I was looking at some of the nifty Kyo MSG weapons that I know are meant for Frame Arms models but I have seen people use them on Gundam too.
I am just wondering how they compare, scale-wise, to Armored Core 1/72 model kits? Too big? Too Small?
Anyone have pics of one mounted on an AC?

They're about the right size for Armored Core as well. (The original MSG weapons were meant to specifically supplement Kotobukiya's Armored Core line, if I remember correctly.) Armored Core and Frame Arms are in different scales, but the model heights are similar.

Average Armored Core height: 10-12m
Koto's AC scale: 1/72
Model height: 14-16cm

Average Frame Arms height: 14-16m
Koto's FA scale: 1/100
Model height: 14-16cm

So yeah, there you go. I imagine the similarity in model height was (smartly) intentional on Koto's part. (For comparison, 1/144 and 1/100 Gundam tends to be around 12.5 and 18cm tall, respectively.)
