Measures approx 1 3/4" tall. Hand cast, and hand painted in a long lasting gloss enamel finish, for that perfect "tinplate" look. If a more realistic flat (matte) finish is desired, you can spray it with "Dul-Cote", which is available at any hobby supply shop. Colors shipped are the same as those shown. This is one of the "classic" figures first made by Barclay in the late 1940's, they called them HO figures when new, but they're really scaled for O gauge. Most all of our figures are cast in a traditional lead based pewter alloy, unless otherwise noted. We sell our figures as adult collectibles, and do NOT recommend them as toys for small children.
