Airfix 1/48 scale buildings

Hi all.
The above link is to the 2012 airfix release news. If you scroll down you'll find two 1/48 scale desert type buildings that they plan to release.
How close is this scale to 40K as I think they would make good buildings for a 40K battlefield?
Your thoughts.

1/48th isn't too bad. They should list the dimensions somewhere?

A 1/48th WW2 tank is similar in footprint to a 40k tank, although 1/35th seats fit orks nicely...

1/48th for vehicles is pretty close to GW scale vehicles, 28mm heroic scale is around 1:60 with the oversizing GW does, so 1:72 will be too small and 1/35 is definitely far too large (last 1/35 scale WWII tank I bought was about the same size as a Baneblade).

28mm Heroic is taken as 1/56 these days, I use 1/48th tanks withem though and they fit in just fine.

Also look at the 1/48th Airfix MRAPS for vehicle options if your not GW tournament wedded.

Welcome to the site jaeri333 - however please take the time to read the forum rules as I've already had to delete some of your posts, and also please don't resurrect old topics if you don't have anything useful to add; your post makes sense because you state that 1/72 is a large size than 1/48, but it's the other way around ... :|
