Small ScalesAll scales smaller than 1 inch scale (1:12 scale). There can be other ones too, but here is a list of the most standard ones:
1:24 - half inch scale: 1/2 inch equals a foot (12 inches)
1:48 - quarter inch scale: 1/4 inch equals a foot (12 inches)
1:96 - eighth inch scale: 1/8th inch equals a foot (12 inches)
1:144: 1/12th of an inch equals a foot (12 inches) Also referred to as micro scale
A trade of miniature items. Swap participants send a specific number of IDENTICAL items to the swap coordinator. The coordinator then redistributes them so that all participants get that same number of DIFFERENT items back from the other participants.
UnFinished Object - Often a kit, but could also be any miniature that was started, but never completed.
Workshop Workshops are a teacher led class where you learn how to make or do something in miniature. Quarter Connection has online workshops. You get a kit or supplies with instructions in the mail. The teacher may schedule the date and time that they will be available for a ZOOM session for either a demo, Q&A session or a full blown class.
