So recently while getting familiar with Shapeways and all its goodness I came across this
Soldiers from the Robotech, sorry, Mospeada anime. Basically space soldiers in armour. Which is cool in and of itself but even cooler was that they are available in any scale. So I had some 1/60 figures printed cause maybe Id want to do a Battletech city scene diorama someday and Im NOT using the oversized figures out there that pass for 1/60.
A true 1/60 scale figure is 28mm tall. Most of those tabletop gaming figures, and you know the ones Im talking about, stand like 32-35 mm. Way too big.
But when I got the 1/60 ones, wouldnt you know it, they were 34 mm tall.
So what to do? I ordered his 1/72 figures and they came today.
Heres a pic.
And a size it up pic with a TRUE 1/60 figure.
Heres you can see, 28 mm. And remember this is what was labeled as a 1/72 figure. A 1/72 figure is 25mm.
and another size it up pic.
Oh and by the way, the real reason I wanted these is because Ive been looking for a figure standing with binoculars for ever so I could make this scene.
