So they used to have a dimension thread over on the-waaagh.com
. It included dimensions for both both GW
main and Forge World vehicles and was a great resource for Ork scratch builders that might not have access to the real vehicles to measure but still wanted something with the same footprint.
If you used the site then you will know it has had issues for years. First with not being able to sign up as a new user, then over the last year major server issues and a on again off again relationship with the internet.
Its back up for now, but you have to wonder for how long?
I figured the dimension thread was worth preserving and considered just plagiarising the thread. But I believe in giving credit where credit is due and just looting it wholesale is a lot more honest.
So the original thread as started by "big mek tank krusha" is here
and the content of the first post is quoted below.
If the owners of Dakka, the-waaagh or big mek tank krusha have a problem with what I have done then
Sorry, serious hat time, if its a problem let me know and I will remove this post.
If any Dakka users want to contribute missing dimensions, more accurate data or comparison photos then please do and I will see what I can do about updating this first post.

right, so after seing another 'how big is' thread I figured it'd be good to get a pinned thread with the sizes of all the stock ork vehicles in it, along with chimera chassis, rhino chassis, leman russ and landraider (the 'standard' loots).
one faltering step later and i realised i didn't have many of these vehicles.
thanks to bigmek Gobsmasha and a load of other gitz, we've got these dimensions:
It goes: Tank name,Height,Width and then Length:
Battlewagon: 3" tall without turret, 5" tall to top of turret, 3" wide, 6.5" long
Chimera: 2" tall, 3.6" wide, 4.5" long
Rhino: 2" tall, 3" wide, 5" long
Trukk: 3" tall, 2.5" wide, 5.5" long
Deffdread: 3.5" tall, 2.5" wide (feet)
Killakan: 2" tall, 1.5" wide (feet)
Landraider: 2.5" tall, 5" wide (no sponsons), 6.25" long
Stompa: 9" to top of head 12" to smokestacks 7" wide (bottom of skirt) 7" long (bottom of skirt)
wartrakk: 1" tall without driver/gunner, 1.5" wide, 4" long
Leman Russ: 3" tall to turret, just over 2" tall to tracks, 4" wide without sponsons, 4.75" long
warbuggy: 2" tall to gunners head, just over 2" wide, 3.5" long
fighta/bomma kit: ~22,5cm wide, ~22cm long, hull 18cm.
skorcha kit: Trakk: 3.75"L 1-3/8" W 2.25"H, w/storage tank: 5-7/16" L 1-3/8"W 2.25"H
Gargantuan Squiggoth: 9" tall, 5 1/2" wide, 13" long
bikerboss: 2" tall to head, 1.5" wide, 4" long
big trakk: 2.5" tall, 3 3/8" wide, 6 1/4" long
krusha tanks: 5.5" tall, 4" wide, 8" long
Grot Tanks: 50-60mm wide, 60-70ish mm long and about 55mm high with the turret
grot mega-tank: 2.5" tall without turrets, 5" tall to top of turret, 3" wide, 6.5" long
what we still need:
warbuggy dimensions ding!
wartrakk dimensions ding!
skorcha kit dimensions ding!
leman russ dimensions ding!
width and length of land raider ding!
width of chimera ding!
ForgeWorld stuff (if possible):
mega/mekadread dimensions (i assume roughly the same)
big squiggoth dimensions
gargantuan squiggoth dimensions ding!
krusha tanks dimensions (i assume roughly the same) ding!
grot mega tank dimensions ding!
grot tank dimensions (i know they'll vary a bit but roughly) ding!
big trakk ding!
fighta/fightabomma ( i assume roughly similar)
scale shot with:
grot, boy, nob, meganob, warboss, megaboss(ghazzy) and the special characters if possible ding!
featuring a ruler if possible to give scale.
small conversions that don't change the scale (repositioning, headswaps, banners e.t.c) are fine but preferably nothing to change the scale of the model itself please.
any dimesions you can give will be much appreciated, once i've got all the basic ones i'll be making a table of it to make it easy to read and mad grot says he'll pin it! and we can be rid of 'how big is' questions forever!
well, we'll be able to point them there anyway.
