Still can't understand why Doofus went with that orphan scale though---.
1/35 is actually a great scale for military. My Crockett had a 1/35 Italeri Seal Team on the stern awaiting deployment. At one time I had a dock for it with all kinds of 1/35 stuff, a deuce & a half, jeep, ambulance, M 60 tank, a workshop, and lots of people. Still have most of the stuff in a box someplace. I even had a Huey with the main rotor powered but didn't have room for it.

Ballasting is always tricky. Every model is so different. I try to allow access so I can add ballast as necessary till it's right. Learned that lesson with the Billings Calypso.
