    Default Building a new Ark of the Covenant

    A friend of mine is willing to take on creating a 1/6 Ark for me, seeing as how I passed on Toht all those years ago.

    I need a place to start.

    What are the correct dimensions of the box? I found a point of reference that listed it as 133cm long by 80cm tall and wide, so that's about 8cm by 5cm tall and wide. That about right?

    I am not sure on the exact dimensions but I would like another version of the Ark with the correct paintjob. Sideshows ark is great but not painted accurately. Also I am not sure but the scale seems a bit off.

    Yeah, now that I look at those numbers, there's no way that can be right. I found a new pic over at therpf, which should be correct.

    What was wrong with Sideshow's paint job?

    Sideshow's was more of a matte gold. Not shiny like the Movie Prop.

    Yea, but also pretty much impossible to find. Let alone for a decent price.

    Okay, I found two points of reference, and I would appreciate some clarification about which to base my new ark.

    This seems pretty official, as it's an officially licensed Acme print, dimensions are listed as 92 inches long, 26 inches tall and 27 inches wide

    I found another sketch from someone at The RPF, which has it at 46 inches long, 25 inches tall and 30 inches wide. I'd imagine that the Acme dimensions include the poles, and 26x27 and 25x30 are pretty close when scaled down to 1/6, but which one should I go off of?

    Does this pic help at all, or are you trying to match the actual prop dimensions scaled down?Click image for larger version.
