forget about 1/3000. just forget about it.
AA scale IS 1/2400...if you want really small ships then buy 1/3000 and people will think your BB is a small destroyer
AA scale for destroyers is approximately 1/2400, 1" equals 200 feet. On that scale an Iowa-class battleship would be almost 4.5" long, rather than the 2.25" it actually is. Scale for the battleships runs from about 1/3600 for the UK Royal Soveriegn to about 1/4700 for the Iowa. The Yamato is about 1/4200 and the Bismarck is about 1/4300. The scale for the aircraft carriers ranges from the Wasp at about 1/3500 to the Shinano at about 1/4200, as all of the carriers are the same length, 2.5". The two cruisers are about 1/3700 scale. The subs range from the German Type VIIC at about 1/1400 to the Japanese I-15 class at about 1/2400.
If you buy 1/3000 scale ships, which is 1" equals 250 feet, an Iowa will run about 3.5 inches, considerably larger than the destroyers in the game.
That appears to make sense from the few pieces I've ordered to compare size and quality.
What is the difference between 1/2400 and 1/3000 in inches? Looks like the 1/2400 is an USA scale (based in ft/in). Is the 1/3000 the European scale based in meters?
Side by side, would a 1/2400 piece actually be 20% smaller than a 1/3000 scale piece?
A 1/3000 scale ship will actually be about 20% smaller than a 1/2400 scale ship.
I will post the scales for the aircraft once I finish measuring them.
