1/700 gives the junkers Ju 52 a 1.6 inch wingspan. Slightly larger than the standard Axis & Allies airplane scale (the A&A bomber has a wingspan of 1.5 inches).

If you assume the A&A bomber is a B-17, then the miniature scale is:

Real life B17 wingspan = 103 ft 9 in = 1245 in
A&A plastic bomber piece wingspan = 1.5 in
1245 in / 1.5 in = 830

Therefore, the A&A aircraft scale is 1/830.

1/700 is fairly close.

1/700 is fairly close.

The measurements you made are incorrect. Therefore, so are your calculations.

B17 wingspan = 31.62m
A&A B17 wingspan = 47mm
31.62/.047 = 672

A&A B17 aircraft scale is 1/672

Furthermore, the scales on the A&A pieces are inconsistent. They vary from piece to piece.

Ah, I see where the problem lies. I was using measurements from the original generic A&A bomber piece (which is 38mm in width).

And yes, I was aware that the pieces are all different scales. I assume that you'd want the transport plane to scale up against the bombers.

Regardless, my final conclusion that 1/700 scale is fairly close is still valid and correct.

I'm afraid your attempt to embarrass and discredit me has failed smiley.

I neither tried to embarrass nor discredit you. I was just pointing out the error you made. Don't be so touchy. We all make mistakes.

1/700 scale is the perfect scale for bombers and transport planes.
