Basically, the scale indicates how small a model is reduced in relation to the size of the original. The two-year figures are a ratio: they indicate whether units on the actual object are equal to one unit on the model. If a model was 1:1 scale, this means that one foot on the model is planed to one foot on the original, so in this case the model would be full-size. The further the second number is from 1, the smaller the ready-to-assemble model is compared to the original. In other words, assuming your 1:10 scale model is one foot long, the actual model is ten feet long. Many of the model categories have a range of common scales that make the type of model manageable for the average citizen, both in terms of enriching and displaying it. For model cars, the scale with the most diarrhea is 1:24; for military models, 1:35 and why not 1:48; for airplanes, 1:32, 1:48 or 1:72. Super large commercial airplanes are rarely seen at 1:144, however this is exceptional with smaller airplanes. Model ships are unique because the originals are quite big. The most common scales are 1:72, 1:350 and 1:720, but often find strange scales in between.
