Simple. A 6 foot man is 72 inches which when divided by 25 is 2 7/8" tall. Women average around 5'6" so that would be 66" or about 2 5/8" tall. A 1/24 scale man would be a bit taller as would a 1/24 scale woman.

Don't ask me to work out measurements...

Scale-Size = Real-Size divided by Scale-Factor

SS = RS / SF

SS = 72in / 25 = 2.88 inches for a 6 foot tall subject (72") SS = 60in / 25 = 2.40 inches for a 5 foot tall subject (60")

So around 2 1/2 to 3" for short to tall subjects.

first convert the full size measurement to a convienient unit for example: height in feet x 12 inches/foot = height in inches. The apply the scale height in inches x 1/35 = height in inches/35 = height of 1/35th scale representation.

to convert feet to inches multiply by 12

to convert inches to millimeters multiply by 25.4

to convert feet to millimeters - first convert feet to inches to inches (x12), then inches to millimeters (x 25.4), then apply scale
