You do remember the ruler that he has in one of his photos right.


No rulers in any photo. In fact I suggested he add it, so everyone could get a sense of scale. But he went with the giant mutant quarter instead... :rolleyes:

That giant ruler is a Photoshop picture Steve Boutte made for me. There is no real "big ruler" counterpart. Maybe this will help clear things up:

Ah. I am starting to dislike photoshop illusions lol. Never know with what china can make I figured it could been a real ruler for practical jokes like the quarter.

This should help Harry... I have the same kit. It's 1/32 scale and is widely regarded as one of the best kits Tamiya has ever produced! The squares are 1 inch and the car model is a 1/25th scale 66 Nova.

The reason I wanted him to include a coin in the shots is so people could see just how small that cockpit is, yet so amazingly detailed! I know how big (or small, depending on your viewpoint) the kit is... but I think many others really had no idea just how tiny yet detailed that cockpit is.
