They should make a rabbit version.

Or a giant wooden badger….

There's someone on shapeways that does a rabbit. I will be ordering one next time I get something from them.

So in scale, it is approximately 25-26 feet high, same in length and just under 12 feet across? Seems fair given the widest gates located so far seem to have been around 10 feet and it would have to have been at least around 25 feet to require the dismantling of the tops. How many men would fit in that? Most ancients seem to indicate the horse held 30-40, give or take, (Apollodorus 50,Quintus Smyrnaeus 30+; Tsetses 23) while the Little Iliad puts it at a whopping 3000! For the model, up to 50 or so doesn't seem inconceivable, though full panoply would drastically reduce that due to weight. Assuming they are covert infiltrators, it seems more likely they were lightly armored or unarmored (perhaps nude) to minimize noise that could foil the plan.

This product is the best idea ever. Someone really had their thinking cap on.

Scale size is less important that whether or not it will work on the table. It's not like we have any idea how big the "actual" horse was.

Great look, reasonably priced, home run!

Thank you very much, Andrew Walters!

The only Trojan horse that looked the part used to be made by Grand Manner. I said "used to" because they do not seem to make much of anyting these days.
The horse being talked about here looks like a toy and not a nice one at that.
