I have always wanted to know what size beads the Aardman model makers use for the eyes as it would make it much easier for me to work out the scale of the models. For the bunnies, i have always used 6mm beads, but for W&G and other characters I've used 8mm beads. Could anyone help me by telling what the actual size is?

I'm just guessing but they looked to me, when I held the real wallace at a film festival, to be about 4-6mm,

4mm is really small, and i know that wallace is about 9inches tall and 6 inches also look to small on a model of that size. but then when I try 8mm on him, they look too big

6mm is about right i aggree
