galacticprobe you are a star, I will check out those links. I think the season 16 Key to Time series version is the way I would like to go I was thinking it was the same as the season 15 but it's not (amazing how many changes occurred to the console during this period) I like to colours of the season 16 version.

Excuse my mathematical ignorance but how do I convert the full scale measurements into 1/13 scale, I've tried googling it but I can't find the answer, is it a matter of dividing the measurements by 13?

Many thanks for your help

No problem, frax. The references should come in very handy, especially the photos when it comes to judging the controls' sizes and shapes.

I think that's about how it works. (I know someone will correct me if I'm wrong.) Another possibility is to print out the drawings (side and plan views) so they're at the scale you need, and then take direct measurements from them. But I think taking full measurements and dividing them by 13 should give you the 1:13 scale you're looking for.
