Why excellent model companies just don't make it ? in General Discussion Posted May 12 1 hour ago, IPMSUSA2 said: There are times when accuracy can be taken too far, which is the reason I tell people that we build representations, not replicas. It is impossible to build a 100% accurate replica of a 48th scale aircraft because the thickness of the skin/bulkheads/etc would be so thin that you would be able to read a magazine through them. What we actually do is to build representations that LOOK like replicas. To do that successfully is where the skill is. Very true.
