I don't put much stock in the official heights, I just know this is a much closer approximation to the "quality" animation. Meaning the good episodes, where it was not outsourced animation.
The Yamato 1/60 is what i used as a starting point for making the scale calculations for my 1/48 kit and this. It feels like the right size to me.
I forgot i had a Moscato scout regult. here is a pic to compare the leg size, guess that i am like 10 to 15 percent bigger than his for those wondering the comparison on those.
