Pretty close Conga, he's about 2.5 inches.
Jus kiddin, he's a dinky 8.5 inches.
Thanks for all the remarks gang.
#4's going to be slightly bigger, measuring in at a hefty 1.5 feet!

Keep up the good work Sin tiki. You should start going Smaller rather than LaRGER.

Thanx Benzy. Actually I'll keep doing little ones, also want to do a real small 3 or 4 inch one, double sided, then split it in half vertically, to make 2, that have a flat back...then you can mount it somewhere, like on the dash of my car.
I still want to crack a few biggies though.
