Hi ixion

In round terms (no pun intended)...

A 30inch OD lifebelt (big enough to fit over a normal adult man) would be 30inches x 25.4 = 762mm

Divide 762mm x 32 = 23.81mm

This one is a millimeter over that - but fine for 1:32 scale.

Nice try destroyer42

Mobile Marine Models actually buy their lifebelts from us at Reade Models...

(Apart from that, we met ixion at the Mayhem event at Llanberis over last weekend and discussed his requirements in depth).
