Default Tau Manta (Aeronautica Imperialis Base) Size

I'd like to know how big a Manta on an Aeronautica Imperialis Base scale is. Sorry if you consider this spam.

looks comparable to a tank, where as the forgeworld can hold multiple tanks!

Tank as in Hammerhead-sized tank or Tiger Shark-tank?

You know, I think some people consider getting these over the insanely expensive forgeworld productions. Its kind of cheesy to unload everything, but when in debate its not too far out of question to imagine a "quick" drop off. Then LIGHT SPEED!

Lol. I was actually wanting to buy it for that reason - I don't want a Manta, I want a Tiger Shark. But I was going to spend the extra money to get a more accurate size, so my friends can't complain. Do you reckon it could pass as a house rule? Or could I use an Epic Tiger Shark?

You could use an Epic Tiger Shark to represent a Tiger Shark more easily than you could use an Epic Manta to represent a Manta, I think. Because Tiger Sharks are proper fliers - hit on 6s etc, but the Manta is so huge it uses normal BS so... it needs to be huge.
