1/144 is smaller than 1/72

 

The higher the second number is, the smaller the kit.

The length and height are dependent on the size of the modeling subject.

 

1/72 is a scale of about 3/16"=1', so 1/144 would be about 3/32"=1'; or half the size of 1/72.

 

A B-52 in 1/144 would be much larger than a P-51 Mustang, but still smaller scale-wise than a 1/72 model.

Dick has 1/2 of an apple. Jane has 1/4 of the apple. Who has the bigger piece?

A 1/144 model will be half the size of a 1/72 in all dimensions.

 

SO a 1/72 B-25 will have a wing span of 11 1/4 inches

In 1/144 it will be 5.625 inches.

 

In 1/32 it will be 25.3 inches

In 1/48 it will be16.8 inches.

 

As Bob pointed out above, the smaller the denominator, the larger the model.

 

And that's why I build 1/144. Because my B-52 is only 15 inch wing span.
