    • Thanks John, your Etsy friend has not only great figures, but also some excellent kits.

    • My favorite peeps that live in Elk River (the name of my RR) are the caricatures I

      got from "Little Plastic People", (now out of business.) I have quite a few.

       

      The 3D printed figures are available here:

    • John,

      Those look fantastic!  Great color choices & brush work.  You must have a steady hand and plenty of patience.   The last two figures definitely have a much more English look to them.  Not enough that they would look out of place on a layout whose them was in the US, but they do have an English look about them.

      Nice work.

    • These are 1/12 figures I got from England on eBay.

      they work well with 7/8 scale trains.

    • A good friend and fellow 7/8 scale fan has opened an Etsy shop were he markets 3D resin printed

      figures. They come unpainted. Here are five of them I recently painted for my RR.

    • I sprayed one with rustoleum matte clear and set it out in the sun for a month.  No issues so far.

    • Went to Wally Mart tonight to get the kids' school supplies.  They had two more packages of horses with some new coloring and stances.

    • Took a bit to figure out how to attach additional photos.  Not straight forward.

    • Got these at Wally World for $10 each.  They are about 2.25" at the shoulder.  So about 13-14 hands high in 1:24 scale.  Maybe a tad small but not too bad, especially for the price.  There seems to be 5 different stances among the 8 horses and all different coloring, so a good variety.  Not sure how they will hold up outside.  Will have to buy some clear flat UV paint and hope it doesn't react badly with whatever is coating them.

    • Well done and observations seem to be fully documented. I have already taken advice on the Vallejo paints and your test here substantiates that purchase.

        I am sorry that your guinea pigs were subjected to this torturous study and personally would feel much better if I had the comfort of knowing that all subjects were at least offered three meals a day and had as much liquid as each needed for their personal comforts. I'm sure that you also provided the proper medical attention on a case by case need, and though difficult due to the nature of the test, I would hope that restroom facilities were provided. Showers and tooth care allowed and encouraged for maintenance of personal hygiene.

      Thank them one and all for their participation for our benefit and I would like to be the first to offer the Kingly sum of $.25  to be placed in a kitty and shared among the group for a job well done.

    • Fascinating, fascinating study!  Thanks for the time and expense of running this study.  I am going to share it with the crew so they understand why the PLAYMOBIL has to come inside!

    • Folks;

       

      I had a different sort of problem with a pack donkey that may have been out about 8 years.  It was lead (perhaps made by an outfit called "Jones Junque") and painted with enamel paint.  It pretty much stayed in the shade of a white pine.  Did not fade much, but a squirrel decided to gnaw on the baggage it was carrying.  (They have to gnaw on things because their front teeth never stop growing.)  I probably poisoned the squirrel - not intentionally - but never thought the critter would pick a lead figure to gnaw on.  We also did not have squirrels in our yard before our oak tree started producing acorns.  Had to file and reshape the load, then repaint it.  Not sure what may have become of the squirrel.
