Great built Matt! Would you say it is 20mm scale or smaller?

1/72 is 20 mm so you could say yes

Revell scales are a mess on the Star Wars stuff. I've submitted a complaint because I bought some of their 1:110 TIE Fighters and they're closer to 1:72 than 1:110.

Great paint job though.

That is why I asked. There is a pilot in there and one could judge the scale by the size of the miniature. Scales on the boxes are humbug.

It is in between 1/80th and 1/76th so suitable for 15mm gaming, the Sith infiltrator however is closer to 10mm.

It would be good if they scaled them all the same.......

Thanks Matt. I expected this to be another thing that doesn't match a gaming scale...

Actually, it is scaled nearer to 1:270, as it is perfectly sized for use in X-Wing (when you take the ship's size given by Wookipedia as truth that is ::) ).

And I know, because I use one in that capacity ;)
