What scale is this Comac ARJ21?
These photos are from Ebay, link at the bottom of this post.
The listing says it’s 20cm, 1:400. At 1:400, 20cm would make it larger than a 777. I told the seller that a 1:400 model would be about 8cm, and that a 20cm model would be about 1:165 and asked him which was correct. I suspect that his English isn’t as good as mine as he replied ‘it’s 1:400 20cm’.
Looking at the stand (which looks common to several low-quality Chinese 16cm 747s available on Ebay), I would guess that it’s 20cm. What do you think? If that’s the case I shall get the Panda Models 1:400 version — but of course it's twice the price!
I’ve already got a 1:200 Comac C919, manufacturer unknown, which is the same size as my A320 but with inferior engine detailing and no landing gear. I wouldn’t mind a 1:200 ARJ21 but prefer 1:400s mainly due to space limitations, but I don’t like random sizes like 1:165 as it wouldn’t fit in with any of my other models. Thank you.
