Actually if you don't figure in the vader figure which is oversized the vaders tie comes in at 1/48. I have two of the BCI tie fighters which are 1/48 and build to be in scale with the MPC vaders tie. They use the cockpit grill/glass from the MPC model. I also have the studio scale tie fighter at 1/24 and the BCI are half that size/ 1/2 studio scale. It's just the vader figure that is oversize and throws people off as they measure the kit by the size of the figure.Thanks for this, I didn't know about it! It does look pretty good. And the pilot appears to be about 1/32 scale, about the same as the MPC Vader's TIE. Very cool.
