Scope note
Representations or copies of an object that are larger or smaller than the actual size of the object being represented, and manufactured precisely according to relative size. Typically, the scale model is smaller than the original and used for illustrating the object, for a toy or collectible, or as a guide to constructing it in full size. Scale models may be one- or two-dimensional. Scale models are generally built according to a standard scale for the particular product; for example, model trains may be HO scale (1:87 scale), model ships may be 1:500 scale, and dollhouse furniture may be 1:12 scale.
