Sounds like a question for aerohead. I Googled "wind tunnel dimension" and found these :

9x7 Supersonic Wind Tunnel


Wind Tunnel 2005


Question: What would the dimensions of a wind tunnel be a 1/24 scale? The reason I ask is that the most common scale for plastic model cars is 1/24 scale. Therefore, you would have a large choice of "accurate" shapes to work from. Would the air speed have to be scaled to match? If yes, then it would have to be like this :

Code:
1/1 MPH   1/24 MPH
    24         1.000
    35         1.458
    45         1.875
    48         2.000
    55         2.292
    65         2.708
    72         3.000
    75         3.125
Ha ha, you'd need sewing string to do tuft tests, .
