Few of them would fit in airline checked baggage.

You could easily lose a screw, and MAYBE a screwdriver in one, but not a 
scope or technician.

Some words in English, such as "large" are just too subjective.
In photography, I consider 8x10" and 5x7" to be "large".  4x5" (9x12cm) is 
barely "large".  It annoys me when people refer to 2.25 x 3.25" 
(6x9cm) and 3.25 x 4.25" as "large format".  (and it infuriates me when 
people express focal length of lenses in units of "35mm equivalent mm", 
instead of the actual mm. (my 47mm super-angulon vignettes on long 
distance of 4x5, but it damn sure ain't a "longer than 'normal'" focal 

Alas, the general public are going to insist that anyghing bigger than a 
PC is "large scale".
