Tank is exactly in scale 1:76.
Watch video 0.50 sec+ :)
Nope, it's not.
The real tank (w/o barrel) is 7,62 meters long, wchich divided by 76 equals 0,1m (10 centimiters, while 1 stud is about 0,8cm long, makes 12,5 studs in lenght). You've got here about 21 (21x0.8cm=16,8 cm) it means, your model is in about 1:45.
The fact, that the blueprints you used were drawn in 1:76 doesn't mean that it's shown in real proportions on your screen (it all depends on the zoom, resolution etc) - the only way to make blueprints reliable is to download it, than import into a greaphics program, draw a line equal to the scaled lenght(you can also make it to the height or widht, but IMO lenght is the easiest way to do it), than resize the bluperints and print it. The printed bluperints are the ones you can trust. I know it by myself, as I always make my model in 1:40.
I hope you understand everything.
