How to choose the scale of a model?

Maquettism is a hobby that allows you to develop creativity, patience and interest in history. It is important to know that the scales represent the size of the model. When you create your own miniature models, it is possible to reproduce a model at the desired scale. This is one of the biggest advantages of modeling, and not the least.

However, some scales are necessary for themselves depending on the model to be reproduced in miniature. If you want to build original models with large dimensions such as large ships or a city, you must opt for large scales. Nevertheless, for original models with smaller dimensions, it is necessary to opt for small scales.

Apart from the reasons mentioned above, other criteria are involved in the choice of scale, including location. Indeed, a large space allows to place the model correctly and to multiply the details to be added.

How to choose between a 1/72 and 1/76 scale model?

A 1:72 scale means that the size of the model is 72 times smaller than that of the actual object. In other words, if the original object has a dimension of 1440 centimeters, a 1/72 model is 20 centimeters long.

In addition to 1/76 models, 1/72 models are the most offered on the RC modeling market. Thus, you will have more choice by opting for the 1/72 scale, especially if you have a preference for a particular miniature model.
