Step 1. As ever, spray white undercoat. (at this point the model is just resting on the textured based - not fixed)
As I owned the Forged in Battle Panther G I thought it might be useful to do a quick comparison.
|Top View: PSC on the left, FiB on the right|
|Front View: PSC on the left, FiB on the right|
|Rear View: PSC on the left, FiB on the right|
|Side View: PSC on the left, FiB on the right|
Well here's what I found;-
Manufacturer Length (mm) Width (mm) Height (mm)
PSC 64.0* 34.5 30.0
FiB 63.5 29.0 26.5
*I measured to the back of the hull and ignored the exhausts, Wiki's measurements may include them.
Now using Wikipedia's dimensions I worked out what a 1/100th model should measure and also what a truer 15mm (1/120th) model should measure.
Scale Length (mm) Width (mm) Height (mm)
1/100th 68.7* 34.2 29.9
1/120th 57.3 28.5 24.9
This leaves things looking like the PSC model is closer to 1/100th scale and the FiB closer to 1/120th (15mm) scale.
So I guess neither is incorrect - but you can't mix the two. Maybe I should have bought a box full after all!
