Woody,

Musket Miniatures makes scale model coyotes. But it's H0 scale, so not big enough for you.
And I found these: http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/our-ranges/general-purpose-animals-carts-and-baggage/animals-collection-bcgpr011/
Also some coyotes there. The size/scale ??? is 28mm, I have no idea what that means.

I know you can model very quick, so show some pics! :bg:

Slightly over an inch, about 1.1 inches in fact.

I believe 28mm is about the same as 1/64" and is mainly a war-gamers scale.

I have bought a few card stock models listed as 28mm / 1:64.

This is a good site for different people related 28mm models and a site I have bought stuff from:

That reminds me of a dozen or so years ago when I tried out G/F scale using Locolinc radio control with batteries in the tender. If a train were to derail, it was sort of line the old Timex add said, it "takes a licking and keeps on ticking." Wooden rail wouldn't be a problem (except for the wood rotting in the Oregon rain.)

28MM

At one time, before wargamers, the "scale" of military model figures was the height, (or scale) of the figure  from th bottom of the feet to the FOREHEAD of the figure. As I recall 35mm was the most common, I have heard of 28.

Now you want to know why the forehead, don't you?

Because so many of the military figures from the past wore ridiculous headgear (some still do--the British "Shako" [sp?]) this method eliminated guessing where the top of the head was.

This information dredged up from the Kephart cesspool of useless knowledge

Woodie-

Isabard Kingdom Brunell, one of England's better engineers built an experimental subway system using vacuum to suck the cars along (honest). Leather was used to seal the pipe where the device attached to the car entered, because it was flexible, and available (cheap).

The rats loved it.

From Alberta to rats :doh:

The logging industry in Queensland (Australia) used wooden rails as well

28mm is 1/56 scale.
40mm (I found that also somewhere) is 1/48 and 20mm is 1/90.

I didn't find any 1/32 scale wild animals, but I found a link to a website of someone who have many 1/32 animals. Maybe you could ask him where he get those Woodie.

This is the link: http://www.collectorsquest.com/collection/2777/plastic-animals-figures-1-32-scale

Herb: I didn't find any 1/32 rats either, so the vacuum system is not an option for Woodie :P.
