Hello,

I need your help. My question is: The ancient Scalextric leyland lorry and roadtrains are a real 1/32 scale model or is made in a scale more little? I can not find any image wich compare one lorry whit a car or whit the ancient SCX Mercedes Truck, but by the images that I can see in the need the lorry sems too little for a 1/32 scale.

Thanks and Best Regards to all!

David,

The road train trailer is 210mm long (don't know how that compares the real thing, scale wise).

Hoep that helps.

Coincidentally, I have mine on sale on e-bay at the moment.

Regards,

Hello David,
You are correct the Leyland truck is not 1:32 scale. The 1:1 Leyland T45 is about 3400 mm wide and the Scalextric one is 59 mm wide so that makes it approximately 1:55 scale.
An SCX Mercedes truck is 66mm wide, cannot find a 1:1 width, would think it is about 1:45 scale.

Kind regards, Leo

I think the Scaley trucks were supposedly 1/43 scale, the SCX 1/32 and the Fly 1/36. But manufacturers have been known to fib about scale before!

Hello,

Thanks by your replay Mr. Chappell, the average length of a Fly truck is about to 160 mm, and that is, more or lease, the SCX Mercedes length. That is more than half the size of the Scalextric roadtrain trailer. For the images that I've seen of the Scalextric roadtrains, the truck has a length of about the half of the trailer. That leaves very little to the side of a SCX or Fly trucks. But I do not know what was the real size of a Leyland truck and how big it was.

Thanks and Best Regards!
