The main castle section is 16 across and is 14' tall at the center. The 3 Dinky knights date from about 1970 and were made in England. They are plastic with metal bases and are 54 mm.

There is NO connection between the age of these figures and the actual condition of an individual figure. "Some people are in good condition for their age"...... This truism does not apply to German Composition figures... German Composition Scale Reference : A marching figure is measured from the bottom of the base to the top of the helmet. Some variation in height can be expected due to the molding process.
Figures, as well as the horses, have the same scale but do measure differently. SCALES : 4.5 cm = 1 49/64 inches tall... 6.0 cm = 2 7/16 inches tall.... 6.5 cm = 2 9/16 inches tall... 7.0 cm 2 3/4 inches tall..7.5 cm 2 61/64 inches tall... 10.5 cm = 4 9/64 inches tall... Stating that a figure is all original is meaningless unless it is examined under a black light.
