Nope, you would probably lose.  So, which one is heaviest?

Little guy by almost twice as much. 12.98 vs. 22.11 oz

Hanging rack has to be sturdy.  Will go on the wall.  Might build a 70 degree ramp, the angle these dove from when attacking.

I am assuming pot metal or die cast for the pair of little guys pictured? Even so, I would not honestly thought they would still weigh that much.

As for your scale and its batteries..... Great tip. I have had that happen many times in the past myself. Now I have a rule that if I am not using something for a period of time, I make the habit of removing batteries as soon as I am done with the item, or if I will be using it on and off for a short while, will look into it.

Box says diecast. Great detail down to the pitot tube. But very vulnerable out there on the wing. May be a pitot static tube, prevalent when I was in the Navy.

Yes I was surprised. "Worked last week".  Opened it up and.............. Thankfully most of it was confined to the battery's but one negative terminal spring was corrupted at the base.  Didn't work at first until I dug the interior stuff out and reestablished contact.
