    What scale are these?

    Painted these models years ago along with many zillion others ive got stashed around the place. Aint got a clue to the scale though other than i think the Spits are maybe 1/250??. Any idea`s anyone??

    I remember the 2 Fairey Battles starting life as Fulmers that i chopped up abit.. The Phantom tail i painted with a brush with about 2 bristles on it.

    Cool! Must have been fun to paint being so small. Not sure on the scale, I have some Micro Machine aircraft and your models are a bit bigger than my micros. I also have a Matchbox Spitfire made in 1975 which is a bit bigger than your models.

    They look really cool!

    Are they made of white metal by any chance? I seem to remember these being advertised back in the mid eighties in a couple of model magazines. I still have those magazines, so I will dig out the adverts today.

    Nifty painting by the way!

    They look like the type used for war gaming.

    Dificult to say without being able to take measurements. The Me109 is approx 1.08" span which would make it about 1/360 scale.

    The Spitfire looks a bit smaller, I would guess about 1/600 scale.

    You can work it out by dividing the full size wingspan by the model wingspan.

    They are a lot smaller than 1/144, Trouble is i dont have any of the boxes. For the most they are plastic but a few are white metal. Ive about 150 of them
