it means it's 1/100 the size of how big the real thing would be. So if the real Gundamn is supposed to be 100 feet tall, the model would only be 1 foot tall.

Scales are ratios of measures in like units: 1/72 is 1 inch on the model = 72 inches on the fullsized original. 1/100 scale is 1 inch of the model is equal to 100 inches on the full sized original. 1 inch on your gundam model would equal a little over 8 feet on the original. If your model measures 6 inches high, the original would be over 48 feet tall.
Knowing this, you should be able to figure out why a gundam model kit at 1/144 scale has less detail than a 1/100 scale gundam kit. I'll give you a hint. They have to cram more feet of detail into 1 inch on the model.

thats the ratio to actual size i believe, like saying 1/100 is 1 1hundredth of the actual size.
Did you see the lifesize gundam statue they built in japan?? It's gd awesome, and it lights up at night as well! Do a google search for it, i'm sure you'll find it!

If you took that 1/100 and added 99 more onehundreth's, you'd get the original size of the mecha.
So 1/100 is 1% of the original size.

That's its replication size. The closer it is to 1/1 the more life size and realistic it would be.
