    • A package turned up today from China with a set of figures in it. For $9.14 I got 8 strange figures - presumably japanese graphic heroes or villans.

      I'm not sure what the scale is, but lots of these figures seem to be made with an elastic ruler.  Here's 2 with guns and a lady who is 1:18th according to American Diorama.

       

       

      But this guy is supposed be 1:20.

       

       

      And this is with a Bachmann Europe Scenecraft 1:19th driver (who seems a bit small to me.)

    • Here's an interesting thread from another forum - More figures for the PLR

       

      Perhaps some of these are of proper scale and era.

    • Some really go looking figures in more ways than 1 but again no railroad ones, Just plain folk had some good ones but think the went out of business, best I have found so far for the money is American diorama ones and  $6.98 each, hard to beat and they do have a couple in blue bib overhauls, also saw some 1:20 ones one EBay but at 3 and 1/2' tall just too big for some of my engines

      Ron have you purchased anything from this website, looking throught the  site some look like picures of plastic model cars with a figure included. Just wondering how well the figures are and if they are what the picture shows.

    • There was figures that Aristo Craft offered on their website but I think they were a stand along company. I cannot remember their name. Do you have an idea?

    • What I line about flat mat paint on figures is that you can go to Wally World, but a bunch of different colored acrylic paints and have a whole new person for the layout. I have tried to paint the shiny people, without much success.

      Wow. What a selection, and 1:20 at the bottom.  Some I've never seen - Red Riding Hood with a rifle?

    • Ron:

       

      Since these are 3D printed you can order each figure at your desired scale.  Find a figure you want and left-click "SELECT OPTIONS" and then left-click on the SCALE: option that has "Choose an option".  You will see the available scales that can be ordered and the associated price in Pounds when selected.

       

      You can just use something like Google to convert Pounds to Dollars

       

      I haven't ordered from them nor investigated their shipping rates.  I am assuming that they will ship internationally.

    • I got my tiny detail brushes last week so I started painting the figures I got from China.  The young police lady, while looking OK from the front, turned out her jacket was riding up at the back so she was a little x-rated.  So a skirt was added - still looks pretty distracting. Lots of details to take care of, including the sheen on his jacket.

      She and the guy on the left are the size of the credit card, and are supposed to be 1:20, so I guess they are. (The Costume Daphne in black is 1:24th, and the loco is 1:27.)

    • Mark, those are large sale? There are some nice ones in the list. I did not see how much they were in U.S. dollars.

    • I have some LGB (1/22) and Bachman (1/20) figures that I need to clean out. PM if interested.
