Royal Navy Stanchion height
« on: June 10, 2020, 06:28:47 pm »

Hi All
Can anybody tell me what height the stanchions are on a warship? I'm referring to the standard three bar stanchions on the weather decks.
Thank you.

In 1/96 scale I use 11mm high stanchions which when scaled up gives 1.056m or 3ft 5 inches approximately.

Hi Raflaunches.
Thank you for your swift reply. I have a supply of 11mm stanchions for 1/96th which look correct but wondered if there was a standard height for them.
Much appreciated

I scale most stanchion height from 1.05m height I remember from HSE (onshore) training and building things on and offshore. I lost access to dnv/loyds rules regs these days (presumably RN has its own standards anyway).  No doubt it changes year on year anyway bit it usually looks right anyway!

Hi RST
You have thankfully confirmed what has been said by raflaunches, 1.05 m does indeed mean 11mm in 1/96th scale.
 Thank you for your reply, that is what I will be using on my frigate.
