If i was going to have a rabbit on my layout, i would only have one of those GIANT RABBITS in a model rabbit from Holland. Those suckers are HUGE !!!!!!!!!

In kit #215 by fine scale miniatures, it had a snake in the kit. You would never figure it out by looking at it .

At least in O scale you can actually make out what it is, when looking at it

Any leads for Z scale ants kits (not termites, please). Jose.

After 6 days work the New rabbit is finished. I had to wear magnifiers but actually finished it. It is 1/8 of an inch and to scale. complete with the legs and ears like the first one. It took longer to make this one, as in building up the body in white glue one tiny speck at a time took for ever. and had to use a flat chisel Exacto blade to cut away the excess material once the body was drawn out with my drafting pencil. will post a picture later. as I need to get lawn work done today. As for the shunks. they wouldn't be much harder to make than the rabbits. just need a fine tip drafting pencil, magnifier glasses, a bottle of white glue, round toothpicks with the tips filed into fine points, a flat chisel tip Exacto blade, and lots of patients.

You forgot to add..."bottle of white glue and a bottle of Jack Daniels". 6 days working on an HO rabbit...well I suppose that it's a good way to spend some evenings. BTW, do you have any trains to run? Just askin'...

There is the size comparison that shows the new rabbit with the old. To Answer a question posted Yes I have trains that run. They are just not my focus at this point. Right now I am working on honing my skills at scratch building the things I want for my layout. Yes when your disabled you have lots of time on your hands to work on a hobby. It is actually the only thing you really have to do. I am assuming that from some of the comments people think I am wasting time not only building this hutch, but every ones time posting about it. Sorry if it bores you, I just thought some would enjoy seeing a scratch building project like this in Ho scale. But I guess I could have been mistaken? Chris

I have followed this thread with some amusement, due to all the jokes going to and fro.  I have learned a lot from it, and thank all for the contributions.  The thought of building something small from glue had never occurred to me.  Good job, and thanks for the pictures!  I think the best joke was the lack of hopping!  I think that could be arranged, and should be pursued in all seriousness.  However, then we would have to make the people walk about too.

Not at all, Chris. I also found it an interesting project and one I never would have thought of. Not the rabbit pen or the rabbit itself. That's what makes these forums fun....people do stuff and it isn't always the same project or method. This is a great way to get ideas and other people's viewpoints. Job well done!

Excellent! And, both rabbits look perfectly usable ... like people, they do come in a variety of sizes ... and compared to the figure alongside the hutch, both are "in range" ... very nice work.
