1:24/25 scale People- help!
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, February 15, 2004 9:41 PM
Hey, anybody know where I can find some people to go in a car show diorama I'm building? I got some from SELtd., but they just don't have enough, 'cause I'm wanting to make a fairly populated car show diorama, and I don't wanna have a lot of twins runnin' around on it...

Thanks!

There are plenty of different figures out there. Tamiya has a nice set called Campus Friends, thet even includes a Vespa! Jimmy Flintstone has a vast collection, some even with clothes on...
Preiser makes some too. Figures are often measured in mm's, instead of the fractions (1/24, 1/25) usually used by us car modellers. I think 1/25 would be about 75mm in this term. Try checking out the figure selection at Squadron, Hannants, and other large suppliers.

You could always buy a bunch of the same person and change poses and appearances of them with some careful putty sculpting. This idea appeals to me because i enjoy that sort of thing, but may be more time consuming than you want.

You can even change their sex like i did the chick in the Futura kit.......she is Robin from Batman now...not like that was really such a stretch either, lol.

thanx for the replies, and yes, that's a real working car- it's an '02 model w/ all available options except the cd changer- we barely got it, 'cause when we ordered it, 'bird all production had ended except the collector's edition and the base firebirds, but we managed to get a collector's edition resprayed red (before it left the factory- no mods here!) so there it is... it's probably one of the last red T/As made!

I wish I could have a T/A like that. I can't get in and out of them anymore. Bad back, you know.
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.
