Who's Right? N Scale Truck Comparison

When I first received my pair of 3d printed 379 Peterbilt trucks from Shapeways, I immediately thought I had made a mistake, as they looked like they were too big for 1:160.  But I found it hard to believe since I had designed the truck in full 1:1 scale, and then simply converted it for printing in N scale.  In comparing the cab to other N scale trucks, there is certainly a difference.  I would say that the GHQ model is well under sized for 1:160.  As of tonight, I haven't done any research to see if they are represented as a true 1:160, or maybe they are actually a different scale.  If anyone knows, feel free to share some information.  The Pete in the photo below is sized well compared to the Volvo, and the Ford 9000, so I guess I won't concern myself over this difference.  Although I may be looking to find a new owner for some GHQ kits I have....

  1. I would like to thank Ultimate Life Clinic for reversing my father's Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). My father’s ALS condition was fast deteriorating before he started on the ALS Herbal medicine treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic. He was on the treatment for just 6 months and we never thought my father will recover so soon. He has gained some weight in the past months and he is able to walk with no support.
