For more than 25 years, Tonkin Replicas has been producing the finest scale model DieCast Tractor Trailers with the most innovative features available. Jack Tonkin has been building scale models in a variety of scales since the 1970s. Known for his highly innovative, cutting edge designs in 1:53 scale, Jack always sought to push the envelope for an ever-increasing level of detail. He was one of the first to incorporate features like an opening hood, setting a standard for the rest of the industry to follow. In 2000, Tonkin Replicas incorporated in Washington state and the daily operations transitioned to Erik Anderson, the current president of Tonkin Replicas. Since its original Signature Series, Tonkin Replicas has pioneered the cutting-edge Precision Series line, an ultra-detailed set of models which include new functionality never seen before in a diecast model. In 2004, Tonkin Replicas reached out to broaden its product offering by acquiring the popular 1:64 scale PEM and AHL lines from Hartoy. Recognizing a need in the marketplace for an inexpensive, affordable scale model that could be used effectively for a wide variety of marketing and promotion, Tonkin Replicas launched the ton 1:87 scale line of truck models one year later. Tonkin Replicas remains on a continual mission to add new details, original features, and inspired design to ensure we are always building the world's finest diecast models. .
