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.

Anybody else modelling Z scale fleas?. I can't be the ONLY one!.

Z scale for someone was to big, so instead they went with T scale fleas.;)

I actually did the math, that's about 0.00013 or 13/10,000 of an inch. wonder what kind of Optivisor that guy was using?:shocked:

Ok, boys, back to topic...

NOCH does a nice set of farm animals, item 15711. I used them on an older layout and think, they have the right size.

You can magnify the pic by moving the mouse over it. Maybe you find a source in the US.

I think that the animals look great. In HO scale, subtle differences aren't noticed by most, but if you know that the animals are out of proportion, and it bothers you, then it's best to find something else then. However, if the pig is about waist high for a human, then I think they all, save for the larger rabbit, meet "close enough" standards.

Here  is  the  hutch  so  far.  the  roof  is  not  glued  on  yet  to  give  me  access  to place  details in  it  yet.  plus  the  doors  and  screen  need  to  be  added.  this  was  the  first  rabbit  I  made  and  a  smaller  one is  now  under  construction.  What  ya  Think  close  to  what  the  old  Ah/  Revell  kit  had?

Holy crap! If that's a paper rabbit, I'll pull a lion outta my hat. (Nice job.)

Thanks Dallas, yes it started life as a small piece of poster board that I used a mechanical pencil to draw the shape on. then cut it out and using the tip of a round toothpick I started adding the 3 d shape one small dot at a time of white glue. till the rabbit was 3 d. if u look u can see the strip I drew the rabbit shapes on behind the hutch. Very long process, but I like how it looks in the hutch.

I think that you did a great job on Buggs!

Has to have a name--right?
