1:64th. How do they compare with much more common 1:72nd?

I note that according to the TMP Old Reference Corner, 1/64 scale is a match for "true" 25mm figures. So at the very least, the scale might be visibly closer in scale to 25-28mm figures (the latter are actually 1/58) than 1/72 models would be.

I have no experience with the actual models in the article, but I suspect that's the intent of the listed scale size.

The obvious idea would be to paint one in Richthofen's colors as it was the first plane he had painted all red.

HI Guys: 1/64th scale somewhat larger than 1/72nd scale. In 1/72nd scale a 6 foot man (72 inches) or 1 inch high. In 1/64th scale a 6 foot man would be 1.1 inches high this corresponds to 28mm wargame scale. Since I game in this scale I wanted some aircraft in that scale. This 1/64th scale Fokker D-VII's wing span is 5.5 inches the 1/72nd D-VII would have a 4.9 inch wing span. So there is a 1.6 inch difference. This kit has a very nice feel to it and looks very substantial without being out of scale.

"The last and finest…"

With advertising it as the "last" German plane, I kind of doubt their historical diligence. Plenty of newer designs around, some of whom even reached the Front. Producers are, among others, Pfalz, Fokker (DVIII) or Junkers.

@Sargonarhes
Richthofen never got a DVII he died before they reached the front. You probably mean the Dr1.

1:64 is usually considered the scale for 25mm, though it will work for 28mm on the realistic end.

Kits can be ordered preprinted on card stock. or as a pdf. You can print the pdf as any scale you like.

5.5" – 4.9" = 0.6"
