The 1/57 isn't the pocket kit, it is the standard easy kit (they really make everything difficult by calling them all "easy kits")nicholassagan wrote:Manufacturer list:
Revell: X-Wing Pocket Kit,

And the X-wing pocket kit is more like 1/110
Unfortunately it seems that various people/manufactures can't agree on scales for the same subjects simply because it depends on which source you use to determine the "real world size"
While Fine Molds for example is widely accepted as 1/72, many models are in fact way too small for 1/72 assuming the studio models were 1/24 so you wind up with a conudrum of having two models that actually look to be close to the same size wind up with wildly different scales. Or in cases like the Revell Tie Fighter, they list it as 1/57 on their web site, but it has a figure that is clearly in the 1/40 ish range. The 1/57 is acutally more accurate if scaling down from a 1/24 studio model, but the 1/41 is actually more accurate if scaling up from a "1/72" Fine Molds tie.
At any rate, it's enough to drive you nuts trying to figure out things, so I instead take this approach
If we accept that Fine Molds is the standard of measurement for 1/72 and they are accurately scaled, then upscaling/downscaling from there.
This leads to the following
Darth Vader's Tie pocket kit 1/79 (although based on 1 /24 scale for the studio scale model, it is more like 1/90).
Same with the Tie Interceptor is pretty much in the same boat about 1/79 (or 1/90 based on 1 1/24 studio model)
Darth Vader's Tie Easy Kit 1/32 (although it is a just hair smaller than the old AMT one which was accepted to be 1/36 I believe)
X-Wing Easy Kit (2013 large version) 1/30
X-Wing Easy Kit 1/57
X-Wing Easy Pocket Kit 1/110
Tie Fighter Easy Kit 1/41
Tie Fighter Pocket Kit 1/63
Y-Wing 1/72 (main difference is just in the length of the engines, everything else is pretty much the same size, so if go go on total length it is much different, but if you go on cockpit, fuselage, pilot and droid sizes it is "1/72")
Revell Pocket Kit Snowspeeder around 1/57 to 1/65 when scaled down from a 1/72 Retro Kit Snowspeeder. I'll have to get some more accurate measurements since I don't have them both in front of me
Revell Republic Gunship Clone Wars version 1/72 (or 1/74 according to Revell)
Revell Arc-170 Easy Kit - I'm guessing around 1/57 to 1/65 or so based on the pilot figures, but could even be closer to 1/68 for the ship. Revell says it is 1/48 on their website, but that just seems way too big. I think it is close enough to 1/72 rather than 1/48 to display it with my 1/72 stuff. Pilot figures are pretty close in size the the Eta Starfighters though, so it could be closer to 1/58 range
Revell Arc-170 Easy Pocket Kit - I can't confirm since I don't have it, but it is supposedly pretty darn close to 1/144
Revell AT-AT - depending on which AT-AT size you subscribe to it has been scaled anywhere between 1/53 to 1/72. I feel comfortable enough thinking of it as 1/72, although it is probably closest to 1/67 or so. It sizes nciely enough to display alongsider the Revell pocket Snowspeeder, the Diagostini die cast one, or the retro kit 1/72 version or any other vehicles in the 1/60 ish to 1/72 ish range
Revell Anakin and Obi-Wan Jedi Eta Starfighters. These are somewhere around 1/55 to 1/63 based on the figures. I'd have to get some more accurate measurements and compare them in size to the Studio Starforge 1/72 Eta Starfighters
I believe the regular Easy kits versions of these are pretty much considered to be close to 1/24, but I can't confirm since I don't have them
While not kits, these diecasts can be used to fill in some voids
The Titanium Collection Tri-fighter droid seems to be 1/72. The Eta Starfighter in the same set is just a bit smaller than the 1/72 Studio Starforge one. I'd say it's probably like 1/76 ish
The old Kenner twin cloud car is nearly the same size as the Retro SF 1/72 cloud car. The figures inside look spot on for 1/72, but the vehicle is a little bigger. Maybe more like 1/70
Diagostini Snow Speeder. Almost the identical in size to the RetroSF 1/72 one. It might be a little closer to 1/70 though
