Moving crew figures.
« on: November 14, 2010, 05:08:50 pm »

While at a local Model Railway shop I saw some figures, for HO guage I believe, and they moved!! A man with a shovel filled a cement mixer, one with a pickaxe worked, quite amazing! Not cheap, but on an appropiate scaled model something different Any of you members seen them as well?

The choice of subject certainly appears to be creative.  I'm not sure what sort of mind would want to incorporate some of those into a railway layout.

Pretty amazing though to be able to generate movement at that scale.

I wonder how many models will now appear with the couple in the bed or on the blanket on them somewhere  {-)

I saw a working shovel digger fully working, crane in OO gauge.  It was loading 'sand' into railway wagons on a model railway layout. The kit was about $800.00  It was superb!
