Away from the slick, million-dollar truck stands at the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show, a small corner of the transport world is represented in 1:14 scale, built with such precision and detail that if you squinted you’d swear it was the real deal.

The Brisbane Metro RC Truck and Construction Club is a collection of individuals who share the passion of building, modifying and creating in 1:14 scale. And it’s not just trucks either, with the club boasting a ‘mini city’ display at the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show with trucks, cars, machinery and buildings all conforming to the scale with the usual transport-centred sprawl of depot, quarry and petrol station giving the display a life-like feel. There’s even a doughnut shop for the cops to hang out at.

"People who’ve come up to us here at the truck show are all impressed by the scale of everything, the detail, the lights on the trucks and the sounds they make, it’s all pretty realistic," says club owner Chris Leech.
