Understanding Scales for Die Cast Trucks
Scales are used to designate the size of die cast replicas. They reference the size of the unit compared to a life size car, truck, crane etc.. For instance a 1/50 scale toy truck is one 50th of the size of the real truck. The smaller the second number the closer to real life size, 1/1 scale. Another way to look at it is a 1/25 scale truck is twice as big as a 1/50 scale truck of the same item. We have photos for use as an example of different scale trucks (note: the lengths used in the examples are not the exact lengths for every scale truck, they are for use as a guide only for a visual reference to compare different scale trucks, sizes will vary).
Special note: Some of the descriptions include information describing common trucking terms, for example a 36" or 63" sleeper refers to the real life sleeper bunk size, not the actual inches of the sleeper berth on the replica.
