Almost forgot! 1/43rd is 7MM to the Foot, not inch. 7 MM is a bit over a quarter inch so 7mm to the inch would be a bit bigger than 1/4 scale!!!!!!!!
I'll shut up now. :roll:


My bad, of course it is 7mm=1 foot! :oops: :oops:

Now it makes a lot more sense. :wink: :wink:

Can you explain 1/14th?? I know the answer but want to test you!


I flunked! :( :(

I have NO idea where 1:14 came from. All I can remember is first seeing it used for expensive hand-built models from Yurp. So what's the scoop?

It all started with the Rio 1/14th Atlantic to celebrate their 100th model which was a 1/43rd Atlantic. They make their patterns in 1/14th so they can pantagraph down 3-1 to get 1/43 (all rounded off). Weird, Huh! Some of the other Eye-talians started to chime in in the same scale. I have no idea how 1/28th(Japanese) or 1/22(Togi Alfa kits from Italy) or all the other weird scales started. My brain is full :shock: and it is full of mostly useless stuff. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. I bet Art Anderson knows though !
Take care, Dave!

Thanks for the smarts upgrade, Andy.

This weird scale stuff burns me out, too. Let's not even think about 1:9, 1:29, 1:76 and that world! :?

Best to all,

They haven't used that logo since the 60s, mine does not say Monogram, nobody thinks I am Monogram, and no losses could be proven anyway. Nobody cares. It was a cool look and we updated and modified it to look like a serial # plate. I think it looks good.

Hey Andy-
Please set one aside for me. I gotta get one of those bad boys. I'm going to add some Duesenberg touches to it though. 8)
