Who made what in 1/32nd Scale

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

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)

Code

DC - Die cast metal, NK - None Known, PB - Plastic bodyshell only, PK - Plastic kit (static), PT - Plastic toy, (often friction drive), RB - Resin Bodyshell only, RSC - Resin bodied Slot Car (RTR), RSCK - Resin bodied Slot Car Kit, SC - Slot Car (RTR), SCK - Slot Car Kit (with plastic bodyshell)

Very few Vauxhall models made, perhaps due to lack of motorsport success.

Viva Range

- HA Deluxe - Airfix (PK - O),(SC - O), (SCK - O) - plastic kit is currently re available, but for how long?

- HA SL90 - Onethirtysecond (RB - C)

- HB (probably Brabham type) - Taylormade (VF - O)

Victor Range

- FD estate - Airfix (PK - O)

- FD estate - 32 Scale (RB - C)

Velox/Cresta Range - NK

Chevette - NK

 

 

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.
