1950s Civilians came up in email chat with Alan Tradgardland Gruber for his 50s Very British Civil War scenario using Herald figures.
Civilian figures in 1:32 or 54mm scale are usually a bit scarce but I remembered a trial pack of such figures that I ordered years ago. Still available online, these seem to show some odd sculpting and range of fashions or decades.
Somewhere / sometimes there is a weird spindly wraithlike child in this set. Sometimes not.
Size comparison with 54mm Prince August and original Hollowcast figures –
The Diana like figure could be a passable ‘dead spit’ of Jane the 1940s wartime comic ‘strip’ hero by Norman Pett. Is there a secret camera in that handbag?
Now just where do I get a 54mm / 1:32 dachshund?
O Gauge 40 – 42mm figures
I wasn’t sure how these measure up as O Guage figures (at about 40mm) with my other figures (40-42mm) but spotted these interesting mixed characters amongst the myriad scales and variations of painted and unpainted railway and architect figures …
… and so I bought their last two packs (for now) https://www.modelscenerysupplies.co.uk
They are great fun and I shall put them aside for future projects.
