Diecast Collectors typically collect within one scale, the collector’s preferences vary across several popular scales, 1:18 on the big side, and somewhat limited in offerings. The 1/25 or 1/24 the commercial promotional scale made popular in the US by automotive manufacturers. 1/43 the internationally popular scale made popular by O scale railroad modelers and 1/87, the half scale of O, again made popular in the 1960’s. 1/64 is a now popular scale, these models are deemed S scale by model railroaders. There is even one smaller scale, N at 1/20th the size of 1/1 prototypes, it’s a popular scale for modelers limited in space. Checker diecast collectors have the luxury of being able to collect all of the scales listed above.
The following Checker models have been offered in all scales. I am sure most folks will think we’re lucky as Checker as so iconic, it’s a natural that collectors of all scales want Checker models. In reality, it most likely due to the fact that most Railroad Modelers like to depict taxicabs awaiting scale passengers from at scale train depots for the arrive scale model passenger trains. Lucky for us.
