Steve,
I am also a big fan of the unpainted Preiser figures. Like you, the faces are pretty plain, and look good except in closup photos.

BTW, I'm glad to see you post. I was starting to worry about your fate with the brush fires.

Thanks, Bruce, it was a little hairy Thursday night, but we nmade it though thanks to the great work by the firefighters.

I forgot to mention that in lieu of painting faces, I use just the teensie-weensiest touch of A/I wash around the eyes and lips, to add some depth, but only on figures that can be seen from the front.

Bob, do you know who makes the window washer figure and the cyclist? Are the HO? Neat little scene.

I think the window washer is a white metal figure from Lytler & Lytler, got it a long time ago.

The bicycle rider is a soft plastic military figure my son got tired of. I reshaped the hat and did some other changes to make it look more civilian. Don't think our oldest son will miss it, as he's now 38!

Mike,
Sometimes we make fun of the WS little people, but the checker player set is one of my favorites. George and I both ended up buying the welders set when we built our welding shops. That is another decent set.



BTW, Mike, this is the first time that I've noticed the "No Spitting" sign. Boy, your not fun.

Thanks everyone.

Dutchman;
I'm not really sure what it was, it was an embossed sheet that I found at my local hobby store a long time ago. I think it was from Kibri another company like that.
