    Thank you George...sorry to be a pain.

    Sorry, I didnt mean for the actual products to be used in a diorama, I was giving modeler's a site to get sizes of things they may want to build. They give you 1:1 sizes so you can scale it down to what you need. I use this converter, scroll down to bottom and put in your measurements. http://www.scalemodelersworld.com/online-scale-converter-tool.html 35" would be 35.56 mm in 1/25 scale 16" would be 16.26 mm 17" would be 17.27 mm I have not confirmed their sizes to the real stuff but from what I have looked at, they seem to be realistic sizes. Some are vague measurements for weird shaped things but it will give you an idea at least.

    Thanks George! Any chance of telling me the measurements as the pics are hard to figure out without seeing the bottom edges. It looks like 2 1/8" tall without the platform? bottom portion 1" deep? Top 1 1/2" wide? If you could tell me height overall and height of just top portion, width of top portion, and depth of top portion, I can go from there. I see what you mean by it being larger than MBC's pump. Thanks again for your help!

    I stumbled onto a goldmine for diorama builders while looking for dimensions for gas pumps. Check out this site! It has measurements for everything, including my gas pumps! Scroll down to categories, select what you want, select something within your options and bingo! nice pic, height, width, and depth sizes! They are props, but should be close enough to the real deal. http://www.airdesigns.net/

    Thanks Pat, I have tried to use the methods you and others mentioned to get a ball park size and if necessary, I will use do them that way. The pics you uploaded are great, I have seen most but you found a couple I haven't seen, thanks! I may have just stumbled onto a goldmine for diorama builders! Check out this site!

    Hey George, do you still have the doozy pump? I could use the measurements to re-scale to 1/25. I have looked at MBC's pumps but they are of a different style...perhaps a general measurement of those might get me in the ball park. I made some Sinclair pumps before and after a lot of work, they seem too small to use so I am being cautious this time.

    That is beautiful! Very nice work!
  8. Need Help!

    Can anyone give me the dimensions to this style gas pump? I believe it is a Tokheim 1100 -1200 series pump. I have spent many many MANY hours on the internet and have come up empty handed. I am planning to make my own from scratch but need some help with the sizes. I know Doozy makes these but at 20-40 bucks plus shipping for each pump, and I need at least 6, I can't justify that kind of money. If anyone has the Doozy type c pump, I can use the measurements to get back to 1:1 scale and then down to 1:25 as they are 1:24 scale. If anyone has access to the real deal and can measure it, that would be great! Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
