    Once again special thanks to Bill a retired collector for this piece. It is a statuette of Boy Scout 6" tall including the base. The original which is life size was erected in Philadelphia back in 1937. It was made by R Tait McKenzie (a Canadian named McKenzie just like Bob and Doug). It was removed in 2013, not sure where it is now. There are replicas in the US, Canada and Great Britain and possibly more.
    To back up a bit the actual original was an 18" statue made 1915. May be a while before I acquire a 1915 uniform.

      There is something extremely appealing about this statue; it's calm and well, statuesque.
      He certainly outshines and outsizes your other figures.
      Beware however, Mr Peanut and gnome appear shaded and are certain to rebel. Be prepared!

      I wonder why the statue was removed in 2013 ?

      Thank you very much racer4four. Perhaps I should move him away from the gnomes as they can be sneaky.

      Thank you very much Trey. It was removed due to a legal case vs the city of Philadelphia. The scouts won but vacated due to a settlement with the city.
