Reference Information for slot and static modellers

 

Who made what in 1/32nd Scale

British cars from the mid 50s to mid 70s - Ford

If you don't see the car you are interested in it may be because I have forgotten it or don't know about it! It's not possible to list all the variations of each car so I have put a heading of the car type and put the variations I know to exist. If a particular variation is not listed then I do not know of a model of it. If you know of one let me know. Following the car type will be the name of the manufacturer of the model followed by a code to say what type of model it is then a suffix to give an indication of availabilty, either "O" for obsolete (and therefore probably hard to find) or "C" for current (or very recent production).

 

Where a product is current or recent production clicking on the manufacturers name will take you to the manufacturers or similar site for more information (Not available for all models)

All of these models are roughly 1/32nd scale although it should be noted that many Scalextric etc cars are not exactly 1/32nd but whatever size was convenient to fit in with standard chassis dimensions or make them competitive with other cars in the range.Also many plastic kits are not exactly 1/32nd, especially early kits which were often not made to any particular scale (sometimes sized to fit a standard box) but were later re labled as 1/32nd if they were close (Linberg were particularly bad for this) when 1/32nd became adopted for slot cars.
