"BIG & LITTLE" The same car in different scales!

Post by 69Stang » Wed Sep 07, 2011 10:42 pm

OK gang, I recently noticed a trend in my collection, and that is having the same car in more than one scale. I figure I am not alone in this aspect, so I though we could start a thread where can share those sibling members of our automotive families.

While I started in 1:64 scale (the most common in North America) and moved up in size, I know many of you here started in 1:18 and moved down. But it still stands to reason that a car which caught your attention in one scale, would still hold it's appeal in another. So let's see those big and little relatives that are in your collection.

No real rules, does not matter the opposing scales, just the same car in two different sizes. Looking forward to a few neat parings.

I'll kick it off with a few examples from my collection. I mentioned in my "bought today thread" that I had recently purchased a Panoz LMP1 Roadster partly because I had a smaller version of the car and though it made a good pair. So here is my 1:43 scale 2000 Le Mans Panoz ( by Onyx) along with a 1:64 version by Hot Wheels.]

And for number two...how about the same car even by the same manufacture! A pair of 1965 Shelby 427 S/C Cobras both by Kyosho.

Way to do it Julio, a three-Pete! Now THAT'S what I'm talking about! And what a great car to do this with.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Wonderful guys! I knew I was not alone in this madness! :D

Andy, I have to be honest, your avatar was on my mind when I started thinking about this thread.

And by gosh, I think you've been snake bit there Jeff!!!!

And who wouldn't like the two Escort's next two each other? Cool stuff guys!

Yes! Stang, neat idea. My posting is an old picture and the cars have become so scattered I can't check to see who made them. The 1/64 are all Hot Wheels, and I think all the 1/43 are Road Champs or Road Signatures. I have paid so little attention to 1/18 lately that their manufacturers completely escape me and I just realized now I have a 1/24 '57 nomad and a 1/24 '50 Ford woody so I could retake this shot with more scales yet.

Will the madness ever stop?

This is a great thread! The only thing I "think" I have tucked away that would qualify is a 1:43 Bang Cobra and a 1:87 Cobra by some no name company / a 1:18 Maisto Aston DB7 and 1:43 Vitesse Aston DB7!

So in their absence, I'll show big and little :P

I was saving that fact for the interview question - what will S143 find most surprising - and that would be that i'm 4ft 2inches tall :lol:

Enjoying this thread. I don't have any suitable pictures sadly - although some of my 1/18 models are now replaced by 1/43, I didn't go through a stage of having both.

OK, now that's neat...you just went from 1:18 to 1:43, so I will take the same car from 1:43 to 1:64! Del Prado (IXO) to Hot Wheels....

Popular in all scales I guess, Ward.
Now all we need is someone to show us the 1:10 and 1:12. :D

For today Kyosho 1:18 and Redline 1:43

WOW Jeff :shock: GTOs are gorgeous! I take it the Kyosho is a 1:18 you don't intend to part with ? :P

Always a thrill to see your 1:18s; how many did you once own? When did you get your first and what was it? I'm guessing it's what got the whole thing going as it did for many of us?
