So the box says 1/8 scale... But here's the body up next to a 1/8 scale 32 ford body.15402446685221470591856.thumb.jpg.1c50af621f9b17f04e9d5ee873122c72.jpg1540244706353589351209.thumb.jpg.cc36770d7fd5b6893fc6f543259757a6.jpg

so I think the box is lying to me and its really a 1/12 scale rather than a 1/8 scale.

A T is a MUCH smaller car than a '32 Ford. I think you'll find it is actually 1/8 scale.

What kit is it? I can tell you for certain...

Yes its a revell ford t big tub. I always assumed a model t was the same if not close to the same scale as a model a. I have never actually gotten the chance to compare the two cars in person, so its neat actually learning the T is smaller then the A.

Actually, an A is between the size of a T and a '32; a '32 ("deuce") isn't an A...it's bigger. And an A is bigger than a T.

So...a '32 deuce is bigger than a model A, and a model A (1928-1931) is bigger than a model T (through 1927)...and they only made the "deuce" body design for one year...'32...but it's sometimes called a model B through '34 IF it has the 4-cylinder engine from the A (even though the '33-'34 cars are entirely different otherwise from a '32). Confused yet? The V8 '32 deuce is called a model 18, but in '33-'34 it's called a model 40.

I have a couple of the Big Tub kits, and they're definitely 1/8.

Cool project you have there.  :D

I like this scale as my old eyes can see it and the details aren't so fine that I can't detail.

Been a bit since I worked on this. I will hopefully get back to it soon, though I’m currently working on some music for the workshop so I may not get to it any time soon.
