    I am just wondering. Do you have the GigaSpace configuration? Or was it the BigSpace? I remember some discussion - wait, i found it, yes you have the GigaSpace...

    Great! A model of your own rig would be awesome to see! Can't wait to see the results! Happy building Thijs!

    bought today a model of a flower ecport company.
    i already had the manufactory model,but this is from a modelbuilder and is more correct.
    nevertheless at some points is the tekno model better than this one,but overall this one compares the Original better

    Thanks Ralf.
    can't remember if i had mentioned earlier, but the scale is 1:50.
    the most factories use that scale, Tekno ,WSI ,Conrad, Lion Toys, Joal as for the biggest factories, smaller factories also use that scale.
    siku was 1:55 but stepped over to 1:50.
    a little manufactory in England Smith models but others also made them in 1:48, but that is because thwy made them in inches and recalculated it is 1:48
    French companies use the 1:43 scale, which has as +point that cars models al made in 1:43, so trucks and cars fit together.
