The little folks around my 1/43 models?

  Some have commented on the small figures that show up with some of my 1/43 models.  This afternoon I was modifying a couple to fit in the front seats of my in-progress project (more about that on a future day, I hope), and that led me to look around for something more appropriate.  Between my junky work shop and my over-crowded storage closet, here's some of what I was looking through:

   There are several firms that make these figures, both metal and plastic, varying in scale (I prefer 1/43 to 1/48), painted and unpainted, and so forth.  Some are not inexpensive (Arttista comes to mind), but those characterizations are more complex than the "50 for $5" groupings from China.  The last are great for alteration, and two of those are what I am modifying for a model right now.  I most often find these figures on eBay.   

   Just thought someone might have a little interest.  Enjoy!

Great selection David. I like the idea of cut and paste to shape the little people for sitting etc.

Don't they get hurt rattling around in that box?

Not to mention social distancing.

I learned from you that gluing them to clear plastic base makes them display and photograph much better that the fender washer I was using before.
