  • length of :400 and :500 scale

    I don’t feel like doing the math, so can someone measure for me?
    1/400 – a/c type and length
    1/500 – a/c type and length
    Would be great if someone had the same a/c type in each scale.

    747-400 is 231 ft 10 inches. Which is 2782 inches long so:

    1/400 scale: 6.955 inches
    1/500 scale: 5.564 inches

    1/500 sucks and the detail sucks, not to mention they are not worth "Collecting" as many if not all have no tail numbers and have several mistakes. I had a 1/500 and got rid of it.
