Every second eBay listing has them as either 1/72 or 1/43 scale. It's a 50/50 split. So what scale are they? I can't seem to find a reference source.

It is 1/72, my guess is that the Yesteryear range because of their size most people simply guess and assume they are all 1/43 which is not the case, the whole Yesteryear range had a wide variety of scales

Thanks mate. I think that will allow me to sneak one into a World War Two British homefront diorama. :wink:
