Scale size
« on: April 27, 2013, 10:32:12 PM »

Hi, I have just finished a Hobbyking Swamp Dawg airboat and I would like to know what the scale is and where I can get figures of this scale to put on the airboat as it looks weird careering round the lake with nobody driving it! Cheers, Rob

Rob,

Can you provide some dimensions and images if poss?
If no scale is immediately apparent, it should be fairly easy to guestimate from the seat size.

The hight of the seat in full size would be 18 inches, (1.5 feet). Measure the model this will give you the scale.
