Hey  all,  I  have  built  a  copy  of  the  rabbit  hutch  that  was  in  my  old  Revell  barn  group  set  that  is  now  long  gone.   So  I  made  a  new  one  from  card stock.   But  I  remember  there  were  2  rabbits  that  came  with  the  set that  went  into  the  hutch.   But  I  am  not  sure  how  big  they  should  be?  I  tried  making  one but  it seems a  bit  larger  to  me.  it's  about  1/4  inch long,  and  a  1/4  inch  high.   should  it  be  1/16?

Chris--

An HO Rabbit is slightly smaller than an HO Jetta or Passat.

(I live for days like this!!!!)

Real rabbits  that are raised for meat seldom get  longer than 12" nose to tail so about an eighth of an inch would be right, with  one sixteenth inch long ears. Wild rabbits are smaller.

Herb

Chris,

You need to be raising "Rhosgobel Rabbits" (The link opens slow on some computers)

The price for them has sky-rocketed in the last few months.

Just call it a Flemish Giant and you're right on. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flemish_Giant

I'm sorry guys...

...I disagree !

No one has considered the rabbits diet...

...how many carrots it's eaten...

...or age group ( could be a wee bunny ).


" Now where'e dat pesky wabbit ? "


Cheers

Si.

Chris, love the 'Barn Set' box-pic...
...a blast from the past, for sure !

We love 1:32 'Britains' stuff, from the 'swinging-sixties' here !

Chris,

An HO scale Rabbit is between an HO scale mouse, and an HO scale Dog.:moose:

To be serious though, if the rabbit is 1/4" in height, that means that the rabbit (.25 x 87.1) is 21" in height in 1:1 scale. Just my opinion, but that seems too big.

Wait till I post about my new addition to the railroad, an N scale ant colony.:)

I don't think I can top Herb for comedy, but I gave it a shot.

--James:java:
