1/72 in perspective

When I first started doing 1/72 planes for gaming I had in mind Great War.  My first couple of attempts were a failure.  I’m back at it with a Nieuport 17.  It’s a cute little kit, with the operative word being little.  Those were seriously tiny planes.  At the same time I’m working on a 1/72 F-4 phantom.  I’m amusing myself with some size comparison photos.  The Nieuport compared to just the nose and cockpit of the F-4:

It’s not much bigger if you turn it to take in the lower wingspan:

Then to fully get the size comparison, I’ve laid the rest of the phantom down:
