They're seriously using FWs imperil pilot as their scale comparison model!
That is cheeky. Yeah, these are just obvious ripoffs, with all the same design elements than the GW ones. I can't really say I approve this sort of thing. I just wish people who do third party things for GW games would put more of their own aesthetic spin on things.
I'm sure it is possible to make 28mm scale anachronistic scifi planes without copying the GW style so obviously.

Some scales are given as a ratio, variously written as either a ratio i. The number on the right of the pair indicates how many units inches or centimeters on the original are equivalent to one unit on the replica. For example, with a scale miniature, if the miniature is 1" long, then the original was " in length. Most people usually think of this as being the height of an average man i.
According to some experts but not all"traditional" figure heights are measured to eye level, since measuring to the top of the head is impractical for figures wearing headgear as many military figures do. Therefore, when a manufacturer says his figures are for instance 25mm scale, he might mean "25mm to top of the head" or "25mm to eye level.
Just to confuse things further, manufacturers have been slowly making their figures a bit larger in recent years. The extra size gives more room for details, so that a "large 15mm" figure often looks sharper than an "classic 15mm" figure - and that's because it's not actually a 15mm figure, but often an 18mm figure!
The same is true with 25mm figures, as represented by the miniatures put out by Games Workshop as well as by Reaper 's "heroic" 25mm figures both of which measure closer to 28mm in scale. As a final note, even figures which ostensibly are in the same scale may differ considerably in body build, head size, and general sculpting style - even when made by the same manufacturer! For instance, older figures vs.
Styles may differ considerably, as some manufacturers see their goal as to make scale replicas, while others concentrate on making "gaming pieces" which are inexpensive, durable, or easy to paint.
Plastic figures may be sculpted in a thinner style than metal figures. Therefore, if you are concerned whether you can mix figures from different product lines or companies and have them look appropriate, you may first want to order samples from the manufacturer.
Also used for starships. Recommended for those who want to depict large, epic battles in a limited table space, or who have less time for painting. Historical and science fiction. Several ranges of plastic ships are also available in this scale. Aircraft and space fighter miniatures are also available in this scale. Miniatures in this scale have the advantage of being inexpensive. The small size also means there is less visible detail to paint. In this scale it is possible to put armies on the tabletop which give the impression of masses of infantry.
Figures available for fantasy, historical, and science fiction. Some WWII era recognition models are made in this scale. Some think this will be the popular scale of the future, larger enough to show detail but small enough to fit a large army on a tabletop. Also used for fantasy, science fiction, and 20th Century "skirmish-level" games. Modern military vehicles also come in this scale, in metal and plastic.
Several popular lines of pre- assembled and painted armored vehicles are available in this scale. Also used for science fiction. Plastic miniatures and kits are available in this scale for aircraft, ground vehicles, and soldiers. Excellent scale for display games.
