The Perfect Scale

Keith Hayes

I had occasion today to unpack a box my Dad set aside for me when my folks downsized.

Dad was an HOn3 modeler, as that was what was available in  the 60s. In the box was a Balboa caboose I painted while in high school.

During college I experimented with larger scales and built an On3 Grandt kit. It is a fabulous model,  and if you have a chance,  you should get one of these and build it. My model is a bit rough for time, but warranted a family portrait.

Fortunately I also built a high side gon and that sealed the deal.

I thought you would enjoy the image.

I prefer 1:1scale. Kits are hard to come by. One should check out the backdrop in. Como.

No. I think it is New Market (just past Ward).
Here's the full image:

Here is a photo of Ward with what appears to be the same mine in the background:

The perfect scale is the one marked off in 1/64ths of an inch. Happens to cover all of the other scales - even 1:1! Being an Americanist do not burden me with the collectivite propensity to taut the metric system! Just don't...
