A place to post loosely related projects and activities where they might entertain. Very unlikely to present a consistent narrative.
0.87 is the ratio between 1:76 and 1:87, two scales which I work to when I play with model railways. Both the scale ratios are obscure. For those modelling the railways of the British Isles, the existence of both scales has been inconvenient and uncomfortable ever since they both emerged in the 1930s. For anyone, it should be obvious that picking a scale ratio simply because it broadly represents in actual millimetres (or fractions of actual millimetres) a prototype imperial foot is a silly thing to do.
