Default IMAI Shadomobile scale?

Does anyone know the scale of the IMAI Shadomobile model? This is the one with a miniature SKY 1 that goes in the rear compartment.

I was going to build this model and the decals are pretty much shot. I know JBOT makes the markings for the Mobiles in several scales but I don't know which set would fit.

Thanks for any help.

I think it may be around the 1/48 scale mark. If you have the Mobile I would get a pack of Tamiya 1/48 figures and test for how a figure would look in the cabin.
It's a long time since I built one so not 100% sure.

Ok thanks. Had some 1/48 figures and compared. Looks about right.

Great, glad I wasn't miles off

Are you going to rebuild the running gear and detail the cabin?

I plan to give the cabin a more detailed appearance. Since I'm deleting the missles and the firing trigger, I can make the cabin deeper. I have some old Monogram bomber pilot figures that are 1/50ish scale that would look decent in there. Used some to add legs to the Joe and Mac figures in the IMAI Mac's car for which I'm currently scratchbuilding a full interior.

As far as the running gear goes, I have two sets of the tracks and was planning to seperate the wheels, glue them back to back to make them thicker, and add new tank tracks using brass rods for the axles. Not sure what would be a suitable replacement for the tracks yet. Would like to have them still operate and roll.

May even try to scratchbuild a Skydiver using that tiny Sky 1
