Star Wars Model Kits scale list

Unlike most of the aforementioned toys and collectibles, models come unassembled and usually unpainted. These require a good amount of time if you want to get a good looking model. Although, they are easier than creating a scratch-built or kit-bashed model. There aren’t many companies offering Star Wars models as licensing is a tricky issue. However, I’ll give you a rundown of the most common.

Injection-mold plastic:

  • Revell – pre-painted, snap together, often simplified detail, and usually come with rubbery figures
  • Revell of Germany – only released the Venator Star Destroyer: great detail, unpainted, waterslide decals
  • MPC or AMT or AMT/Ertl – old kits from late 70’s and early 80’s (later reissued): OK detail, unpainted, decals (many used in studio scale models)
  • Fine Molds – released in the mid-2000s: great detail, unpainted, waterslide decals, figures
  • Bandai replaced Fine Molds in 2014: snap-kits, great fit and detail, figures, decals & stickers (US reissues have no standing figures)

Resin:

  • JPG Castings – high-quality kits: great detail, includes decals, lots of diorama pieces, wide variety
  • SMT – early 2000’s: great kits, interesting subjects, but hard to find now
  • Zarkus – unique kits with great detail, somewhat hard to find
  • Anigrand – unique subjects & capital ships: great detail, extra smaller kits packaged alongside, decals, clear canopies...very hard to find how
  • Scale Solutions – unique offerings, available online
  • Odyssey Slipways – small kits, often sold as accessories to larger ships

Notes on Estimated Sizes

AT-AA - based on the Force Commander intro video and assuming it's 1/270. It's at most half the length of an AT-AT.

AT-TE - based on stills from AotC looking at Clone height and LAAT Dropship size

Liberator Cruiser - sources claim it's small, but carries 72 starfighters. 600 meters sets it at the same size as the Gladiator Star Destroyer and makes it fit most Armada ships.

MC19 Light Freighter - I just picked a number, no idea how big it is.

TIE Phantom - based on assuming FFG version is 1/270

    • Hmm. Yeah, it should be the same model. I took the 9.2 from another source, so it’s quite possible it’s off. Is the one you have exactly 10cm?

      • Yes, its actually the latest video I did on my YT channel. Though I wouldnt call it a review, I did take a closer look at the model and the parts…in fact now that I look at the box again, there is a measurement of 92mm but it actually doesnt refer to any specific part measured. Im guessing thats where the 9.2cm comes from.

        • Ah, that’s probably where I got the measurement. You wouldn’t happen to have some calipers that you can measure the diameter of the viewport?

  1. Unfortunately no. Best thing I have is one of those stainless steel rulers. I measured the part diameter of the viewport clear piece and it comes to 2.3 cm. but I also measured the outline of that viewport on the cockpit ball and it came to 2.2cm.
    I got to say that this is a great site you got going here and its really helpful. You should look at a few of the hasbro vehicles. The modern slave 1 is just about right for 1/48 from what I remember.

    • Thanks man for the comments. I hope there’s a little something somewhere one here that can help modelers, gamers, and collectors. I try to keep up with Star Wars toys, but it can be expensive, so I often just get the small scale stuff. But you are right, a lot of the bigger toys are great models with just a little work.

  2. Hello! I wanted to let you I have really enjoyed this site so far! The scaling of different vehicles has helped me greatly in my model career so far. I could not find the scale for the Star Destroyer model from MPC/ERTL (1989), my very simple math has it about 1/4160. Star destroyer length 5,200 ft – 62,400 inches (wookipedia reference) and the model is 15″ long. Any thoughts?

    • Thanks man. Glad the site is helping you. I’ve been told the MPC kit is around 1/4200. If I calculate correctly, 15 inches is 38.1 cm and divide that by 1600 m. But at that scale, 1 mm up or down could alter it by quite a bit. Best!!

    • Yeah. Luckily, the U-wing is close to being in scale with some Micro Machine figures. And they are still decent models, just not Bandai.

  3. Question about the Y-Wing: The Star Wars site says its 23.4 meters and the Wookieepedia sight says the same thing, but also gives a measurement of 16.24 meters. Which one is actually canon?

    • Short answer, 16.24 m is canon for the basic Y-wing. The larger size is for the Clone Wars variant. The problem stems from the Databank considering the 2 versions to be the same length at 23.4 meters. But if you look at screenshots, they aren’t the same size. Luckily, the Rogue One Visual Guide corrects the Y-wing to the 16.24 m size.

    • You may be thinking of the larger version, which I think is close to 1/83. The pocket kit I have came in a small box. But also, the canon length changed for the ARC-170, which changes a lot of the scales listed on the box. Plus, I never know if the length includes the rear cannons or not (why I rely on width). So yeah…it’s very muddy. If it looks close enough, it probably is. Cheers!

  4. Hello Jonathan. Just a heads up but the TIE interceptor has a new length listed. It shows up on Wookieepedia via a wood model kit book (2016), but still listed at 9.6 meters on the official Star Wars site database.

    • Oh wow, 11.45m for the Interceptor. That’s very odd. And they upped Vader’s TIE to 11.05 meters. I think I’ll leave what I have currently, but I’ll make note of these. That just seems way too big. Thanks though!

  5. Hello, I have two revell models, Advanced Tie Fighter (17cm width) and Tie Fighter (15 cm width) that not appears on the chart
