No i'm affraid. It's 1/9th scale. So it fits with nothing X). To small for the big chief figure and to big for the co toys.
I made all the box at the same scale and i happened to have made this one the first while being under lock down and restricted to what matérials i had accès to.

Regardless of their scales, they are still beautiful pieces!

Oof!  Imagine applying that logic (1/9th scale) to a Death Star "miniature"!  :o

Quote from: MacktheTardisGuy on Apr 06, 2021, 10:40 amAny progress?

Well so far, i've 2 other models that i think are way better i quite à few ways. I'm really looking forward to build that foldable séries 4 one. I' guess we'll see how it turns out.

On this current model, i don't think i'll do much more. Maybe i'll remake the roof, the police signs and doors so they Mache à bit more the actual props, but in the end, i just need to remake à A/B prop. This one will serve me as an expériment model. Like i did for the windows ans stuff. May be i'll graph bad Wolf on one side.

I just know i'll keep it around, as it is my first réal shot à a tardis model
Might try some stunts with it

Not mendeatory. But yeah i think, exept for a far apart or it shot, it would just be matpainting or else.

I was, of course, being silly.  but to milk the absurdity, a 1/9th scale Death Star "miniature" would be around 11 miles in diameter (assuming the station in "A New Hope" was an even 100 miles wide (160 Km)).  Oy!

I wonder how many tank model kits that would require to "detail"?  ;)

Makes me wonder what is the biggest model made for a movie or series

redfern

If not the largest, I think the "maxi-tures" built by the WETA shop for "Lord of the Rings" rank up there.  At least I recall some "behind the scenes" material in which they talked the size of the various buildings and environments.  But that's was roughly 20 years ago.  I have no idea what some productions may have constructed since then (in those increasingly rare instances when they still opt for physical models over "digital").
