Does anyone know if 1/16 scale figures are available and or who makes them have been searching the internet with little success. If my maths are correct it works out to be a figure around 4inch high.
Thanks

Hi there, I have often used 1/12th scale dolls from my wife's collection. As they come in all sizes depicting various ages they can be dressed to suit your needs. Look at what's available in any dolls house shop. They also do a range in 1/24th scale. Hope you find your crew soon, cheers Colin.


Fair winds and calm waters,
COLIN.

going to take the figures with me tommorow to show the CAD guru at the work who will scan them for me and then see if he can then 3D print them at the bigger scale will get a few done at 1/24th as well ,he's not sure if the scanner can do them as separate parts head, torso ,legs and arms so may have to stick them temporarily and then scan will let you know how I get on and will post photo when printed ,also said he may be able to print a mould to cast them .Cheers Marky
