It seems like 1/24 scale crew figures are like hens teeth as I have been unable to find any. Does anyone know were I might find a supplier.

Hi, Try Deans Marine, they have quite a few 1/25 figures and a good choice.👍

I think 1/24 or 1/2"/foot is a dolls house scale.

The usual scale for dolls houses are 1/12th or 1" to the foot.😊

Not always as 1/24th is a very popular scale, my wife uses this scale.
Cheers Colin.

The figures I am looking for are for a Perkasa 1/24 scale MTB who usually wore white polo necked sweaters and duffle coats. they are very hard to find.

I built a scale model of my house in 25/1 and found dolls house bits at 24/1 very useful.

Super looking detailed model, if you ever feel the urge to slate the roof I have available 500+. 1/12th scale pre cut vinyl slates, which are free plus postage. Pm me if interested.
Cheers Colin.

The pitch on that roof looks like it was once thatched. Nice model.

Thanks for the offer! but have now stopped the building after fitting windows,yes it was thatched but now tiled,over 500 years old with chimneys fitted later and floors inserted.My wife and I joined a buildings archeology group and measured and drew the house in 1/25 scale and it seemed a good idea to build a model,(we found the priest hole by doing this)pics of a wattle and daub wall in the roof real and model.Sorry for the thread drift now back to boats!

My friend lived in a very similar house in Suffolk, dating back to the 14th C. He couldn't afford the cost of thatch insurance, so had it redone in second hand pegtiles. Looked lovely. We had to burn 25 tons of old mucky thatch that had lived under the corrugated tin for years. All in one long weekend!

Adriansfigures are no longer trading, Adrian sold to Mountfleet
who took all his mouldings and have now produced more, cannot find figures on their website, but they have them at the many shows they attend, might be worth giving them a call.😊

Shapeways have the greatest range of ship and boat crew members but they are expensive. You can ask for whatever scale you like, just need to discuss with the designer.

I got my U-boat crew done in 1/45 and a few of the characters with slightly modified poses.
For my WW2 MTB's I used Preiser German firemen figures and modified them. They are not available any more.

The figures you are looking for are also used in garden railroads 1/18-1/20 -1/24 you may find figures at a model train shop or on line for g-scale trains.
