Getting back into modeling after 15 years or so, but going for 1/35th scale zombie/apocalypse type dioramas. Until recently, ALL the figures in my stash were Tamiya. Bought Master Boxes French Resistance because the people are civilians and there's a woman included.
But when I assembled her, something was wrong....she was too tall. Thought it was my imagination, but it really showed when I compared her to a completed Tamiya figure.
Compared to him, she looks about 7' tall.
Checked a Youtube review on the kit and mentioned this to the poster who replied that all(?!) Tamiya figures are too short for true 1/35th scale. You can use them with 1/35th scale kits, but can't mix them with other manufacturers figures because of the size difference.
Took my 1/35th scale ruler and measured 3 figures: Master Boxes woman, Tamiya's G.I. and what I think is an Italeri German. The woman's about the same height as the Italeri figure, but believe the fault is mine in not having her legs all the way up her dress.
Has anyone ever checked Tamiya's figures with a scale ruler and are they all going to be to short to use as adults? But if they're all too short, I can use them as teenagers. Just want to know before I buy any.
