Default When drawing out your own tarmac...

If it's a modern air base, how large should the squares be drawn out for 1/48?

1/72?
1/144?


I've got the materials to start working on this, but wasn't sure how large the squares on it should be.

Thanks!

jb

1/1 = 12'x12'
1/48 = 3"x3"
1/72 = 2"x2"
1/144 = 1"x1"
1/32 = 4.5"x4.5" (someone will ask later)

Interesting - the "squares" of concrete at Nellis work out to be something like 20'...?
