply because there's no other scale available.

1/56th scale aircraft are far and few between ;-)

POLL DESCRIPTION

Static Tyrant Inactive Member observes...

I've been working on some plastic 1:48 model figures (by Tamiya not intended for wargaming but they'll do nicely, thank you!).

I couldn't help but recall reading about how it is "such a pity" that some manufacturers choose to make 1:48 models as they are "completely incompatible" with 28mm models.

I've got the figures sitting in front of me and can obviously form my own views about that statement.

But curiosity has gotten the better of me, so I really have to ask: what (if anything) is it that you see as the problem with 1:48 figures why don't they match well with 28mm too big? too small? etc.

(Poll options proposed in this discussion.)
