Hello all,
All my models are currently 1/50 scale. I might have a line on some 1/48 scale models. For similar types, say bulldozers, would I be able to notice any difference when displaying them near each other? Thanks for your time friends.

There is a slight difference for they are slightly larger scale. But most of the CCM models are pretty nice if those are the 1:48th ones you are talking about. You will see a difference visually though.

Good day, and an excellent question. In practice the 1/48 models will be 4% larger than their 1/50 scale counterparts. So yes there is a slight difference, but it is very subtle. Your small figures will look quite normal beside both scales and they can integrate well together in dioramas so I wouldn’t worry about mixing 1/48 into your collection. Hope that helps and pls let me know if you have any additional questions.
