What 1-48 means and how big are the miniatures? 1:48 is an exact scale, it means that the scaled models are 48 times smaller than the actual size of the real object. It is sometimes referred to as quarter scale because a quarter inch represents one foot and is equivalent to the model trains O scale in USA (note that in the UK O Scale is more commonly 1/43.5 or 7mm to the foot and in the rest of Europe O Scale is 1:45 !). Tamiya and other scale model makers offer a wide selection of military vehicle models and figures in this scale and there is a growing number of ready to play die cast models available from many manufacturers. An average standing man in 1:48 scale is approximately 36mm tall, 1-48TACTIC  figures are therefore fairly close in size to the commonly called 32mm (when measured to the eyes) or "heroic scale" wargame figures, but are more realistically proportioned.
