Did You Know…..? Tonkin Replicas’ TON Brand (1:87 scale)


 TON (rhymes with stone) is often referred to as “little trucks that make a big impression”.  These affordable truck models are extracting in detail at 1:87 scale. TON Brand began in 1974, originally designed for mass market giveaways, these scale model trucks have ample imprint areas and a memorable end-user presence all wrapped up in style.  Why TON trucks?  The 1:87 scale is compact, convenient.
