Does anyone know how tall it is? I can't find any specs on it in the web? The only spec I found is that its 827g or 1.1 pounds.

dalong.net is your friend. He compares every kit to a standard pack of cigarettes. Check that out for size comparisons to give you a decent idea of the height.

IDK if it helps at all, but my PG Strike on a stand is about 15-16 inches tall not including the striker pack on the back.

Well, think of it this way. PG's are 1/60 scale, right. So if the Zeta Gundam is 65 ft tall, how is it model form.

I wish it were that easy. It all depends on how bandai defines the scale. 1"=1ft or 1"=.5 ft. Etc...

I think you misunderstand the idea of scale. 1 inch = 1 foot would be 1/12 scale. 1 inch = .5 ft is 1/6 scale.

So if the Zeta Gundam is 19.85 meters tall (source (http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/z/msz-006.htm)), that converts to 65.12 feet. We will round that to 65 for simplicity's sake.

Because we are cutting it down to 1/60 scale you multiply by the fraction 1/60. 65*1/60=1.08333...

So right about 13 inches, maybe a smidge taller because we rounded down earlier. Hope that helps, not just now but in the future.

or you can just divide by 65 by 60 and you will get the same answer. and if you wanted and exact answer in inches you would just times 65 by 12 then divide by 60. either way. but if your curios the meters to inches is 781.49606 which 1/60 scale is 13.025 inches
