O Scale People

Post by IFHP » Tue Nov 13, 2012 3:06 am

O Scale People

I started buying O-Scale figurines as accessories to my scale car collection, but now I find that these little folks have sort of taken on a life of their own. ;)

Indeed! Fascinating how narrative these pictures are, where "dead objects" comes to life when given a context and our imagination comes to work. Thanks for sharing these scenes. :)

Very nice set-ups! I also collect figures and love "playing around" with them although I don't have any bigger diorama (only the ones from the French part works series La Route Bleue). More pics coming??

Here are a couple of old favorites. Very moody and somewhat ironic as the setting is a Holiday Village diorama.

They definitely look good, but for my taste the best ones so far are these (my collection);

White metal and painted.

Those mechanics seem to have chubby bodys and arms..
Another good option for decent figures is the MC Presidential Limo series (I especially like the Kennedy figure because the face is so real: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v209/ ... G_0067.jpg)

Motor Heads are going to release many 1:43 figures soon (police officers, show girls and family-car nuts characters)... Every year it is getting better for us, 1:43 scale figure collectors!

That was my first ever 1:43, partly because the figured were so animated.

Exciting news. I have tonnes of ideas for additional O scale figurines.
