Measuring my own hand from that point on the finger to that point on the hand I came out with 5" which is 20' in O scale which is about right for a truck that size.

I don't believe Classic Metal Works makes anything in O scale.

I just realized that the URL to more pictures says 187, so I guess it's HO.

Should have paid more attention. I certainly thought it was larger than S.

A little older and it would be great for some sort of itinerant specialist on the Sundance (Dentist, photographer, pot mender, geologist)
