    • Just messing around yesterday afternoon and made this . Took one of my figures and manipulated it while it was still curing.  Found plans on the web for a casket.

      I think you are sandbagging me Bruce.... but I will go with "I am providing an answer for the benefit of other readers who may not know".

      Me?  Sandbagging?

      I remember how important it seemed to put figures in my cars;  now, I seldom remove the roof to look at them.   

      Still, it is nice to see them through the windows...

    • Sorry Guys I did not explain what the article is about. If you follow the link you will see it covers the different size benches with a quick look at figures that do and do not fit. I rarely post anything on 1/24th or 1/22.5 but thought I would share this since a couple of people were looking for a low budget option.

       

      I did not paint the stuff in the topic picture... These were ordered on E-bay as you see them. The armless figure is something I am working on for interchangeable arms/heads.

       

      Bruce your figures are all 1/20.3. The first one is Miss Jenny from Fine Folks (available from Ozark Minis) the rest are all from Scale Humans, Rick Kapuaalas creations and unfortunately he is not making anymore of the resin castings. Some however are on shapeways for 3D printing but at very high prices. Hit his website for links.

       

      I was fortunate enough to clean up on Rick's figures when he was still producing them. I used quite a few in my coach.

         I need to track down passengers for the smaller LGB  passenger cars I have

       They are part of the switching layout that is near to getting off the ground now that our heat is resting!

      They do look nice.   Boomer (aka Monkey Boy) sure has a way with figures.

    • I happened to be buying craft paper and spotted these figures at Michaels Crafts.  The range is called Tiny Treasures.

       

       

       

      The witch is clearly about 1/20th scale - that guy is a Tamiya pit crew 1/20th figure.  The skeletons are good for 7/8ths scale, as is that diesel critter.

    •   You are an artiste, jb.

    • Finally have the passengers rough painted. Now you put on the magnifying glasses, grab a toothpick and clean up all the paint slop over.

      Then I'll lightly stain the figures to bring out the highlights.

      My twin gals are looking extremely sexy.

    • Started to build a 7/8 passenger car, open style. Realized I needed passengers. James sent me a selection of sitting bodies, heads and hands, all raw

      castings.

       

       

      A couple hours of filing, sanding, pinning and glueing.

       

       

      Cleaned and ready to paint.

    • That's why I'm only gonna build one room shacks for my RR in 7/8.

    • Tac

      1/24th was the standard through the 1960s. These were much more on the toy side with several sets offered by Marx and Ideal. At some point 1/12th took over as the interest switched from kids to adult modelers. It is a much bigger hobby than GR with lots of custom creations.

       

      They can be huge. Hobby Lobby sells some of the kits.

       

       

       

      $64K for this one.

       

      Geez what some people will spend their money on!
