Hi all,

I am a new member, working on Occre's (1:24 scale) Adler steam engine kit. I am looking for some suitable figures for the cab. I found a stock photo (attached) that shows just what I'm looking for. I have been Googling around but all I could find was a Preisser railway crew, but it wasn't really appropriate to the age (mid-19th century), and I've never bought any figures before, so I don't know about the quality. Does anyone have any ideas. Adler conductor.jpg

Thanks. Yes, I managed to track down one of the members who made the same model, and his suggestions and photos were very helpful.

Welcome Carleroo, there's quite a contingent of Canadians on here, do youknow if you're close to any of them?
By the way, pictures of your progress would be great!

Thanks for welcoming me to the group. I will certainly post photos of my progress. And, I'm sure there are some like-minded people nearby :)

I agree. I'd love to see your progress, and to meet up with a fellow Torontonian model builder would be a big deal for me, Carl. Cheers!

Just posted some of my progress on the Adler. It would be good to meet up - maybe post Covid! Cheers, Carl
