|I know it is a marketing trick, but scale means scale. As a mathematician I othat there is a difference between 1/100 and 1/87. The various other names we use can be muddled up, although I don't like it, it is only a name.
I ordered what I thought wre some /100 scale road vehicles from China. They arrived today and they were NOREV 1/87 scale. Very nice, very good price, and I can use them, but not 1/100 scale. The description was very clever as it actually said '1/100 TT HO', so I was expecting they might be 1/87 scale.
The positive thing is that it is worth taking a punt on Chinese models, these were NOREV so good quality, and ideal for anyone modelling HO scale.
Will try anything once, looking for the ultimate easy to set up portable exhibition layout, preferably French narrow gauge and with lots going on, not necessary on the rails.
