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 (which are 1/87.1 scale), 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. Our membership reflects active modelers, manufacturers, historians,
and collectors in the military, commercial truck, specialty and
racing automobile, railroad matinenance of way (MOW), intermodal, antique automobile and truck,
fire fighting equipment, crane and rigging, construction and mining equipment, and farm and agricultural equipment
fields. If you can imagine a piece of machinery or a vehicle,
we probably already have a member who has a passion for those models 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.
The premier club events are our national convention and regional meets.
Modelers from all over the United States, North America, and foreign
countries meet to display their models, meet manufacturers and other
modelers, and have a great time sharing this hobby with others.
