Major properties are:
  • a large number of different models is published.
  • many kits are not available as plastic models.
  • the usual scales are: 
    • aircraft - 1/33
    • ships - 1/100, 1/200, 1/250, 1/300
    • buildings - HO, N, 1/120, 1/200, 1/250
    • military vehicles - 1/25
  • card models are inexpensive compared to plastic models.
  • you do not need expensive tools like an airbrush for a good finish.
  • the level of detail is very high.
  • card models are easy to collect in unbuild condition - need not much space :-)
  • building is not easy - you often have only one try...
