I have looked at a few dollhouse sites..i know starwars figures are too large... everything I find is too big or to short >>:-(was just thinking the members might know of an oddball sight I might not have heard about.... also forgot to mention the above video is a full dark night run..as you can see the deck is bare and needs some life

My new fishing boat is built to 1/20 scale and I will be using 1/24 scale pit crew figures for my build. Just checked the net and 1/24 scale animals are available depending on what you need. You could contact Mountfleet models in the UK. He has taken over the range of figures from Adrians figures hope this helps.

Hi. I finished building my 1/20th "Hellen" about six months ago. I have used 1/24th scale figures from Adrians Marine Figures, now taken over and sold by Mountfleet. They are a bit short in the leg, but as they are all sitting down they don't look too much out of scale. These came as a set of three.

Tamiya did 1/20th plastic mechanic figure in overalls to compliment their car model.  Have a look on Fleabay.
