Hi chaps,

Been looking about for N Gauge people.

Shocked at the cost and seems mainly only painted available.

I paint wargame figures to pay for my rail hobby so can easily handle unpainted.

I'm after period figures for 30s/40s LMS/LNER but few seem to be available.

Any ideas where I can get some at reasonable price for the period?

Thanks,

Cudders
Hoping to make a start on the layout before Xmas!!

Have you looked at P & D Marsh, Cudders?
They do some that would fit the bill such as item E30 Coal lorry + crew (introduced 1931) and some farm workers and they all require painting........

Preiser do bulk packs of unpainted figures.

They are to European N Scale but this is an advantage if you are looking for seated figures to go inside a coach.

Have a look at Modelu 3d. Not cheap but they look good and I've seen a few reviews.

Both my sons were into Warhammer and Dad was called on to paint quite a few strange figures when they were younger.

B H E have packs of the Chinese painted people they are in packs of 10 seated passengers at £1 allthough very brightly coloured they do show up well in coaches ,depending on what make of coach you might still have to cut off their legs to fit them in .
If you want quite a few I’m sure Ray can offer you a discount .

I think you'll struggle to find model figures that are readily identifiable as being of a specific era, other than uniformed figures.

 :hmmm: Would anyone be able to tell the era of a figure inside a N gauge coach? Figures posed outside (i.e.: on a platform) could be made more era specific by toning down colours for older eras and maybe adding a bit of modelling clay to lengthen and widen skirts.

For inside coaches I use cheap Chinese standing people with there legs chopped off (not found a use for the legs yet!).

Searching is an imperfect art. However, with the gods of searching gazing kindly upon me, :D I found these threads:

 Where is the best place to get n scale people
