I just got an ugly reminder of how easy it is to log one's self out on this site while making a response to someone else's post.

Anyway, I wanted to mention a possible answer for those of us who have smaller passenger cars, especially those with seats and lighting but no peeps. The answer can be HO or, better yet, S scale people when you can get 'em.

Gunrunner John suggested the idea to me for my Wabash Lionel small coaches and I did the same for my "streamlighting" small K-line cars. You may, like me, choose to spiff up the interiors a bit with inexpensive acrylic paints you can get just about anywhere. For smaller settings, it may be just the thing & it's easy and fun.

Looks good. I put some in my passenger cars, but I'm still looking to buy more seated people.

They look good! Realy good!

I use 1/64 (S Scale) people in a lot of my passenger cars - they simply fit better, as you observed. Also when you want to put a driver inside a diecast auto or pickyp, they usually work best.

John;

What about 3D printing. You could use it for other projects also ?

Dan
The 3D printing isn't the issue, it's painting all those tiny figures to make them look decent! Besides, you have to find the source material, I'm not up to doing a CAD design of a variety of seated figures.

Lee, where do you find S-scale figures in quantity without breaking the bank?
