Want the realism of the blossoming ranges of 3D-printed footplate figures but think you won’t be able to paint them well enough? Well, worry no more, for Hardy’s Hobbies now offers its footplate figures ready-painted in both 4mm and 7mm:1ft scales. They won’t break the bank either, with prices starting at £5 for a ‘OO’ gauge figure.
Hardy’s Hobbies has added new figures to its range, including Pullman Car attendants, policemen and shop keepers in long overcoats. These new figures are available in all scales from ’N’ upwards. It has also developed a range of six figures in realistic footplate attire specifically to suit Hornby’s diminutive ‘OO’ gauge Peckett ‘W4’ 0-4-0ST.
