I'd need information about the dimensions of the original, full size buildings before I could give a meaningful answer....

I assume your talking about the buildings and not the Coke can?

Dimensions

The first photograph is a model of the Athens Parthenon. I assume that the scale of the second photo, the Notre Dame, is identical.

The actual temple is 69.5 m (width) x 30.9 m (depth) x 13.72 m (height)
That would be 228 ft (width) x 101 ft (depth) x 45 ft (height)

The model is 22.35" (width) x 14.5" (depth) x 6.6" (height)

Yeah, I'm not talking about the coke can lol

Thank you kindly for you help.

What publisher is this? It should give a scale someplace in the instructions or
the cover sheet. If it is a download check the site you downloaded it from
for scale information....Ron

There is no publisher, they're hand crafted.

Using the dimension given:
width is 1/122 scale
depth is 1/84 scale
height is 1/82 scale

I tried to calculate it based on the dimensions, but I got 3 different scales, it might not be totally accurate scalewise...

for the length i got about 1/122, and near 1/82-3ish for the height and width... not sure if its my calculations, or the model thats off though... Probably he was going for about 1/100 ish scale when it was built...

EDIT: LOL SCE you posted while I was typing... but came to the same scales, so that makes me feel better

Thank you kindly for you help.

Based on the width the temple is about 1:120 scale. Your assumption that the Notre Dame model is the same, may or may not be a correct one....
