What are Scale Models?

    A scale model is simply a three-dimensional, proportional replica of a physical object. The "Scale" of a model usually is expressed as a fraction of its full-size counterpart.

    For example: a 1/6 scale figure of a 6' person would be 1' tall. And the proportions of that subject would be reproduced faithfully, head to foot. Or, to put it in modeling terms: it would take 72 1/72 scale F-16 Falcons end-to-end to equal the length of the real thing.
    Modeling became serious during World War II when "recognition" or "ID" models, mostly in 1/72 scale, helped train military personnel to tell friend from foe. By the end of the war, the demand for aircraft, ship and tank models had mushroomed into the general public conscientiousness.
