Kubelwagen: 1/48 or 28 mm?

The Kubelwagen is 1:48 Tamiya (I think or maybe Froc). The infantry are Warlord Bolt Action 28 mm, nominally 1:56.

So the infantry are too small for the car?

Um, I don't think so.

Scale and size are two different ways of measuring things.


  1. In a word John no they look fine to me. Okay the car is a little on the large size but they are more than passable and would say that they are the same scale if I didnt know better

  2. When I played Rules of Engagement, I freely mixed 28mm miniatures with Corgi diecast tanks, as did other players. To be honest, bar one person, everyone else did the same. Ditto 1/48th kits. They looked fine on the table together, which is what matters really IMHO.

  3. I've got to say that I'm not overly worried about such things, they look good together and I would have thought would look great on the table. This from a man who has far too many plastic dinosaurs lurking around the periphery of his gaming table!
