28 mm but with more human-like proportions then most other minitures, I think.

Yeah, "non-heroic" 28 mm is what I think people call it.

I would take a figure and go to your local toy or hobby store. I found a pretty good match to the blue pickup by walking around the die cast truck aisle and holding a figure up to it till I found a match. I believe the truck was closer to 1:48 but sometimes in die cast they all do not follow the same scale. If you look for some O scale train vehicles you should be able to get a good selection but I know most people here have had good finds at discount stores with die cast selection

It's ultimately a 'by eye' decision if you can do it that way. The general rule of thumb seems to be that 1:48-1:50 is about right for 28mm, non-heroic (ie normal human) miniatures. So far, all the figure miniatures produced by FFP are 28mm scale.

There are some people on the war gaming forums that prefer 1:56. Others say that is just too small, hence the 'by eye' suggestion. Even if a vehicle is marked at a particular scale it may just look too small/large next to the miniatures you are using.
