The WCL of a model should ideally be the same as that of it's full-size equivalent if scale flight performance is to be achieved. Very high power military aircraft are very difficult to model at scale speed, therefore most scale modellers prefer to build fighter planes on the light side at about half the scale weight and half the scale power.
