Plastic Model Kit Scales typically range from 1:24 to 1:100; a 1:24-scale model is 1/24th of the size of the real object. Common scales are 1/24, 1/48, 1/72, and 1/100. Many of the same engineering skills go into producing scale models as into the manufacturing of actual items represented. Model kits fall into approximately five skill levels. Snap-together models provide the pieces with tiny tabs that fit in specially shaped holes. The next three levels are beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The level is described on the box containing the kit, and the kits become increasingly complicated with more steps in assembling and detailing the models. The most advanced kits are the customized kits that provide the model builder with a variety of styles and parts, enabling for the creation of a unique model.
