1:48 Scale Model Airplanes Airplanes to build.

1/48 Scale Models (also written as 1:48 scale and commonly called quarter scale) means that the finished model will be 1/48 the size of the original aircraft. So to put this into perspective if the life size object was say 4 feet long (48 inches), the scale model would be 1 inch long.

Next to 1:72 scale, 1/48 scale models are the second most popular scale to work in because you can achieve a greater level of detail without the finished project being too big to store or display.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from AMS (Advanced Modeler Syndrome) the 1/48 scale model aircraft kit will allow you to add as much or little detail as you want.

What are 1:48 Scale Model Airplanes?

1:48 scale is popular among modelers both as diecast models, plastic models made from kits, and construction toys. It is especially popular with manufacturers of model airplanes and model trains (where it is known as O scale). 1:48 is also the most popular scale among Lego enthusiasts since it is approximately the scale of the minifig (1.5 inches: 6 feet).
It is similar in size to 1:50 scale and 1:43 scale which are very popular for diecast vehicles.
Recently, Tamiya has begun to manufacture a line of military ground vehicle models in 1:48 in addition to their more traditional 1:35 scale line. This has been seen as an attempt to break into a new market since the stiff competition in the larger scale[citation needed].
This is the traditional scale for Admiralty Board style models [1] and Shipyard builders models.
