    Default 1920's Art Deco kits

    I found these lasercut 10mm wargaming kits just now. Thought some of you may be interested.

    What scale does 10mm translate to?

    1:185 , so these wouldn't be bad for background buildings . They do need some work to make them look American or European, just like the Kato structures.

    Interesting idea for us Urban Modelers.

    and at 15 pounds (which is about 20 dollars across the pond) not a bad price.

    It also looks like they are sold in sections (foyer, middle block, roof), so that stacking to build a taller building is easily possible.

    Regarding the dimensions those buildings are nearly exact 1/160. 10mm scale means that an average person is 10 mm high, in reality 160 cm.

    160 cm is small for an average person , in the Netherlands it's very small.

    So what's that in REAL measurement - how many feet and inches???

    Oh, I guess I can look it up in an online conversion ... 5'3" yup, OK for a woman's height but pretty short for a man, eh?

    If you were modeling the Philippines the 160 would come close to the average man, average American woman is 162 American man 179, Average Dutch man 182 , woman 168. If you look at people younger then 35 , the difference between Americans and Europeans becomes more. With my 190 ( 6 foot 3 for you ) I used to stick out in a crowd , nowadays I would still be large but wouldn't stick out , average Dutch man between 18 and 35 is almost 186. Sorry if this is ruining this thread , if so I will take it away.

    I have a couple of Art Deco kits put away that I've not built. Are they very difficult to make? I like how they look from photos I've seen on the internet.
