Jeepers! That's TINY? A 3mm span model is only just about visible!

Believe me, a 3mm model is NOT visible when it falls to the floor. I still have half a squadron down there somewhere  :angry:

Oh yes, this is small. And about those planes that got lost on the floor, I do not know how many of my brave 1/700 scale sailors have been lost the last years. Surprisingly, its mainly my British soldier that try to escape, don't know why.

Saw those Fujimi kits now and then and was fighting with me to get some, but now when I see yours, hmm maybe...

But this reminds me if I should run some 1:3000 scale tests with the 3D printer. :)

Cool, not so big. I have a few hundred 1:1250 scale ships here and wanted to build a diorama for them, but after some inital planning I found out that it would a too big to put somewhere..... :)

You can take a queue from the RR guys and make it modular.  Then you can piece it together at a show if you want to show it all off.  I am trying to do a 72nd scale SAM-2 site and it would be about 6' square which is a little hard to handle trying to get it through doorways.  Been toying with several smaller bases centering on each SAM launcher, the Fan Song and maybe the P-12 and then I can put them kind of closer on the tables to display them or even enter them separately.

Also, I noticed this diorama has already been rightfully nominated for a Whiffie (twice) so I don't have to do that.

How long is a carrier in 1/3000 scale  please?

I'm trying to get my head round the size of this, and failing...……….

The Graf Zeppelin is 8.8cm, that's 3.46 inch for you imperial types.
The wingspan of the Bf-109 on deck is 3.1mm, which translates to 0.13 inch.

Must have been tricky to calibrate the gauges on the instrument panels accurately...  ;D

Yes, this would be possible, but it still needs some space. Too much according to my GF.... And we all know who is the boss at home :)

Did you preshade the panel lines?

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I had to correct the rivets on the tail of the me-109's as well. Completely wrong!   :laugh: :laugh:
