I don't know how you go so expertly from 1/43 to 1/12. Do you have any observations about lessons learned?

Actually it's the same point of view I have held all along, be it 1/8 or 1/87, or even 1/160. I build in all those scales and just treat each one the same.

There is no engine in most small scale cars, but the same effort and detail you would put into an engine on a 1/24 scale car is the same detail level to put into a smaller scale model's parts of the same approximate size. Like the body of a 1/43.

Those 1/43 scale cars that do have engines? Well, treat the engine like you would a wheel on a 1/25 scale model as far as level of paint/detail work.

Scale is somewhat irrelevant when it comes to building, except when you run out of space building large scale, (or maybe loose a part building smaller scale...)
