Figure Sizes and scales

Generally the there are 2 different types of classification for miniature figures. Scaling is used for the modelling world while size is used for the Historical miniature standards. Scaling is a method that uses a metric system to scale down from an actual person.

Popular model scaling such as 1/35 or 1:35 are one fine example which means the same thing. The use of size measurement is however different in that a 54mm miniature figure is actually measured from the soles of the feet up to the eye level. Yes, the eye level and not the top of the head.

For many of us who are not aware of this metric systems, assume for example that a 54mm is equal to a 1/32 scale figure. That is however far from being accurate . Below is a more accurate comparison of the different scales versus sizes list.
