Who We Are, What We Do

The 1/87 Vehicle Club was established to promote the construction, use, and manufacture of prototypically accurate scale vehicle and equipment models specifically in 1/87 (HO) scale. 1/87 scale is most commonly referred to as "HO" scale because this is the scale of HO gauge model trains, by far the most popular scale for railroad modeling.

Our club assists in the exhibition, promotion, manufacturing, and production research of vehicles of all kinds in 1/87 (HO) scale. This web site and associated events are the place to meet and communicate with other people who are passionate about your hobby.

We continue to update the Classic Mint Collectibles web site as we uncover more photos, some never before published. This is another of the projects we've recently completed, an archival web site for Classic Mint Collectibles. In case you're a recent "convert" to 1/87 scale or have only recently discovered our web site, Classic Mint Collectibles produced some of the most exquisite museum quality brass models of HO scale Peterbilt trucks, Komatsu and John Deere mining and construction equipment, and Talbert lowboy and Heil pneumatic bulk trailers from 2003 through 2009. Having been involved in the research and development of these models we feel uniquely qualified to keep the brand at the forefront of any discussion regarding high quality models in 1/87 scale. We'll be adding to the site and doing all we can to keep the content fresh so please check it out. We hope you enjoy the site! [posted 08/02/2013]
