Default Skydiver models scale

Hi! I know that talking about Ufo models scale is a nonsense 'cause there's no real reference as for planes and so on but I'd like to have your opinion guys..
My models collection is in HO (1/87) scale rougly compared with Ho scale figure,now my Reshape Skydiver is about 12 inch(30cm) and I'm wondering which scale could be the Wave ones,since is 18 inch (45cm) I belive...maybe 1/48 roughly? Or Cassini Design's ones?
Thanks for your Help!
Stefano

I think the Wave one states its scale at 1/72, I may be wrong but I think you would be hard pressed to fit a 48th scale pilot in there. And also have you compared figures from 1 manufacturer to the next? Some big differences there. And since the Rehape Skydiver is a Teru Yamada rip and in scale with the popcorn kits he put out, there all 1/144 scale. hope this helps.

Thanks! Actually I don't have the Wave Skydiver yet and so I couldn't compare it with any figure size but I did it with the Popcorn Interceptor and Mobile and 1/144 scale seems a little bit small for them...

Dude, If you sit and try and work it out you'll go nuts, Scale down a mobile cabin and try to get three action figures in there...... dig into the hull you might just do it. Now scale the Skydiver conning tower and try to get Lt Chin up there and people standing on top........Not gona happen so as you said in the begining, its all nonsense mate.
