A 24cm long humpback whale :D

HLJ doesn't say whether its a male or female so its probably up to you if it represents George or Gracie.....

It's 1/48 scale. So if you go with 360.8 feet. 90.2 inches.

I'm not sure of the dimensions of this (Studio Scale KBOP), but it just might be the size you'd need for that there whale.

Room and the cash.

I like the BOP but not that much. Oh well, was a nice idea while it lasted.......

We also have to remember the KBOP suffers from magical size syndrome, in general, but also within STIV. The size is inconsistent throughout the film. Look at just these three shots:

Ayup. I was going on the stated size to the stated size. We know we can't trust visuals.

I remember seeing a picture online from someone who photoshopped how big a hunchback would be relative to the KBOP shown in this pic. Needless to day, the KBOP was not large enough
