Master Piece Models has an impressive collection of tools for scratch building all kind of projects. Among those tools they have rulers and scale rulers (a ruler that reads you the dimension of the model, ‘scaled’ to the real object).
In this review I’ll cover two of such rules: The 48th scale ruler and the EZ-Read ruler.
Below are the links to the items
- https://masterpiecemodels.com/product/scale-ruler-mmr-48/ $4.99
- https://masterpiecemodels.com/product/masterpiecemodels-ez-read-ruler/ $7.99
Both rulers are clear (that is great for whenever you are looking at drawings) and about 1/16th inch thick. They are slightly flexible, but I wouldn’t try to bend them much. They are laser engraved and very easy to read, given the contrast of the engraved number and the clarity of the material.
The MMR-48 scale ruler is 6 inches long and has scaled readings in both meters and feet. The EZ-Read ruler is 12 inches long (only imperial units) and has all the intermediate measurements in 1/8 of an inch increments in one side and 1/16 on the other side (no more guessing if 11/16 is smaller than ¾!)
BTW: They also offer a “4-pack” of scale rulers (72nd, 35th, 32nd and 48th) for $14.99 at https://masterpiecemodels.com/product/scale-rulers-4pack/
If you are into scratch building, these rules are great for all kind of measurements. Highly recommended
I would like to thank Master Piece Models and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
