Greetings. Can anyone recall the manufacturer/retailer of a G scale seated Nun please?

There is one in the Elita range, I think - rather crude (in the sense of basic, rather than naughty!) figures that Glendale stocked for a while, though I think they've got rid of the last of them via clearance offers.
Search for Elita and you may find the Nun you are looking for!

I think Preiser do a standing Nun also, but I don't recall a seated one from them.

Slightly off topic ;
I seem to remember that in the 1960s there was a 4mm modeller who made wonderful models of Great Western models. He was one of the first modellers to 'populate' his carriages....most compartments contained a nun and a couple of sailors.....just the thing for a Plymouth express !

Silly question, a bit nosey as well, but why a nun? It's not a CONVENTional request:giggle:

Those two seem to be from a different part of the Elita G scale range - the ones that Glendale used to stock were these:

Those two from the "Collection" range do look to be better figures than the "That's Life" range....

Please, do not all add Nuns to your coaches..

We don't want people making a HABIT of it!

Hat, coat, door...

One of those nun figures in the "European" site looked to my eyes to be wearing tan Doc Martens boots!
