Potts Family, Truly, and Chitty

The small figures for SEG's 1/18 scale Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car. The figures look totally out of scale with the car, but the math seems to work out for the figures to be 1:18 scale. They just look like miniature people next to the car.

 

I think the problem is that the Chitty car is not truly 1/18 scale - it's too large to be 1:18. The toy is 14 inches long which would translate to 21 feet long for the real car, which is actually only 17 and half feet long. The dog in particular looks like a puppy when in the car - he is actually a full grown dog in the film.

 

Truly and Jemima have actual bodies under their dresses (legs and hips)...but no underclothes. It's kinda of funny looking.
