If you consider a pedal car a model, I say model. check out the size of the steering wheel.

It is a 1/2 scale one-off pedal car built by a father and son team. The angle of the photo helps hide the wheels which have solid backs. Clues for me, before finding it: the brake drums didn't look like the real ones, and the big central steering wheel.
