    TONKIN REPLICAS

    1/64 scale diecast trucks

    Tonkin Replicas manufacturers scale model trucks.

    Tonkin Replicas has been developing and producing top quality toy model replicas for more than 25 years. Its history goes back even further to the 1970s when Jack Tonkin took his first steps in the scale model industry. Erik Anderson took over the baton in 2000, expanding the company into becoming the absolute market leader in North America.

    Originally, the main focus of Tonkin Replicas was truck and trailer models. However, Tonkin recently succeeded in obtaining the Caterpillar license and the company now aims to set the standard in the construction machinery sector.

    For more than 25 years, Tonkin Replicas has been producing the finest scale models 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.

    In 2003 Tonkin Replicas acquires AHL Replicas and PEM Trucks.

    Recently relaunched, AHL Brand Replicas are sturdy 1:64 scale models that bring smiles to every collector.

    Purchased by Tonkin Replicas in 2003, AHL Brand Replicas have maintained their strong metal construction and colorful design. Each tractor/trailer combination is a both visually and physically memorable piece.

    Building on the success originally started by Hartoy, the PEM line became a part of Tonkin Replicas family of brands in 2003.

    Tonkin Replicas continues to develop and improve the line with new PEM models that consistently earn distinction amongst their peers. A brand recognized the world over by collectors, PEM is a great choice for your next replica that only keeps getting better.
