      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
