I went to Wally's place today and I could not contain myself. So I bought these guys home. I had the Bronco and when I saw these "Wild Hunting Playsets" Ideas started popping in my head. They are supposed to be about 1/48th scale. But the animals look just right for 1/25th scale. I mean come on now, the fish look big enough to eat the fisherman. Or at least his dog........ LOL

Those animals alone are worth the price of the whole package. Good score, Jimbo.

Hey Virgil:

If you want 1/25th scale cows get the Lemax cow and bull. They are perfect. There are some for sale on Ebay......

Thanks, Jim, I actually got some in 1/87th scale from Preiser . . . these are nice too. Now all I've got to do is putting to good use.

Nice score HJ. There are lots of interesting toys and whatnot that we can use in all sorts of odd places. I found this working Christmas ornamental fountain at the hardware store where I work. That's a 1/16 Don Prudhome standing to the left. This could be used for different scales as a roundabout, fountain in Italy with Ferrari parked in front, a King Tiger crew using the water,.........
It does splash a tad bit of water near the fountain. Thumbs Down

It could also come in handy in a diorama of an ancient Roman men's room... Evil

Great fountain! You have to be real careful with real water, though. It doesn' look "real" in scale. Has anybody perhaps tried a light, clear oil (like vegetable oil) or something similar to duplicate scale water?
