7/8ths scale Figures

After a long absence, I am reviving my figure business, “La Bella Figura”.
I will be selling a series of “limited edition” figure casting kits in 1:13.7 (7/8”/ft.) scale.

Belle Lane - "Little Andi"

Does anyone else remember fondly this thread about building in card, by a chap going as "Little Andi"? It was back in '09 I believe. Mike Mott did an article in the "Gn15 Tome" about him too. http://gn15.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5199&start=50 I was just wondering wh...

Taiwanese mining loco

Many years ago, Tom Yorke made and sold kits for a tiny Taiwanese mining loco. Internal combustion, open cab, visible engine. Anyone have information of pictures related to the model or prototype?

Re: Huge tools (sorry)

Andi - That's a very elegant and attractive design, and it seems so easy and compact to store.
However, it does look a bit delicate to "stand up to" (pun intended) any weight or the abuse
I would likely give it. I think I'd need sturdier wood and more braces, but that's just my view.

Where is Everyone?

Seems like all of you have taken a Holiday Vacation.
Either that, or I have been blocked by a moderator... :D
Right now I model in 1/12 scale, but I'm a Gnatterboxer in spirit.

P.S. I'm looking for copies of Brian Clarke's old pamphlets and books.

Re: 1n15 Lister Loco

Sorry, but you're mistaken about this loco making appearances in GB.
I live in Maine, USA, and haven't been in England for years.
Must have been some other 1n15 Lister. I'd like to see it myself.

Looking for a figure

I've seen this figure online, but I don't know the scale or source.
I think it's part of a larger series or set. Amazing realism!
If anyone can help me find it, I would appreciate it.

I went away for a week, and when I got back, everything was working normally again.
Maybe it just needed a rest... or a reboot?

No route... AGAIN.

Hi,
I sent a post here to this thread, but as yet I've gotten no response. I can't reply to it either, because I was denied viewing.
So, here's another cry for HELP! See other post for details.
