Mega Scale Comparison Results !!! (Part 1 of 3)

I have undertaken an exercise on saturday to dig out all the various forms of Panther i have from Many manufacturers do that people can see the comparison between the different scales.

It is also interesting to seem which manufactures produce items close to the scale they say they do!

The first report is a straight forward lineup of all the items from different views.

The line-up covers the big boys such as WTM and Dragon, some new companies like "millenium" toys" , but goes on to includes a number of smaller UK garage style producers!

note, this is a discussion about which item is better than another. That argumentis going to be slightly subjective and dependant on your purpose behind the items.... i.e war gaming or collecting?

Well, strange.. the Wtm panther is bigger than Millenium and Dragon .. did you checked the size and scale?

I think the WTM and Dragon still stand out with best details. The WTM should be similar to the Dragon one in size but it has longer fenders as it's a Ausf A/D instead of Ausf G of Dragon. Ausf A/D normally has longer fenders.

It is an optical illusion!

WTM & Dragon are the same overall size, they just have different proportions that give the appearance of being different sizes!!!

I have measured the old WTM panther and the Dragon panther and they are the same length, height and width, but the ratio within those dimentions is different.

madaxeman... no problems, i have previously noted the comparisons and pictures on your site and have found them useful.

Feel free to reuse them if you wish.
