Dear all
This turned up today, thought it might interest you a little.
It looks better quality than the earlier tanks, but a few huge gaps!.

Hope your all very well!

Have you measured it? Is it real 1/16 or closer to 1/15?

I don't care if the scale is exactly 1/16.
I am happy that this model now exists.

Looks like a good base. It will be interesting to see the finished model with all the parts installed to compare with the OKMO DKLM M2A3.

I appears the height is off as it sits tall as compared to the Abrams in the comparison between the models and the actual machines.

If someone can assemble their TONGDE Bradley and post strait pictures of it at square angles from a specific distance, i could take the same shots of the DKLM Bradley and we could transpose the two sets to compare the models.

According to Wikipedia, the M2A2 should have the following dimensions:
Length over all 6550mm
Width over all 3280mm
Length measured over all 445mm => 6550/445 = 14,72 scale
Width measured over all 222mm => 3280/222 = 14,77 scale

TongDE posted it was intentionally built larger than 1/16 scale so that they could fit their standard gearboxes in it. Some have reported it as large as 1/14.5.
