Funny. the other day I was working calculations on the same matter.
I wanted to figure out if the weight of, say, 100 lb. is "real" in scale
1:6.
Well, we know that when the scale is doubled, the volume, and therefore the
weight is multiplied 8 times. (materials won't matter in the calculations; the
weight of steel in a real tank supposedly averages light plywood and heavy
lead of batte
ries )So a tank in the hobby, in scale 1:6 weighs 100 lbs.
in scale 1:3 it should weigh 100 x 8 = 800 lbs.
In scale 1:1.5, 800 x 8 = 6,400 lbs.
And in actual size 1:1 a plywood tank with large batteries
should weigh 6,400 x 3.37 = 21,568 lbs. or about 10,000 kgrs, if you will.
That would be rougly half the weight of a real Tiger tank??

As little or as
much as you like. I would say most are in the 75-100lb. range. Some
are more though.
