After watching last nights episode of overhaulin I got an incling to build that ride. Just trying to get an idea of what I'd be looking forward to.
I didn't get to see the episode you are referring to, but in the course of photographing the kits for the STAR Models galleries I had the chance to get my mitts on both versions of R&R's 54 Ford Hardtops. Having had a 1:1 Victoria along the way I gave it more than a casual glance and can say I'd build it in a heartbeat.
Proportionally, it was good enough to fool my eyes into accepting any dimensional inaccuracies it may have. If you compare it to photos, you'll see it's pretty close to the real thing. That being said, from what I remember of it, it seemed slightly larger than 1:25th. I didn't have a 53 Lindberg to compare it to at the time so that is just a gut feeling.
