    As a small scale (4mm) modeller I was wondering where one can get large scale figures somewhere between 1-30 and 1-24.

    I'm making a diorama at the museum I volunteer at at that is roughly the scale and i need a couple of people to populate it.
    Many thanks in advance of your replies.

    Alan,
    There are a number of Chinese firms advertising 1:30 and 1:32 figures on Ebay, after a repaint they fit in quite well on a British layout, Britains farm figures are 1:32 and a sharp knife works wonders.
    Corgi used to produce a range of diecast military figures in 1:32, I believe they were called One Foot Forward.
    All the above can be found on Ebay. The other source is Priesler (sorry for the spelling) these are 1:32 either painted or unpainted.

    John.

    Airfix do a range of 1:32 figures (just had a quick look on e-bay) those I've seen so far are military/historical but they may have some appropriate or ripe for conversion.

    A word of warning!!! only use Paypal whilst dealing with the figures from China as there have been instances where the credit card numbers have appeared on an in flight duty free trolley invoice, credit card fraud dont you just love it.
