Has anyone found a good source for finding appropriate figures to place in your boat?

Hi!
I've borrowed with pride an idea from ballast who is doing a blog on his 12th scale Cygnus.
I have recently purchased two action figures from eBay and with a bit of paint and some yellow marigold gloves will be making them some oilskins.
Not sure what boat you want them for but action figures can be painted to suit. Total cost for my figures was just over £2 (marigolds acquired from the sink....)

I just purchased a Midwest Lobster Yacht which was built about 15years ago. The figures are for it. Looking for male and female passengers and family. I have the full sheet plan which says it is drawn on a 3/4"=1"scale.

My forth coming winter project, is to scratch build a second one of these beautiful boats using the model as a guide and template along with the plans.

Slowly but surely Graham, I am getting there !!! It's the detail that takes the time and being 1/12 scale there is a lot of it !!! I was hoping for a spring launch but it looks like late summer now !!! :(

Here is a Lobster Yacht. Not it does not need "pots" just some people, a few glasses of wine, cheese, and table to go with it.😎

Hi Guys
Our local Sunday market has wrestling figures at 6 and 3/4", but, they are solid plastic.
The legs, arms and wrist are all movable.
The weight is about 100 grams each.

I agree Ballast, tough job, low pay, harsh conditions... but such a rush when you start hauling and see a full cod end or pot...
