Well. 1/72 is probably the closest GOOD scale you will get. That is the scale that most of the WWII games today use.

I know that you are knew, but could you please use puncuation and grammer in your statements. It took me like 5 minutes to get what you were saying in your post.

98% of Teenagers have tried smoking pot OR drinking. If you're one of the 2% that hasn't, copy and paste this into your sig.

Please take time to write out your posts in a clear and concise manner. It's hard to read and many people will simply skip over it, which means you won't get answers to your questions.

1/72 scale is the same as 25mm. Unfortunately, this is often a bit too small for GW related products, which are scaled at 28mm. You need to look for 1/65 scale products. Unfortunately, you're going to have a rough time finding anything to match that scale because there aren't a lot of modeling companies that make items to that scale. I believe there are one or two, but I can't remember the names. Just try googling 1/65 or 1/64 scale models.
