" 1/43 is a truly odd scale selection "
1:43.5 is almost always abbreviated to just 1:43
But 1:43.5 works out to exactly 7mm per foot ...
... so is actually quite convenient when measuring your stuff.
Something I found out by accident, is that 'Lego'(TM) minifigures are 1:43 scale ...
... if you take 6' as being the height of a figure, they are exactly that !
1:43 has always been a very popular scale for diecasts as well ...
... 'Corgi' and 'Dinky' and 'Hornby' etc. etc. to name just a few.
There are plenty of excellent oDd finds on eBay in 1:43 scale as well.

AWESOME work Alwin !
Great to see you have found a way of Posting your modelling ...
... without giving the game away, on the 'whole deal'.
We can't wait 12 bloomin' months to see your modelling work ...
... that diorama contest sounds good ...
... but HEY ! we don't want it to create a whole load of modelling RECLUSES !
The transformer wire is called 'Enamelled Copper Wire' ...
... & is just a thin insulation, so that more wire can be wound onto the transformer.
It is kinda like polyurethane varnish, or similar.
The wire used, is kinda just pretty soft normal copper, under the coating.
GREAT hooks !
