"The supplier web pages, in general provide sizes of fittings rather than Scale."
This suggests, to my mind, that they were either unsure of the exact scale of the model, or it is not exactly to scale (definitions of semi scale) or it is a scale that was not the same as fittings available and the manufacturer went for the nearest scale for fittings.
It is still a lovely model though.

I've not noticed before now, but the model is described as semi-scale.


We know the model is 950mm long. Assuming the 'original' was 26 to 32 feet, you'd want to be aiming at fittings between 1/8th and 1/10th scale. Bit of a broad range there!


Maybe the best thing to do is to measure the seat height - the most obvious 'scale' item on the boat. Typical seat heights are around 18". What height is it on the model?

Hi,


I am new to the forum and model boat building. Chose an Aeronaut Queen to start with. In the past I have been building and running live steam trains.
Looking through lots of posts I cannot find anything definitive on Scale of the Queen. It is perhaps a hangup of train modelling that Scale dictates all, but not so boats.
The supplier web pages, in general provide sizes of fittings rather than Scale. That is if I knew what Scale I am looking for.
