    I want to enlarge some models to 1/6 scale.
    I know that the better the fit at the starting scale then the better the fit with them enlarged.
    I am just wondering if any of the designers have a better track record with parts fitting?

    I think Halinski's armour models would come close to perfect fit. GPM and Modelik
    are good but there always seems to be a few fit problems.

    It isn't always the designer but also the production process. As in how many rounds of beta building does the publisher go through to get the last bugs out of the product.

    1/6 scale ! - you must have a lot of space to work in. A Kingtiger model about 170 cm long - inpressive.

    I'm test fitting some parts tonight.

    FLY are usually older designs so I guess you can't expect the accuracy of computer designed models. I've only built one FLY model (M1A1) - it only had minor fit problems as I remember it.

    I've never seen the GPM M1A1 model so I can't comment. The Fly model M1A1
    seemed to fit together pretty well with no major problems.
