1/10 Scale Figures for Riva Aquarama
« on: April 26, 2020, 05:31:58 pm »

Hi All


I have a build under way for a 1/10 scale Riva Aquarama. I've been starting to look around for suitable scale figures, but can't see anything... Ideally I'm thinking 60s themed, to suit the boats era, so maybe James Bond or The Saint...


Anyone have any ideas..?


Thanks
David.

No idea where you'd get them but if you can fettle something I'd go for Peter Sellers and Britt Ekland theme (yu'd have to fettle anything to suit something specific I think).

...How would that not sum up 60's class!!  My phone will find the pic and website, but can't post a link -can't find it on the PC, though there's 2-3 pics out there, not just pinterest snaps.

Morning Rich


Thanks for this suggestion, 60s celebrity class for sure..!


I'm really hoping I can find a source of figures to either use, or make small mods to in order to get them looking right. Most of the 'action figures' I can find are 1/6 scale, about 12 inches tall, I need closer to 7 inch figures.

I also have a Aquarama.   I got suitable figures from a dolls house shop in a nearby town,  Pete

Hi Pete


Good idea re the dolls house figures.  Had a quick look online and can see some options to look at, thanks for that.


Are you pleased with your Aquarama..? Any pictures..?


Best regards.
David.

Dave I am not very proficient on the computer but I will have a go.   Glad you can find something,  Pete.

Check out Luis Holden; he does many figures, in any scale; he will do custom figures and custom scales;

there is a program called makehuman (or something like that) where you design your figure and can save it as a 3d printable file. I used that for the figure in my 1/12 scale model.
