Model Tanks WW2: All About The HO Scale

The scale is the ratio between the real object, the tank, train or plane, and the model tank, train or plane. So, 1/87 means that a real aircraft with a wingspan of 87 feet makes a model with a wingspan of one foot. Miniature soldiers in miniature wargaming are described based on the average height of a soldier.

The 1/87 (HO) scale is the most popular model scale in the world. The variety of models available in the HO scale makes it ideal for miniature wargaming and accurate model building. The scale was developed to allow for smaller, less expensive models that still have plenty of detail. Get your own WW2 model kits from Small Scale Hobbies today!
