I was "growing" a fruit tree for the Abandoned House when I was once again confronted with the issue of "scale". It was some rambutans I bought from a Thai artisan which I wanted for my tree but these rambutans were a little on the big side (even by my very imprecise standards).
As some of you may know of me, I am not one to measure down to the last millimeter for a flawless 1:12/24/48 scale. After all, the same object can be different things in different scale. For instance, my Abandoned House could be a 1:48 chateau or a 1:24 shed or even a 1:12 pigsty. Conversely, an object can, and do, come in many sizes. There are large, medium or small sunflowers or tables or maybe even....
So at the end of the day, how do I tell when something is of the right size? Simple, really. It just must look right,
Or if it doesn't quite, we can always call it a dragon fruit tree instead of a rambutan tree, maybe even a red durian tree.
Surely our small world can be anything we want it to be, right?
