A comparison of scale

While painting buildings for a 1944 Dutch town setting I am amazed at the different interpretations of scale by different manufacturers for 6mm battles.

This photo’ shows a couple of Total Battle Miniatures three storey houses against a Timecast version of the same.  TBM claim that their buildings are exagerrated in the vertical scale.

I think that Timecast is far closer to 1/200 than 1/300, even if the average 6mm (1/300 or 1/285)  model soldier could enter their doorways without stooping.
