Some 19mm Chinese miners I have been working on.

Nice, but why 19mm?

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP04 Jan 2020 2:28 p.m. PST

Great work – but I also wonder about why 19 versus say 18 or 20 mm?

The H Man04 Jan 2020 7:53 p.m. PST

Thank you both. They are for HO rail.

Really nice sculpts! But is HO scale 19mm?

The problem with size names.

Thankfully TMP has a reference page:
"1/87 Same as HO scale (model railroad scale – "HO" is "half O" scale, or 1:87.2). Several popular lines of pre- assembled and painted armored vehicles are available in this scale. 18.5mm"
TMP link

Sure 19mm is not a commonly used name, but for HO i.e. 1/87 not a bad one.

Thankyou. I'd just say HO, but mm seems better for wargaming purposes.

Looking good!

Cheers. I took this photo in my new light box. A card water box with an LED on a 9 volt battery. Works a lot better than trying to avoid shadows under a lamp, as the top pic proves.
