Was there ever a model of an American phone booth?  For the younger folks in the crowd, this is where us old farts went to make a call in a public place. 

A friend has 1/6 scale Bill & Ted so it needs to be about 15" tall.

I believe that the old "Phone booth T" kit had a 1/25 scale phone booth.  Good luck in finding one of those.

The old IMC dodge 'touch tone terror' had a telephone booth in the kit

If you really need one I see a scratchbuilt one in your immediate future.

probably easy enough to scratchbuild from cardboard and clear acetate.

In regards to touch tone terror there might be somewhere in the universe a broken dusty kit sitting on a shelf to be recycled or someone of the model builders here could duplicate it.

another suggestion is Pola "G" scale phone booth which would need some moifications

R2 announced a reissue of this kit a while back.....maybe to much missing right now. 

There are a few 'G' scale kits out there.....look at those.

I have some where in my stash the "Stroker McGurg" phone booth which in my opinion the booth is larger to fit the figure in it and not to scale.

If I find it I will measure the booth. Don't know if these are the same kit base

Wow! That's a classic old phone booth... I can almost smell pee!

So Jeff, buy that and copy it. Then resell it. Problem solved!

When 'Scale Modeling by Chris' was around, before he passed away, he made a 25th scale telephone booth. You could also check with doll house stores for 12th scale.

I have no idea where I got the tall T. I did go through the stash and found the remnants of my original. Here are some pics

A little bit larger than what the dimension mentioned in the auction of 34x33x88
