1/32 Scale Diecast
The 1/32 scale diecast car is typically around 6 inches in length. It represents one unit of measurement as 32 units in reality. Thus, an average man will be depicted as 2-1/4 inches in height if based on the 1/32 scale diecast range. This was the typical scale for the Gauge 1 model trains and toys as well as figure modeling. The 1/32 scale diecast figures were used to match equipments for miniaturized war gaming, mainly for "skirmish" scale games and is also the common scale for military modeling.
A compromise between the 1/18 scale diecast and the 1/43 scale diecast, the 1/32 scale diecast models are the ideal size for automobile enthusiasts who are tight on the budget or space looking to begin a diecast collection. Most of these modern 1/32 scale diecast cars feature workable doors and hood and are a perfect fit for the bookcase or fireplace mantle. In addition, those who are into miniature wargaming or historical dioramas will find the 1/32 scale diecast figures tastefully sculpted making them very collectable as well.
The 1/32 scale diecast is also the standard for agricultural and construction models like those manufactured by Britains or Siku. These 1/32 scale diecast models are not only collectibles but also have immense play value. For example, Siku's John Deere Tractor features a 1/32 scale diecast remote controlled model with workable lights and turn indicators. Apart from agricultural models, the 1/32 scale is also adopted for slot cars by slot car manufacturers like Scalextric and Victory Industries. These are electrical powered miniatures vehicles that are guided by a slot in the track which they run.
Nevertheless, despite the wide genres that adopted this scale, the genre that predominantly features 1/32 scale diecast models is still the military genre. Apart from figures, you can find Tanks, Half-Trucks and Warbirds that comes from the 1/32 scale diecast series. Thus, diecast hobbyists interested in the military genre shouldn't be surprised to find most of the models featured are 1/32 scale diecast models.
