There have been a lot of questions lately on the size of figures to use for O scale. As far as I know there is not a thread that can be used as a source to help us all out so here goes.

I built a police type line up board and I am going to start posting pictures of the figures I have along with the company that made the figures. I have around 100 figures so it will take some time for me to get finished.

Everyone else feel free to jump in help.

Larry,

What figure would look and fit nicely in a Bachmann Porter? I was considering "S" scale.

Yes, that's him. The third man from the right. He did it.

These figures were seen at the Amherst show in Springfield, MA.
They do look almost real.
Almost being the key word.
The one fifth from the left looks particularly suspect.
