Given the (theoretical) idea that a man-sized figure should be
around 1.6 to 1.8 meters tall (or to the eyes, or whatever, I
don't really care that much), if you divide the mm scale by the
fractional scale you should end up with a constant, or

6mm / 1/285 = 1710
6mm / 1/300 = 1800
25mm / 1/72 = 1800
etc., etc.

So 15mm should be roughly (1800/15 =) 1/120 scale, and 1/35
scale should be roughly 52mm.

Easy, neh?
