yep, that's model scaling problem. But sometimes the specs are a little
ridiculous too. Take Rick Dom II and GM-Command. If you stand the two
models side by side you would say Dom should weight twice as much as GM,
but both are about 51 tons.

Yep, the GM's shield is exactly a riot shield (lovely!). But the last
time I saw riot police I was on the wrong side of the shields, so I don't
remember how they hold it :P But if something heavy hit the shield, the
wrist is gonna hurt like hell.
