Built model sizes

edited June 2020 in Collecting
The recent 'Storage Solutions' series has spurred me into action to sort out my own displays.  Trouble is I have a lot of Technical sets (and a few Ideas and Expert Creator) from the 70s onward broken down in storage boxes and no idea how big they are when built.
I'm trying to work out which ones I can display so that I can then build them for the display cabinets.  I'm pretty sure some are just too big and I certainly can't fit them all in.
Any ideas of a database that contains built dimensions?  I can only find box size...

    I'm not sure if it is possible to define the built size for a number of sets, especially where there are multiple builds that combine together to make a scene as these days the set space is normally not defined by a baseplate (aside from modulars or similar sets). For single vehicles rough dimensions are often stated in reviews or in the lego description.

    You could try looking at the picture of the built set and count studs. This should give you a relative idea of their size.

    Or build them and measure them!

    @CCC & @oldtodd33 - Great ideas.  I think a combo of building the one's I really like and stud counting any secondary sets should do it.

    For current sets, look at Lego’s catalogs and press releases. They often state the size, especially for larger models.
