Thanks for the info. I have just started working on a couple of figures from the Tamiya German infantry set and they are in general smaller than others. I have used GasoLine, Tarmac, SMA, Hecker Goros, Elan, Dartmore, Preiser, Jaguar, DML, as well as others. There are some brands you mentioned that I haven't seen, and I know that there are some others ones out there too. One of the nicest sets I have used of late is Rest Models. And so far I am impressed with Tamiya.
