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

A-wing - based on sizing pilot to cockpit size from RotJ stills

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

TIE variants - based on standardized canopy diameter, see TIE page

TIE Phantom - based on assuming the FFG model 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!
