He's 2 feet tall with his hat on. You have no idea how much I studied those pictures! I worked on him during spare time at work, and people in the office were starting to say that I was obsessed. Which I was, but they didn't have to say so. ha!
I forgot to say in my original post, his pockets are all real, functional welt flap pockets, his pants are drop front trousers with functional pockets, and his compass opens and has a dial that turns. It seems like it took me almost as long to figure out how to make things as it did to actually make them.
