On the Lundby scale - 1:18 / 1:16 / 1:14..

October 5th, 2012

I was sort of thinking that Lundby (dollhouse) would be 1:16 scale, but couldn’t remember for sure.. So, I’ve finally googled it.. Turns out that it’s ‘officially’ 1:18, but that would make the doors about 240cm high in real life scale, so 1:16 would actually look better, with the doors being about 215cm high, if it was a real house.. SOME stuff could even be 1:14, and look OK in a Lundby house..

I was thinking of the dolls I’m probably going to have to make as I can’t find proper ones in the right size.. I’m going with 1:16, and a few mm extra height, to make them look right when compared to the door sizes, but not WAY too tall for the low part of the kitchen or the low bathroom..

The dolls are not on the top of my list of things to make, but I might do cardboard cut-outs, just to size the furniture I’ll make.. I’ve decided to go by eye, rather than following a scale as it will end up looking better that way.

Done with wallpapering and carpeting

Lundby dollhouse

I got all wallpapering and carpeting done, last night. So, this is how the Lundby looks now..

Lundby dollhouse

This is how it looked when I bought it for €5.

I’m going to add the partition wall now, between the stripes and florals in the living room.. Then I’ll start making furniture, which requires reading IKEA catalogue for some furniture measurements, and googling to make sure if Lundby is 1:16 scale or not (I can’t remember for sure).. I’m more familiar with 1:12 scale, or something a lot smaller, so this is kind of too close to my comfort scale, which is actually difficult!
