Scenery specialist NOCH
makes many figure sets in several scales. This is the N scale set Railway Construction Group
, item 36276
The setRailway Construction Group
is a set of six figures and an instrument. Each item is factory assembled and painted. The subjects are:
Tool (Fuel can, arc welder?)
Power tool operator
Man with shovel
Man kneeling with tool
Man swinging maul
Molding is remarkably fine and the figures have good detail. I found no molding flaws. The figures have poses that look realistic.
As good as they look, they are just too tiny to stand on their own. I could not make any stay upright.
The set is packed in a form-fitted cradle for each model. That cradle is held inside a top/bottom clear plastic box.
The tiny figures and tools have good detail for the scale ( 1/160 ). The skill of the painter accentuates the molded detail. Each figure has small bands of silver reflective tape painted on their hi-visibility coveralls.
These lilliputian gandy dancers feature good detail and natural poses. The factory painting is very good.
My only concern is not surprising - the figures need glue to remain upright. I believe that N scalers will enjoy this set for their layout track in top shape. Recommended.
Thanks to NOCH for providing this set for review.
