G scale figures

Recommended Posts

Hi,

does anyone know if it possible to get very quality figures in Gscale, to suite an office scene in the 60s period?
thanks

"G scale" runs from 1:32 to 1:16. What scale are you looking for?

Hi Fred,

thanks for your help here, Im not sure about the scale, it’s not actually for a railway, it’s for a theatre set model.

The majority of my work is Architectural , mostly in the hobby but a good friend who is a singer in my Band is a play write and he’s asked me to put together a theatre set with some of the Actors on the stage with props.

It is based in an office scene in the 60s period.

4 and 7mm is too small a scale, so it has to be something of the size of the figures I added to the Platform on the Much Wenlock model I built, which was for the 3” gauge modellers, I think it was 13.5mm scale but could be wrong.
 

thanks

I think that 1:22.5 is then wat you are looking for. The are a number of suppliers, the largest is Preiser (https://www.preiserfiguren.de/showpage.php?Startseite&SiteID=1).  They have a 26 page catalogue with 1:22.5 figures, the catalogue can be downloaded but their website is German. If you go to this page: https://www.preiserfiguren.de/showpage.php?Katalogdownload&SiteID=128 and look for

you can download the pdf catalogue. They have figures for all eras.

A fellow Gauge '3' member models early Victorian railways and has a few Modelu figures on his layout. They are very good and available in a range of sizes (3D printed) but get a bit expensive in the larger ones.  Although G3 is 1:22.6 scale (13.5mm) we are so near to LGB 'G' at 1:22.5 that it makes no visual difference. 

 

Geoff has photos of his 'Pre-1860' models on Western Thunder here:
