New Loco Crew

Posted On August 1, 2017 at 3:25 pm by / 15 Comments

Modelu customer Chris Chewter is a volunteer fireman at the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway and recently brought his loco crew gear along to ExpoEM and the GCR Model Event to be scanned.   Though there are many crew figures in the range, with this selection I’m hoping to expand the options for shed scenes and natural footplate poses.   Chris’ scans are also very suitable for smaller, low roof cabs.

All the figures are now available via the webshop.

  1. Fantastic figures but one problem for my era (1962)- most of the models are too fat! I remember steam crew (even the drivers) being more wiry (and not so tall either). Photos from the days of steam bear this out.
    Let’s face it, if you spend 48 hours a week shovelling, you ain’t going to have a fat belly!

  2. Yes I have also noticed that the figures being based on people today are rather well proportioned compared to those in the 1950s. But they are the best available ! It will be great if you can do some about a scale 5’6″-5’10” tall with about a 32″ waist. Many thanks though for your superb range to date.

    1. Hi Richard, thank you for the feedback, I agree and this year there will be some new figures coming with these characteristics. Happy new year!

  3. Hello From New Zealand
    Can you please advise if produce both railway and civilian figures in 35th scale?
    Please also advise cost per figure.

    1. Hi there,

      When you go to the crew product page you can chose either left or right hand drive as well as scale. If you need a hand please let me know how I can help.

      Cheers!

  4. oops pressed return to early. Need a left hand driver. So regulator is worked with the right hand. Are there any plans for seated drivers as are required for BR standards.

    1. Hi John,

      Thanks for your message, you can chose left or right hand orientation for all the figures on their product page. If you need any further help please let me know,

      Cheers

  5. Well done, well done! At last! Interesting comments on proportions – lots of my family worked on GWR you wouldn’t have wanted to have called my Uncle Bill (heavy gang 81b or rather 141) scrawney or any of the Andrews brothers ‘Tich’ or you’d be wearing a ‘Copper top’
    Cheers Chris
