I am not g scale, only 00 1:76, and I adapt figures all the /time, your bigger figures by comparison should be a total doddle, again my figures are inside, but weatherproofing them with say dulcote varnish should be perfectly possible, enclosed are some before and after pictures, most I can give as a full process if anyone is interested in trying this.

cowboy, Clint Eastward, man,horses, tissue for cape, now your size a stiffer paper finish would likely be better but I think kitchen roll would do it, you just need an excuse to add him :D
