I clicked 30mm but to me the range 25-30mm is one thing. Due to base height and other factors like stance of the miniature you would get different heights in that range for one scale range.
The scale ranges I have found in the market are more like 15mm and 25-30mm for tabletop gaming and then 1:72, 1:48 for the plastic figures (Airfix, Revell etc.) For children toys I would also consider Lego and Playmobil scale.
The poll should probably have included a 15mm-18mm range entry, given this is very popular for cast wargame minis. It's the scale I usually resize my paper minis and models to now. As lightning said, the 25mm-30mm range is virtually the same thing these days, so doesn't really need multiple entries.
In many respects, I'm happy if designers go for 30mm scale minis and models, because they'll almost always scale down to my preferred 15mm without problems.
You might also wish to consider the more popular railway model scales as well (around 20mm scale, but having much more naturalistic human proportions in the figures than many of the gaming minis), since card and paper models have long been part of that hobby, and continue to be so in the world of downloadable PDFs.

I clicked 30mm because the people I game with have a lot of the D&D plastic ones. I also have also scaled Permes and Okumarts minis down to 15mm when I was preparing for certain sessions, like three ships meeting at sea or a big battle that spanned the Piazza San Marco. The last figures I made (and I will soon share) turned out to be more like 32-34mm and I am just going to use them but try to reduce the template a little for the next batch.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
