Good morning... doing the fleabay trawl and this turns up looks like a 385....
I know what it looks like... but is 1/50 or as i think 1/64.... as the box looks suspiciously norscot..

There's been a few of those Chinese branded cat norscot models showing up on eBay. It looks almost exact to the Norscot model cast, and probably is, just a few minor of things different. He shows a ruler measuring how long it is with the boom ad stick stretched out, looks to be cm?? If it is it probably is 1/64 scale

Ruler shows 30cm, which is 12 inches so I'd say it is 1:50th scale.

There's no way that's 1/50, it's the 1/64 version.

Obviously it's a re-branded Norscot. Norscot has not produced a 1:50 385 which means it would be their 1:64 385. 30cm is far to small to be 1:50 as the Norscot 330 reaches 29cm. Lastly, the lack of detail and rubber tracks would match the 1:64 385.

Fair do's. I was just comparing it to my ZX870 which measures 30cm long, but if Norscot never made a 385 then that pretty much clears it up!

I thought it looked like the 1/64 but its not unheard of for chinese factories to borrow or blatantly copy or rescale other people's toolings

but a good source for those wanting the u/c for 345bl conversions....

Just measured my 1/64 Norscot 385. It came in at about 29.5 centimeters. So I'd say it's a rebranded 1/64 Norscot model.
