What do you mean? You need to be specific.....No one knows what another dimension is.

Another way to get fairly accurate measurements for ANY portion of a model A body (or others as well) is to buy a plastic model (Revelle etc) and then use your calipers or a very precise rule to get the measurements...then just multiply by whatever the scale the model maker used (usually 1/24 or 1/25). I used this method for the Rat on a Shoestring project and it worked pretty slick.

Dewey, the second I read your post I pictured some of those screwed up Monogram models in full scale. LOL I don't think I would trust that method.

Brian,

If I were attempting an "exact" replica I would have to agree with you that only a full size original would do for getting the correct measurements. But for determining relative proportions, fitment for various frame/chassis options, and for homebuilt projects like the Rat on a Shoestring, I think the plastic model method can be quite helpful. Like everything else, it's just another tool in the box and it may not be suitable for every project.
