    OK, armour guys, don't laugh... this is probably a dumb question. I have the GPM Panther kit (studying it) and it is in 1:25 scale. So my assumption is that armour uses 1:25 as standard scale, not 1:24 like large AC models.
    I am starting my design for the M48A3. Is there a larger yet scale- just in case I want to go bigger? If so, my guess is 1:16 (or 1:12)... or is this just not done? Bigger might be nice since small parts seem to be getting harder to work with as my eyes 'mature'.

    John.

    1:16 is the next "standard" size up John.

    yes 1:16 is the next "standard" for papermodels. And a very nice one too :)
    I'm one who can like to build bigger models.I have built 3 so far in 1:16 and will defenately do it again.
