Re: 1/48 based on the towel under the base
But if that towel was made by Trumpeter those measurements are probably way off.
A 1/48th scale 83 footer would be 21-3/4 inches long. Now if you notice the base is sitting on a blue towel. As a rule both hand and bath towels have a stabilizing bead sewed into them about 2 to 3 inches from the end. These beads are on average 3/4 to 1 inch wide.
Tom aka Nostradamus,
You did not provide a guess on the scale.
BTW - nice model.
Call me Nostradamus?
