Model Scales

This section is very basic at the moment. I will be expanding it at a future date.

I have included a scale calculator which will help to find the scale of a model. Some models are not proportionally in scale but this will give a ballpark figure based on vehicle length.

Diecast toys and models come in various scales, the most popular ones being:
1:18 scale - large models often targeted at adults
1:24 scale - very common size sold in toy stores - similar to G scale model trains, which are 1:22.5 scale
1:43 scale - made popular by Dinky and Corgi, popular with collectors - similar to O scale model trains
1:48 scale - aircraft sold in this scale to match plastic model kits - same as O scale model trains
1:50 scale - trucks, buses, construction equipment, promotional models, military vehicles - similar in size to O scale model trains
1:64 scale - Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars are nominally this size, as well as truck and tractor models - same as S scale model trains
1:72 scale - This size has become increasingly popular since Hongwell started producing it in 1997, these are strictly produced in true scale

Scale Calculator

Usage - If you know the fullsize length enter this, ratio 1:1, or if you have another model with a known scale enter that length and scale.

If you have the original length in feet use this first.
