Is "G" Scale close to 1/35th?

Is "G" scale (railroad scale) close to 1/35th scale.
I think it is 1/32nd, but am not sure.

I think I found a building I can use in a diorama.

It's a Waiting Station, - 1/3 a shack, and 2/3rds an open front enclosure. Looks like corrugated metal. Measures 13 1/8" x 5 5/16" x 5 5/16".

Is it close to 1/35th, or will it look odd?

Would the Germans have used anything like this (in Tunisia) for a headquarters?

Do you know what Railroad scale would be (or at least come close to) 1/35th scale.

There are a lot of buildings, structures, bridges, etc... that are avialable that would look great in dios.

Hi James
The only railroad scale that comes close to 1/35th is no.1 scale (1/32nd), but be carefull, some items in this scale vary from 1/29th to 1/32nd.
