1:96 scale figures for my Pilot Boat Build


Recommended Posts

Jaeon,

 

Nils is correct. Here is a photo of my HO scale stern wheeler with HO figures from Preiser. They sell a ships crew (figure

in yellow slicker) along with others that may fill the bill. Also, go onto the Seaport Model Works site, they may have some

also.

Preiser HO figures are the best on the market I think. As noted, they are nominally 1/87 scale, but the difference in height to 1/96 scale is wiith the variation of human height.

Preiser also does various unpainted sets that are a good starting point for some 'surgery', i.e. conversions. Here is an example for what I did with some mid to late 20th century figures: http://www.maritima-et-mechanika.org/maritime/models/botter/botter.html#Creating_the_Staffage
