All the way to the Top Dell :wicked


This might give you a better idea of scale.

I'm not at home ATM, but from memory I think about 30 inches.

A very nice selection. Bravo!

Del, at an height of 363 feet, a 1/144 model should stand 30.25 inches high, so John's guess is right.

John, that is just the answer I expected, all the way to the top indeed. :rolf :rolf

Tom, that answer is far too technical for me except to say it's damned big.
