SLK,

I think joberg is in the right area for height. I'd say 55" max and 50" minimum.

If you could get the exact size of the parking meter graphic that may help. Tom Southwell may be able to help you there!

There is a wide shot of the 'Syd Mead picture' showing him full length!

I'm sure I've seen set plans on the extra's discs of the pillar behind Syd Mead. If you could determine a height for the diagonal details behind his arm it may help determine a height for the meter also.

The graphic is in Cinefantastique BTW.

You could use his watch dial as a rough measure like Bendzhamin1967 used the kerb stones.

Try lots things and take an average.

Hope that helps.

Colin

Don't know if you already have this photo or if it's of any use?

Does anyone have any other good quality photos of the parking meter? I feel like 3D printing one
