1:72 or 1:76 Scale

T-34 tanks in 1:72 and 1:76 scale

These 1:76 and 1:72 scale T-34/85 tanks are obviously incompatible with each other, despite the fact that the smaller of the two vehicles is only 5 percent shorter, narrower, and lower. As a result, the 1:76 scale model has 16 percent less volume than the outwardly similer 1:72 scale tank. The scale difference of 1:72 and 1:76 scale figures can be acceptable, because humans are shorter or taller by nature, but the weapons and equipment they carry should be identical in size.
