HO Scale Figures
Posted by starman on Sunday, May 29, 2022 7:25 PM

I am looking for a Walther's 528-15849 set of HO scale figures.  So far, I have been unable to locate a set.  Does anyone have a line on where I might be able to find such as set?  Thanks for your help.

I've purchased other items from this seller without problems.

Thank both of you for your reply.  That is exactly the set I am looking for.  I have previously searched eBay but I guess I just did not use the proper nomenclature.  I will be ordering right away.

I made a large group of beachgoers using the Preiser "Adam & Eve" figure set (I don't know the part number).  While this set is supposed to be nudes, it is rather easy to paint swimsuits on the finished figures.  Because you have to assemble these figures, you can create many more poses than available in pre-finished figure sets.

I too have usedthe Preiser Adam & Eve set (#16400), I used several of the supplied figure-parts to "kitbash" (or combo as the package states) certain figures I needed (e.g. a drummer and a keyboardist for a model indie band, a repairman, and others - all puttied and painted as needed (no nudes needed, although the initial lack of clothing made it was easy to, for example, represent the drummer in Alt-Rock cargo shorts and a muscle shirt).
I suppose when the cubic printers and the ilk get just a little better and cheaper kits like this may fade away, but for now it's a pretty useful kits

Warning, although it contains enough parts for 26, well humans, kitbashing means you won't enough for 26 normal poses, so the remaining parts - just throw them in your offal gondola...

What I would like but have yet to find is a set of HO scale Little League baseball players in uniform. Walthers makes two sets of non-uniformed sandlot players but I am building an Little League baseball field and would like to have players in a game but I don't know if anybody make such a set in HO scale.

Have you looked at Preiser? They seem to have the widest selection although I had no luck finding baseball players. I was trying to find a roller skating waitress for my 1950s drive-in restaurant. I think any female roller skater would work. Sonic restaurants still offer drive-in service but I have yet to see one that still has their waitresses on roller skates.

My wife bought me the Walthers Vintage Dairy Queen kit a couple years ago.  The photo on the box shows a couple servers inside that are perfect for it.  Think I could find any though?  No way.  No idea where they got them for the photo.  I can't understand why they don't include a couple on the parts sprue for the building.  Would be easy enough to do.
