Im new to all things plastic, my dilemma is i have an revell a400m in 1/72 and contemplating a diaroma coffee table.
For me to add other aircraft, vehicle, buildings ect would i have to use the same scale.
As you can imagine the a400m is quite large as where a 1/72 build would be relatively small .
Any help would be much appreciated.
Yes, the A400 at 1/72 is quite large -over 60cm- but I am afraid I do not understand your question… What do you need?
If you want to display the plane on the tarmac then you should use items that are also 1/72. If you want to display the plane in flight, then your items should be smaller scale to show the aircraft in the air, so 1/350 or 1/700 gives you the visual that the plane is in the air.
Something like this Forced perspective Doolittle raid diorama - December 2012 - FineScale Modeler - Essential magazine for scale model builders, model kit reviews, how-to scale modeling, and scale modeling products
Course it’s your project and you can do as you want.
Hi ,as for figures and buildings do i need the same scale of 1/72.
For an raf air base scene
Yes, you need everything at the same scale, otherwise it would look weird…
