I’ve worked in various micro scales most of my life. Recently, I’ve become intrigued by the potential for added detail that 1/48 scale (quarter inch scale) offers. After all, it’s absolutely huge in comparison to 1/144! The challenge, though, is how to bound that potential. Should drawers open? Cabinet doors have working hinges? Should the lumber be to scale in thickness?
When I was asked to contribute a 1/48 scale chair to an exhibit about dollhouse scale at the recent IGMA show in Teaneck, NJ, I decided to see just how detailed I could get. This is the result. To learn more about the process of making the parts and assembling this chair, stay tuned for my next post.
