What scale is right for your next model?

Free online extra
By Terry Thompson
What scale is right for your next project? That depends on the subject of your model, and what characteristics you find most important. Some of us are "constant scale" builders - we build all our models to a single scale, sometimes regardless of the subject. This allows easy size comparisons and lets us combine several models in a diorama. (It also reduces the time you spend browsing at the hobby shop, but you'll have to decide for yourself if that's an advantage.)
