    Do you know what the percentage was that your printer was printing at?
    The scale of the original model should be on the cover or inside cover.
    With those two figures and a little math you can figure out what you have.

    If I wanted to determine scale, on an unknown model, I'd calculate the wingspan and overall length of the thing, based on the parts, and then scale it based on the real item's dimensions. Determine each scale independently. I'd average the two scales, as I have found that most models, plastic, wood, metal, paper or whatever, are seldom truly in perfect proportions.
