One of the less common plastic model scales is 1/100. I am fascinated by this scale since the 1970s. Tamiya, Heller, Revell, Takara, and VEB Plasticart are just some of the companies that offer (or once offered) aircraft kits in 1/100 scale. I will be featuring my 1/100 scale builds on this page.

(above) Here you can get a size comparison between the F-104 and a small car in 1/100 scale. The car is an Alfa-Romeo by Kyosho in 1/100 scale and it was a promotional give away with bottles of Coca-Cola in Japan several years ago.
