1/76 Airfix tanks as VSF Landship - part1

I was in Hobbyco and bought 1/76 Airfix Mark 1 Male tank. Back home I've decided to use it for my 15mm VSF. I've half assembled it and made a size comparison photos with true 15mm minis (with base diameter of 15mm
I choosed: Irregular Miniatures Russian Infantry
Russian Oficer
British Bluejacket
Battleline Miniatures (NZ) Jakobite Rebellion Bagpiper (not quite 15mm)

Here are real Mark1 tank measurements:
Length 32 ft 6 in (9.94 m) with tail
Width 13 ft 9 in (4.33 m) [male]
Height 8 ft 0.5 in (2.44 m)

1/76 model measurements:
Length 10mm (WITHOUT wheels)
Height 2.8 cm


  1. Who made that bluejacket? I have some like him that I bought at a flea market.

    1. Bluejackets are from Irregular Miniatures Colonial range
