Title: What scale

Hi,

Can anyone give a "rough" indication of scale of the workboat to make accessories look the right size?

Did you have specific workboat in mind. Figures and fittings can be purchased, or made, in a number of scales. Tugs and the like are commonly built in 1/48, 1/32 and 1/25 scales.

Sorry,

I was refering to the Dickie type pre built model. I have decided, having only just bought it to make it look a bit more realistic, without going to massive expense.

Hi Lee,
You're pretty much spot on with that, most of us have 'converted' around the 1/45 level. Good luck with yours! :-))
