Yes, but the Chinese ones are soooo much cheaper and you can get a lot of them...

There are many other examples to be honest. This was the first one I came across.

What.... a carriage load of naturalists?

Not a pleasant thought :no:
I'm now having a 'daymare' at 10.06 a.m. :o

Why? :hmmm: It'll just be David Attenborough and his pals hanging out. :D

Yep, that's what the daymare was about :goggleeyes:

I think the naked ones might be naturists, naturalists like collecting plant samples etc,   :P

Samples of bush, that kind of thing?

You'd need the coat then you could be the Flashing Rear End Device.

Presier do some bulk cheap unpainted ones. For most coaches those or the chinese ones seem to do well and unless you've got lighted coaches with big clear windows if you just spray them brown it looks fine. I did have to cut them up for some coaches as the floors are too thick.

Hi there,

The Chinese figures I am sure will be fine for coaches, especially when you consider they will be moving most of the time.

If you have any left over, I have just done a tutorial here you may be interested in .....

http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=41053.msg502062#msg502062

It shows how to easily fit the figures into Oxford Diecast vehicles, so you no longer have magic cars that drive themselves  :D :D

With all best wishes
Kevin

Brilliant idea - thanks for sharing the tutorial, I'd already started slicing a dicing one of the packs off eBay to make my 153 full and standing in typical Northern Rail style - next stop one with a green shirt for the obligatory Stobart lorry
