There were approximately 30 aircraft models, 6 ships and 11 army models.
The scale for aircrafts was 1/33,33, the scale for ships was 1/200, the scale for army items (tanks etc.) was 1/20.
Sometime after the war some of these they were (more or less legally) reproduced and are now occasionally found on internet sites...
Read more about it in the article by Axel Huppers, pages 55-58 in: Zur Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus, Heft 1, ed. by Arbeitskreis Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus. - Hamburg: Scheuer & Strüver 2001.
Kind regards -
there were a couple of these models around a few years ago on some sites
