The Emhar Mk. IV tank is slightly longer than a Land Raider, but not as wide.
And I think that the Malcador is significantly larger than a Land Raider, not sure (FW only has a compare picture with a leman russ).

From what I've been looking at just now, I'd echo what Onisuzume said and state that the Tadpole will be longer and thinner than (both the Land Raider and) the Malcador - as the Malc doesn't seem that much larger than a Leman Russ in the comparative picture I'd hazard a guess that the Emhar model will be significantly longer, and possibly thinner. As for exact dimensions,well, I've had a look but I can't find anything so far. Any use?

Edit - I've found the real world dimensions of the tank - The length of the tank was 35'5" (10.8m), height 8'2" (2.49M) and the width was 13'6" (4.11m). If you can be beggared to do the scale conversions, you can then find the approximate dimensions of the scale model and that'll be half the problem solved. I hope you enjoy mathematics more than I do...

At 1;35, which I can only imagine it is, 1:48 is fairly rare, that makes it...
308mm long, 71mm tall and 117mm wide.

That's fairly close to two chimeras without turrets, placed end to end. It's going to take a fair amount of effort to make to look good though.

It took me about 8-10 hrs each, of pure plasticard and bits box work, to convert the 1:35 Tigers I'm using as Macharius varients. Real world tanks need time and effort to be made to work.

not a tadpole, but still a good guide to scale...

Cheers,

That looks rather good, actually...very tempted to have a bash at one of those myself!!
