    Astronaut Figure for Scale Models

    Hi All:mrgreen:

    SAustin16(Steve) had mentioned in my Saturn SA6 thread about adding a scale figure to my display to show the scale of my rockets.

    I had designed a 1/96 scale Astronaut,but I thought I would take it further and add our most popular scales.:twisted:
    So if anyone would like to add a scale Astronaut to add a bit of perspective to your rocket collection then here you go:mrgreen:

    My Hero...Thanks so much for that, I really appreciate it as I wanted to have a decent comparison for my Sat V & LUT

    Well done

    Wayne,

    Making that multi-scale is REALLY cool.

    Thanks.

    That's cool! We could start seeing these in space exploration paper model collections now. This makes me want to finish my Apollo 1/48 LEM I haven't touched for months. :(

    It's awesome you chose Buzz Aldrin (he's born in New Jersey, where I'm from. :p).

    Edward 'Buzz' Aldrin Multi-scale Figure

    Wonderful, Wayne,

    The multi-scale figure is a much appreciated addition.

    If I print the sheet on A3 size paper, I would probably get a 1:32 (or 1:33) scale figure out of the 1:48 figure. That would be perfect for my larger models, like the 1:32 U-Don LM I am currently building.

    However, if I print one for my ongoing 1:32 scale Atlantis space shuttle, I could make the space suit orange in color (for the flight suits) - it would be fine with white for the EVA suits, though.

    Thanks,
