It says 1.24th on the packaging but I compared it to the AMT kit and it's really 1.25th. I made it signifcantly more presentable by adding BMF, an antenna and Modelhaus tyres on AMT wheels.

That looks really great Peter.  Classic Metal Works makes some nice stuff.  I've already built their '55 Olds kit and am currently working on their '53 Cadillac which is a really nice looking car.  The boxes sometimes say that the cars are 1/24 scale and sometimes say 1/26 scale.  They look to be a bit smaller than 1/25 scale so I think the 1/26 scale is more correct.
