AlnessW wrote:Thanks for the lead on EZToys - looks like some good options there, but I'm now a little confused about scaling... It seems like these 1:200 models of big widebodies are only about 12" in length. 24" or 26" (roughly) is more the size I'm after, as I want it to be a centerpiece and not a little paperweight to sit in the corner. Hence...1:100? Display stand ideal, but I could probably build my own pretty easily if need be.
This is the kind of thing I'm picturing - WRONG livery of course - but the size seems about right and not TOO rich for my blood:
