You can reduce the display size of images with a simple mod to the first part of the image tag, just add a width or height number
(I used 800 as an example):
Base tag:[img]
Modified tag width:[img width=800]
Modified tag height:[img height=800]
The space between img and width or height is important.
Clicking on the image opens it up full size.

I modified your big pic to [img width=1000]

Found in the Kow Yokoyama Facebook group (LINK!):

Interesting scale-o-rama possibilities. Bandai 1/144 AT-ST with 1/35 figure

Unmanned infantry support walker? Wouldn't look out of place with a couple modern Marines next to it. Replace walker cockpit with a weapon station with an M240 and some AT-4s?

The size would also look right to make it a manned walker. Sorta like the AT-RT from StarWars.
