  • @oldsalty:

    Warweb is offering 40% off their Old Glory miniatures infantry packs (50 pieces) which are the same as Skytrex (Old Glory is the USA distributed name for Skytrex).  Their sale price is $8.40 per pack.  Can’t beat that price.  Unfortunately, they don’t carry all of Skytrex products.

    Hey OldSalty – did your infantry every arrive?  I jumped on this bandwagon around the 13 Aug, but haven’t seen anything yet vs. GHQ that got it here within a week.



  • Nada.  They said it could take several weeks.  Apparently they don’t have them in stock and their coming from across the pond.  My C-in-C tanks got here less than a week.



  • The approximate scale of the pieces in A&A is as follows.

    BB and CV, 1/4800
    DD and Transports, 1/2400
    Subs, about 1/1800
    Fighters, 1/360
    Bombers, 1/600 to 1/720
    Infantry, 1/72 or 76
    Armor, 1/285 or so
    Artillery, not sure, varies quite a bit.  They appear to make the artillery pieces to be about the same size.

    It would appear that the intent is to make they easier to hold while keeping them all about the same size.



  • 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?


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    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



  • IL:

    Where do you suggest to get national decals for the armor and planes.  I don’t want to draw them on.


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    only for tanks and planes, from GHQ… they don’t make decals for 1/2400 ships

    look up www.brookhursthobbies.com and call them and tell them what you have and they will mail them out.

    tell them you got 1/285 micro armor and 1/700 scale planes and need decals.

    you can also buy them from www.scalespecialties.com  ask for norm or pen

    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.

    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.

    Thats a complete waste of time…. The only scales for small inexpensive metal ships THAT IS ACTUALLY CURRENTLY IN PRODUCTION IS 1/2400 AND 1/3000…SO THE ONLY REALISTIC OPTION IS TO BUY 1/2400 SCALE WHICH ARE OFFERED FROM NAVWAR AND SKYTREX, WHILE 1/3000 SCALE IS TOO LARGE.

    The scales are the same regardless representing objects 1/3000 or 1/2400 times smaller than original. Its not a Metric vs. English system.

    Axis and allies uses 1/700 scale planes and 1/285 armor and 15 MM infantry ( or to convert you use HO 1/87 plastic or 1/72). These are the scales your looking for and i already posted the order sheet in another thread.
