Not sure how many players out there have been picking up the Can-do/Dragon 1/144 scale models, but I've built up a nice collection of their German pieces. I also have quite a few Russian pieces as well.However, just today I picked up some of the New Millennium Toys pieces. They currently make a Tiger I, Tiger II, Panzer IV-H, Panther, Sherman, and Hellcat.Since the NMT models are being sold as 1/144 as well as the Dragon/Can-Do models, I thought I'd post my opinion on a comparison.The NMT King Tiger is a disappointment when compared to Can-Do. The NMT is significantly smaller. The same is true of the Tiger I. Makes you wonder which manufacturer really is 1/144 scale.The NMT Panther is just a tinsy bit smaller but obviously less detailed. But for two bucks, who's gonna complain?The NMT Panzer IV, unlike the others above, is actually larger.Can-Do has made some Sherman pieces but their rather difficult to locate and I don't have any of those. So I can't compare them. But I can say they look rather small. Same is true of the Hellcat.Oh well, that's my two cents. Be nice to hear what other people think of the various 1/144 scale pieces.
