When designing a custom prop for a fan video that was a manageable size, it occurred to me that a replica of an original series console could be scaled down quite a bit and still give the same overall impression without seeming smaller or squat at all - especially in person. The only slight adjustment is to not shorten the plinth quite as much. For the most part you can get away with a reduction to about 85 percent the original size before things start to look off. This makes a console 6 feet at the widest.
