Syrian Mk IV Panzer-a question of scale?

Recommended Posts

I've recently bought the old Monogram 1/32 Mk IV Panzer kit.  I have an idea for a project, building the model as one of the Syrian Mk IVs that fought in the Six Day War in 1967.  I need a Dshk 12.5 machinegun for the project and can only find aftermarket pieces in 1/35.  Will the difference between 1/32 and 1/35 be that evident if I use the smaller gun on the build?  I guess my only other option will be scratch-building the MG and I would rather not have to do that.  I would appreciate any suggestions or advice!  Thanks a lot, Gary.

If historical accuracy is important, it was not a DShK gun but a Breda Safat salvaged from their Ba-65 aircraft.  Yes, I made it even more difficult to model except... I have only seen the gun mounted on staged inspections and parades:


 Doesn't look like the Russian gun...
