    Scales are based on a replicas size in relation to its real world counterpart. This tutorial is not meant to be taken as an exact guide to what anyone can or should build; it is only meant to give a rough outline on scale in relation to main line figures. My hope for this body of work is to offer a helpful frame of reference for most customizers looking to work with model kits in creating new Transformers figures.

    1/72 scale aircraft

    I don't have any Classics jet figures anymore, which would scale up much better. Seen here is the newer movie Starscream mold, which is smaller than the previous deluxe size Transformers.

    In this case, it would still work, but be plagued with excess kibble or have a lot of undercarriage robot action going on, at the very least.

    The PCC Huffer would fit within the shell as well but would too fall victim to “kibblefication.”

    The Star Wars crossover Darth Maul has a nice length and width. Frontwards or backwards, it would likely work out nicely.

    Final image is the newer 1/35 deluxe in relation to the 1/72 Jet. It would work, but It would suffer from undercarriage robot syndrome as most jetformers do.
