Airfix wagon train (Pt II)

The bods part of the set.
The "guys". The very tiny one wearing the brown derby is supposed (I assume) to be a boy. One of them, (rear row) looks like he is feeding chickens ?????



The "gals". Again, the one which is supposed to be a girl looks a bit older than her size depicts.
Mrs Grump...oooh! The way she´s been photographed makes her look a bit like a well known 20th cenury dictator....and no, it´s not Charlie Chaplin :-)

The set, although old has few nice little details like Mr Potatoe eating his beans and holding a 3 pronged fork.
Strutting Joe carrying a....well it must be a sheep. What it´s physical condition is I don´t know, though I assume it´s not breathing.

  1. Nice! I always love seeing good civilian models. Have you noticed the Imex Pioneer set? I got a box, because they look like the characters from Little House on the Prairie (the book, not the TV show). I'm hoping they release a 1/32 version, so I can paint them for my daughter to play with.

  2. Great looking figures mate.they have to be one the worst airfix molds and you have done a blinder.
    Those IMEX pioneers are a great set and recomend you get you hands on them if you can.

  3. Thanks :-)
    The Imex bods..Mu haha mu haha! I got them last week...what for, I don´t know. They look good though...seem to be made of some kind of resin like plastic..very hard ? As far as I´m concerned they could have not put some many cows etc in and doubled up the single bods and bodettes.
    I might get the wagon next week...at ..HERNE!!!
    Cheers

    I just realised...the way I set them up for the photo makes it look like the one behind Mr potatoe is about to slap him around the back of his head !! :-)

  6. "Strutting Joe carrying a....well it must be a sheep."
    A sheep? It look like he's just shot his dog...

  7. I hope he hasn´t shot his dog...Strutting joe and his dog, Old Blue, have been best friends since...well for a long long time. Mind you, I can´t see Old Blue anywhere in the pics!!!!

    I wonder what dog tastes like?? :-)
