    • wow , some of them look like they have just been sprayed with some Dullcoat, most are holding up quite well. Maybe some close ups or a comparison picture from 2 of the outside shots, since that is where most of us will be looking at them anyway. Very informative thread Boomer!

      Native American, porter and yelling dude seem to be really holding up well, well almost all look like very little wear and tear, ceptin the broken legs/ankles

      Chalky haze is accumulating on the Railroad Ave figure and every place the mud was on him the paint was stripped.

    • Generally, reds, oranges and yellows tend to fade the worst, and this test appears to be bearing that out. The pink shirt on the kid now looks almost white, as does the yellowish shirt on the shorter, pop-eyed guy. Even the green suitcase has lost its yellow and now looks powder blue. But a more accurate judgement could be made if the before and after pictures were taken in the same lighting conditions.

       

      And I dunno what kind of paint was on the Jed Clampet looking dude's overalls, but his pant legs appear to be shedding that paint in flakes.

    • Looking long and hard at the pictures, I must ask if it is the picture coloration or the actual figure coloration, that seems to show that the greatest noticeable change to me is in the skin toning. I can see that the clothes are fading and it's possible that their mass invades the perception of the amount of fade between the areas.???????

      Five months of harsh weather and the figures seem to be holding up very well. Some slight fading and plenty of hail damage but not as severe as I expected. Heading into the sunniest part of the year now. We shall see how they handle that.

    • that these two broke might not be a quality issue.

      they are two of the three tallest figures. so the whole set-up landed on their heads, not on the shorties' heads.

      the real question is, why the third "giant" did not break? wearing a hard hat??

      So since only two broke, does that down grade their quality ?

      If a 70 MPH wind picked you up and threw you across the yard, wouldn't you break?

       

      Actually, when compensated for scale, the wind was much faster....

      A little late getting this one up. Winds gusting to 70mph. Blew the figs off their stand and broke two of them. I have repaired the joints with stem wire and superglue using the drill and pin method.

      Temps in the seventies everyday now with plenty of sun. Oh the pain, the pain!!!!!
