Hi guys I have managed to find her, I think.
She is based on a 57 mtr vessel so she comes out at 1/41.5 scale =1/40th

Hi Pete, sorry mate, from now on anything else they crops up I will ask you first.
Gorge wants to put a couple of figures on his boat and didn't know what scale to get
So asked me if I could find out, are or is that the correct scale? At 1/40

Hi Pete, trawling the web as I often do, I came across a thread about the Atlantis kit being
Rebuilt and the stated scale for the robbe 54" kit was 1/20th which looking at George's
Model is spot on.the figures he needs should be 3.6"

model railway figures. cannot remember which gauge though. either 1/18 to 1/24 should be near enough. I put my Captain Haddock on mine and it didn't seem quiet right, but neither did my airfix 1/24 spitfire pilot! too skinny.

Hi Klunk the nearest scale to 1 ;40 is 1 ; 43 which is 'O' gauge and there are lots of figures available.  Probably find a bicycle as well!

I have just finished a GG Ferry at this scale and have 20 people on board.  Got mine in packs of 20 or so painted.  Not checked out maritime figures though.

See you Sunday at Black Park, I hope to have my pond yacht working, not been out for a few years.
regards,
Roy
