Links and info about 1/35  and larger civilian figures, or military figures that can be used/adapted for civilian scenes..

This is intended as a group effort, so feel free to add more links to useable figures! Lets try to Keep this pretty tight on topic and subject, as a reference location, and review of the material or vendor if you have used them/it. I will try and consolidate posts/info wherever I can..so if your topic or post/link vanishes or is modified, it was likely consolidated into/or with another post with a sim topic/material.

The Model Victoria figures I have are excellent castings and highly recommended if you are prepared to pay the price . Just remember that if you are working in this scale it is not usually necessary to have that many figures on a diorama so spending a bit more on a few good quality figures , that paint up well, should justify the extra cost . If you are building a layout then it will get more expensive if you use top quality figures throughout .

I never understood 1/24 scale figures. They're larger than most! They should be more detailed and better sculpted than 1/35 or 1/48 figures.

Thanks for posting these. Good addition/info to to the thread.

These Royal Model figures are impressive. Especially when you compare them to the 1:24 figures.

Socrates: "I drank WHAT?"


What is the deal with the 1:24th offerings (G scale, no?)!!!?  Is it just the scale?  In looking at them, it doesn't look as though anyone has done any sculpting of new figs since Sputnik.  Except for the motorcycle Mama line...  ::)

And as to the detail - my kids have sculpted ash trays in 2nd grade art class that look more like people (I just cracked myself up - hopefully this audience is old enough to remember what an ash tray is and appreciate the irony of making one for your parents).

We just had this conversation last week locally.  Seriously - a Sci-Fi hobby friend of mine who specializes in tricking out old cars into Jetson-esque rides is now sculpting his own stuff to because the scale is such a wasteland.  He does have the bobby socks kit - and I think he just cannablized the set with the nehru jackets and giant peace medallion necklaces.

We are in the process of making up two figures in pretty generic coveralls for our use as workers for auto/factory/rail (with a bare head and hat option)... we may cast them up now, looking at the postings so far.

Paul(non-smoker)Ranta  ;D

"Did I mention this is a bad idea?"


G scale is 1:22:5. Half-inch scale is 1:24. Some refer to 1:20.3 scale as F scale. For the record, it is my opinion that letter designations for scale are childish and stem from the toy train industry of the 1930s. Model railroading is the only hobby that uses such designation.

It is more accurate and less confusing to refer to scale simply by proportion: 1:87.1, 1:48, 1:35, and so on. That is what vehicle and military and ship modelers do. It is what all of us should do, too.



Agreed oh, wise woodwinder,

Though I'll not take shots at rail ethos as an outsider, F, G, etc. does add to the confusion (not that On30, etc. is any easier for my aging melon ;D).  I think one of the things that amazes me (and I think I've seen this discussed on this forum before) is the stunning detail that folks put into multi hundred/thousand $ rail lines, gear and scenes and then populate them with figures out of the Army Action Figure Playset bag of 250... thought the same is often true for other disciplines... a hundred hours of work on a plane/car/tank kit and then set on lousy ground work.

Scale madness isn't limited to rail, BTW, there are some pretty good dust ups over figure accuracy, especially in the 1:35th and 1:32nd (54mm) realm... especially maddening when most of them are built around a weapon or equipment that really is a constant as a starting reference point.  And then when you factor in the whole "is the figure supposed to be 5'6", 5'9, 6' " argument (apologies to our metric friends outside of the Luddited States of America  ;D) - 120mm and 1/16th scale has some real rubbish floating around as well...

So to my eye, the two scales are barely compatible - with the 6 foot and over 1:24th scale figure fudging into the 1:22 space?   
     72"     70"     69"     66"
1:22   3.27   3.18   3.14   3.00
1:24   3.00   2.92   2.88   2.75

Sorry - just some ramblings... time to go back outside and do yard work...
