Larry claims his stuff will match 24/25th scale models, but the are actually closer to 22nd scale. They DO look a tad larger when placed next to actual 24th/25th scale stuff, but if you need Dio stuff, he DOES have ALOT of interesting stuff. I order from him on occasion and he does mail fairly quickly, but at times it CAN take what seems to be longer than average, but he does come thru.

They are in G scale (hence the name Larry G Scale!)... 1/22.5 to be exact. G scale is a model railroad scale, not a model car scale. His stuff is meant for G scale model RR layouts, which are huge and often are set up outdoors (known as "garden railroads")... but the scale is close enough to 1/24-1/25 to still look "right" when they're used with model cars.

I've gotten a couple of things from him in the past, had just an ok deal, took awhile to get items, but was exactly what I ordered

A couple of years ago, I ordered a couple of Coke crates from him, was very satisfied with the product and the transaction.

G Scale comprises everything from 1/29 to 1/22.5. Most buildings done in G Scale are in 1/25th. Most of what I see in the plant is 1/29 for rolling stock. Yup! My boss bought a company that sold G scale trains. They call it Wisconsin/Illinois Trains. They are just selling rolling stock, locomotives, track, electronics for DCC and sound, and some building kits from various makers like Bachmann, LGB, Pico and others. I'm trying to get them to take on a line of figures.
