Not what he asked. He knows whose layout it is. He is looking for modeling opinions, not permission. "It's your layout" is never helpful.

Now, to address the question: holy cow, that's way too big. Think about it. It would look, to use a technical modeling term, stupid.

1:32 is #1 scale (as in the big MTH line), not #0 (the proper "O gauge" term - it's a zero, not an "O") scale.

1/50 scale is best for "O" gauge.  1/48 is a bit too big.

1:48 is exactly the correct scale for vehicles on an O gauge layout. 1:43 is a common size for die cast model cars but it is too big by about 12%. 1:32 is 50% too big for O gauge. 1:50 is 4% too small for O gauge. Many O gauge/scale modelers accept 1:43 and 1:50 scale vehicles as accurate enough to use as scale models on their layouts.
