WiiModels were pretty much dead on. :)

So of course, the person crazy enough to attempt actual sized models of the Wii shortly after E3 would get a Wii at launch, and then I thought to see how my models compared.

I had not seen any accurate Wii dimension measurements at the time I built these models, so I said “OK, the disc is 12cm, I’ll use that to figure out the size of the front of the system, and then rescale the patent drawings to match what I find, and use those measurements to make my models.

A lot of people thought my models wouldn’t be accurate, and I got the typical, “It’s not right because Nintendo hasn’t released official measurements!” or something along those lines. Well, here are some pics of my new Wii and my WiiModels made several months ago:

Real White Wii w/ Gloss Black WiiModel:

Vertical Wii Front w/ Vertical WiiModel Front (height comparison):

Top of WiiModel w/ Top of Wii (length comparison):

Horizontal Wii Front w/ Horizontal WiiModel Front (thickness comparison, no flash):
