Your Baby Corvette is so Cute
While I had the X-Wing Miniatures Tantive IV out for some pictures, I decided to get its picture next to my Lego version. The Lego version is 95% of the proper scale from the FFG star fighter models while their model is 58% of the star fighter scale. These two next to each other made me think about how my kids assign things as baby and mommies/daddies when they have to similar things in different sizes. My son has two Luigi's from the Cars movies. One is about matchbox scale while the other one is bigger such that it wheels line up with wooden track sizes. Big one is the daddy and the little one is the baby. So we get the same thing here.
For practical reasons the log based size scale makes sense but it would be cool to see someone play with a scale star destroyer (6 m long).
