What approximate scale is the final model?

Thats a tough question.
The LEGO rail system is approx 1:38 scale.
The Panzerzug itself is 21cm long what seems a scale of about 1:47 to 1:50, dependent what track gauge (german 1432mm or soviet 1524mm) my blueprint (with no scale or measures on it) was based on.
The little PzIV turrets are 29mm wide. If you calculate with its RL width of 1.8 meters you get the scale of 1:60.
You see its not constructed in scale throughout

I am pretty sure, every printer needs some different settings.
Try to print it with the default or some well tested setting. Perhaps one of the little turrets first.
If the result is not to your liking, you can start to tweak one by one of the adjustments.

If you post your result under "Made", i or one of the Pros can give further hints.

I have a MakerBot Replicator 5th Generation, and I'm wondering if I should use the same settings?
