Afternoon all. Finally have some figures for my trains, ordered a couple of packs of Carlo Spirito's poseables figures from Back2Bay6 yesterday morning, turned up this lunchtime so am very impressed! Love the figures, they're very realistic, spent the afternoon playing around with them and the loco making little cameos
Thought I'd post a couple of the photos so you all can have a look, I don't think the locos too far out of scale now when posed with the figures, especially as the seated figure just sits nicely on the backsheet of the cab-don't worry though, I will get around to making a handrail there instead! Complete with wooden seat I think for the driver to sit on.
First pic shows the figures grouped round the loco. Think the driver will be named Fred, whilst the manager is the guy with his hands in his pockets leaning against the locos side tank. The chappy with the moustache is going to become Bill I think, but can't think of a name for the gentleman with the ciggy-any suggestions guys?
Another view of the same figures, this time from the back of the loco.
And finally, a little cameo of Fred and Bill having a natter about how the old girl is doing-think I'm going to name the loco Elsie after me grandmother, but I'm not quite sure yet.
Anyhows, let me know what you think of them
