I know some of the IA Books have real world dimensions for the tanks but I'm looking for the real world dimensions of Thunderbolts and Marauders for some fluff

Imperial Armour One has technical specifications for all vehicles in the book, which includes Thunderbolts, Marauders, Lightnings, and Vultures.

The T-bolt is said to be 14.2m long, 3.5m high incl. gear, with a wingspan of 16.06m. Slightly larger than the P-47 of the same name.

Both Marauder variants are 19.2m 4.8m 24.6m. Slightly larger than the B-26 of the same name.

Wingspan: 12.51 m (41 ft 0 in)
Height: 3.50 m (11 ft 6 in)

While on the subject, does anybody have measurements of the Thunderbolt model? Wingspan, height (tail & fuselage) and length would be great. :)

Just planning scratchbuilding it and i'd like to make it the same size.

Cheers,
Oskar

Better comparison would probably be against something like an F-18:
Length: 56 ft (17.1 m)
Wingspan: 40 ft (12.3 m)
Height: 15 ft 4 in (4.7 m)
Wing area: 400 ft (38 m)
Empty weight: 24,700 lb (11,200 kg)
Loaded weight: 37,150 lb (16,850 kg)
Max takeoff weight: 51,550 lb (23,400 kg)

Or the F-35 (Lightning 2 - previously the JSF):
Length: 50 ft 6 in (15.37 m)
Wingspan: 35 ft 0 in (10.65 m)
Height: 17 ft 4 in (5.28 m)
Wing area: 459.6 ft (42.7 m)
Empty weight: 26,000 lb (12,000 kg)
Loaded weight: 44,400 lb (20,100 kg)
Max takeoff weight: 60,000 lb (27,200 kg)

Yeah give or take. There are a couple of good Tbolt templates on the BWC, can email them to you if you want VanHel

Umm...I don't think quoting specs out of IA is kosha gents.

Fluffy specs is fine, just like how we can post about successor Chapters or discuss the War in Heaven. Posting rules is a very different story...

While on the subject, does anybody have measurements of the Thunderbolt model?I think the engine intakes on FW Imperial aircraft are roughly 1" in diameter, so their dimensions can be extrapolated from that.

Are the Thunderhawk realworld dims in one of them?

I did some scratchbuilding, If you search my posts, you can find some pics of some of my creations, and I found that 1 foot, equals 1 centimetre in 28mm scale. That is what I based nearly all my models on.
