Frequently Asked Questions
What scale are the castings offered by London Bridge?
The Parade Square, Bussler, and W. Britain lines are all to the standard 1/32 scale. This means, a foot figure stands approximately 54 mm or 2 1/4 inches. This scale is identical to most of the older and new figures offered by past and current companies.
Please note: The thickness of bases and head gear height will occasionally make a figure appear a slightly different size. Also, each sculptor has a distinctive style with the representation of anatomy and drapery. This can impact the visual appearance of each figure as well.
