Exactly Mr. Black
A Honda Civic vs a Chevy Monte Carlo vs a Pontiac G6, or GTO all have different weights and wheel bases. Yet they are all still 100% 1:1 scale...because they ARE the real car.
Scale is also something I've seen used for $$$ in another way. 'LICENSING RIGHTS'
I may have the exclusive rights to market a 1/5th scale replica of a certain product, but my licensing agreement would not give me the same rights to the 1/4th scale...unless included in the "scale" agreement.
