Default How long is a Leman Russ?

literally... I want to know how long... In mm a leman russ is.

Reason being, I can't get to my local store for a while to check anyone elses Russ out.

I want to know this because I am undertaking a conversion for my Krieg Regiment...

(Also, if possible, what's the diameter of the turret "hole" in the top of the tank... in mm if you can! Thanks!)

The turret hole thingy is 20 mm across. And I never thought I'd get a chance to reuse this picture.



(The picture was for some guy over on The Waaagh! but seems perfectly applicable here, even if it does have a few extra measurements. )

Best of luck,

+1 Karma to Grandpa Ducky for having such a strange picture saved on his computer!

GD, is that 5cm the actual width or is that from the inside of each track to the other as it appears to be?

Yes, it will be. I can picture the Russ in my head, and that's about right.

Just a quick question, would 1/35th scale match up you reckon?

I'm buying a Panzer IV for the chassis... (Don't worry it'll be 50% GW parts so it'll be legal...)
