Yes some people are taller than others but a Jap rifle isnt half an inch bigger between each guy. Nor is a helmet.
People do vary in size but equipment does not. And again, some of the available figures are just huge. I have the Verlinden 1/35 dead Japanese and if they were standing upright they would be 7 feet tall and their equipment is twice as big as Tamiya's. Thats just unrealistic IMHO.
Tamiya's Japanese figures are pretty realistic in scale. They are not 6' aryans. Their height and build are pretty slim. But they don't mix well with the 1/30 size Verlinden figures visually and for the equipment issues mentioned above.
