Ok, Iím reviving this old thread because th the same Chhinese. Figures appear in the FX mimni-series Trust. Donald Sutherland stars as J Paul Getty in a fact-based story about his grandsonís kidnapping. In episode 1, Sutherland is seen with a scale model (maybe a model of th future Getty museum?). The figures in the model are these Chinese figures! So Hollywood went cheap and bought $1 Chinese figures rather than hire a sculptor or buy better figures from any of the better. G Scale sources.

But I don't recall anybody doing a 'review' of the product in their hands. I thought I'd get some sitting figures to populate the seats of some 1/20 Jackson-Sharp coaches I'm repainting & detailing. I figure that they could at least populate some of the 'aisle-side' seats, and hopefully, maybe, some window seats if you didn't look too closely?

So has anybody tried this? Do they look okay using the 10-foot rule? Five-foot? Or are they just too 'out of scale'?

Yer' thoughts, please..

Thankyew,
Look good to me, easy 10' rule and maybe 5', Bill. The red combine is kalamazoo, the other is my scratch built, what I call, grover caboose ( kind of like a drover caboose but is bringing citrus grove workers back from the orchard).

Thanks for the tip. Just bought a set of these for my cars plus some other from the same vendor. I think with a little bit of painting, most will be good enough. I will put the better ones closest to the window.
