Model Planes Lenths' And Mathicals

Sat Jun 12, 2004 7:24 pm

Hi would anyone would tell me what is the difference of a 2400mm model plastic plane that should be 1:250
and a 1:200 Lufthansa model plastic plane...

We have a fiew around such as a qantas model plane that is 2400mm model i think and we own a 1:400 Scale witch is a small one... i put them together and i am wondering how many inches is it with a 2400mm model and a 1:200 Scale British Airways A319 been next together... as i dont no much about mathematics and how large that is.... if anyone out there could help me with something such as a writing pen to compare how large it is next to them then that would be great im sure the 1:400 scale is pretty much the same sizes of a normal writing pen correct?
and all i need to know how long without the (cm) but some ather format for the 1:200 scales model plane and the 2400mm

any ideas and formats to make it easier for me would be fantastic or bahaps a pic of a model with a pen next to it or some kind.

all sugestions are welcome


thanks  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

to make it easier for me behaps... if its a Plane measures 27cm from nose to tail, with wingspan of 24cm what scale would that be a 1:200? or a small model plane?

thanks again

It would depend what the model was of - depending on if it's a C-172 or A380 the scale is goin to be vastly different.

well for a sample i have a plane of B767-300 DESK DISPLAY MODEL
but because im buying a nother one it is 1:200 Scale British Airways A319
and a 2400mm should be 1:250 scale
would this mean that its no differenta that much or if the number is lower the greater the model plane is? or would this mean the lower scale number the smaller the model is right?

just i dont want to buy a small model plane such as a 1:500 coz they are the same lenth of a normal pen correct?
