Not meaning to undermind the above post, but if you remove 6 mm that's about 6 in. in scale.... ^_^

Scale size, as noted, is .24 inches or .61 centimeters. I don't mess with my own calculations (because it makes my head hurt) and just go to the scale converter at the very bottom of this page, which I've bookmarked:

Ummmmmm, ANY scale expressed as a fraction like 1/25 means the model is, for instance, ONE TWENTY-FIFTH the size of the real one. You simply divide by the denominator (in 1/25, the denominator is the number on the bottom........25) of WHATEVER scale you're working in. Never fails, always works.

 

6 inches divided by 25 = .24" as stated above.

 

In 1/18 scale, 6 inches divided by 18 = .33333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333....................................

 

OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
