Hi guy's, been a while sinse I've posted anything on here  :embarrassed: I've been buying some small fittings for my Tsekoa II, mostly from the Cap Maquettes range, other than that I scratch build.  I've just purchased some silicone side fenders which measure 25mm in length, I'm trying to find the nearest scale to match 1:32??? The next size up is 31mm. Out of the two which would you say would be the nearest match in scale for my Tsekoa?

It just depends on whether your captain bought 3 foot ones, or 1 metre (meter for the other lot) !!

Oops, some bad math in there.
  the 25mm fenders come out at 800mm in real size, or 31.5 inches.
 Next time I'll check the math before posting!!
 I would see what they looked like, and go with what I think looks right. :)

Voyager, I am bit confused if the origins may use fenders in that case or not some old car-tyres.
Hmmmm, probably you should have a look at google for pics...

Just my penny,
