The only available HO Scale model until recently, was the Athearn S-12. This scales out pretty well other than being too fat in the hood, and having an earlier Baldwin cab roof profile. The pilot to pilot distance is within 0.5 mm of being correct, the truck centers are within 0.5 mm of also being correct, and the truck wheelbase is correct at 8 feet (28 mm).
Now we have the Stewart HO Scale offering.
