Does anyone know the scale of the Viper and Cylon fighters in this game? Are they ~1/200 like Wings of War or more like 1/144 like Hasbro Titanium models? Thanks!

If they are the same scale as the SW ones, they'll be 1/270th.

A Mark II Viper is 27.6 feet long. The miniature provided from my measurement is about 56mm long. So that makes it right about 1/150 scale.

Thresher -

Unfortunately, they look like they are a bit larger than the X-Wing ships.

If you go 3D printing you can get whatever scale you want.

Andrea stated they are 1/160th scale.

Ok, so the Ares models are 1/150 scale by calculation. The Hasbro MkII Vipers are 3.00" long, which calculates out to be 1/110 scale. A delta in scale of ~25%.

Interesting that they are so much larger.

I'll be sticking with the diecast metal ones.

Man I 'wish' I had found the Die Cast BSG when they came out, but family responsibility had all my attention. I did not even know about them until they were DC'd.
Would HAVE got 3 or 4 TOS Galactica's, IIRC (Walmart had them $10 USD ea.) by the time I found them the cheapest I found started around $40 USD by then, now.. Take out a Bank Loan
