Airport Designs models are available in 1:400 scale and 1:500 scale,
as these are the most popular scales for collecting die-cast airliner
models. We hope to extend the range to other scales in the future.
At 1:400 scale
a Boeing 747 has a wing span of approximately 16cm. At 1:500 scale
the span is around 13cm.
above illustrates the difference between 1:400 and 1:500 scales.
They are both the same model (Hangar Type 4 B1012), built at the
two scales. The 1:500 model is 80% the size of its counterpart in
Most of the
Airport Designs models are available in both scales.
