Default Size of Piranha? Reply needed soon if possible.

Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone could give me an idea of how long and wide a Piranha is in inches/cm. I plan on proxying one this weekend to test it out and having never seen a real one, have no idea at the size of it.

Thanks,
Matthew

A Piranha is approx 10cm long, and the wings span is also approx 10cm across, I hope this helps

It is just as wide as a Devilfish, and just as wide as it is long. Dunno exactly, too lazy to go check. :P

It's ~5" x 6" long.
Fish is ~6" x 9" for comparison.

According to my tape measure,

4.25 inches(a little less than 11cm)wide.
4.5 inches(a little more than 11 cm)in length, including gun.
About 1.75 inches(a little less than 5cm)tall.

If those are incorrect let me know.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

Check out some pics online and in the codex to help with insperations. I wish I had a piranha but I don't planning on getting three with megaforce. What are you using a pulse carbine or a fusion blaster? Also how many are you making? Show us when you are down it should be cool . Join the campaign do it for the Greater Good, also known as GG.
