1. What is the best scale for model ships?
The most popular scale for plastic model ships is 1/350. With a scale this size you’ll have a nice shelf-friendly warship, such as a cruiser or destroyer.
Ultimately the ‘best’ scale is the one you want and that you have room for. A 1/350 scale will take up a good portion of your kitchen table. A 1/700 scale ship is more challenging and may take a long time to assemble. So really it’s a question of how much dedication and space you have.
2. How big is a 1/700 scale ship model?
Ships to a scale of 1/700 are more compact than the 1/350 size. Making them perfect for beginning model shipbuilders. Don’t let the scale size fool you. There is still plenty of rich detail in ships of this size and they can be challenging to assemble. For this reason, 1/700 is sometimes referred to as the “collector’s scale”. At this small scale, 1 foot equals 700 feet.
