Thread: 6” King Kong or 12” King Kong

  1. #1

    Default 6” King Kong or 12” King Kong

    I’m trying to decide on weather a 72 foot tall King Kong would be right for scale or a 144 foot King Kong would look right. From my research I’ve found that over the years Kong has grown in size. I think the original film 1933 he was 18 feet tall then rescaled to 24 feet taller brought to New York. The advertising said he was 50 feet tall.
    over the years in movies he has grown to over 120 feet tall. So I am using a scale of 1” equals 12 feet in actual size. I think this is in line or close to the 1/144 scale of our planes. Now I used two different sketch figures to scale it. 1 is a 6” dummy and the next is 12” dummy. I’ve provided a few examples of each, so what do you Think? The first 3 at the top are 12” and the last 3 at the bottom was 6 “! Please excuse the excess repetitive pic’s. It got away fro me lol

    From the perspectives used in your photographs Sam there doesn't appear to be much to choose between them, you could just as easily use the 6" model as the 12" one. 72' or 144' Gorilla ?! See what's on the market & looks best in the sizes given.

    your king kong seems to have a very bad case of mange. not a lick of fur left on the poor old monkey.

    I’m no liberal, Tree hugger or member of PETA but if you apply the law hypothetical to this movie
    Kong was Kidnapped from his Home, taken to a foreign land, pressed in to slavery and then summarily
    executed! The bimbo was not the victim! Lol hahahaha

    Default The King Kong

    I received the 7” tall King Kong of Skull Island yesterday. I think this is the one I’ll use for the
    King Kong scenario. This will make him 84 feet tall at 1/144 scale. I can go with that.

    yes I’m quite pleased with the look. It came with two different detachable heads. The enraged one is the one I like.

    Finding a Kong model of the right scale was the difficult part. From the 1933 film, he had to be about 12-15cm tall standing in 1/144 - meaning about 60 ft tall. The 9cm long Papo model of a crouching Gorilla is exactly right
