How to recognize the dimensions and size of various scales of models produced in the world By looking at the image below, you can understand the dimensions of each scale and choose according to your taste.
All Manufacture create models at a range of scales. For those of you unfamiliar with the way the system works, these scales represent the ratio between the size of a model and its full size counterpart. Here are the scales we make with the average lengths of the model alongside. Put simply, the bigger the number to the right of the colon, the smaller the model car:
Sculpts: 11 cm (4 inches) long
1:18 – 25 cm (10 in) long
1:12 – 38 cm (15 in) long
1:8 – 60 cm (24 in) long
1:5 – 92 cm (36 in) long
1:4 – 120 cm (48 in) long
Our primary focus is on collections at 1:18 and 1:8 scales. It’s at those scales we create the majority of our model range, with just a few examples at the other scales. Bespoke models are only available at the bigger 1:8 scale and we tend to build one-offs at the even bigger 1:5 or 1:4.
