    They've got to be in the Walther's book. They should be right next to the Preiser listings.

    M E R T E N makes a great set of drunks stumbling down the street too.

    George is right!
    Pages 642-646 in the 2001 Walther's.
    Drunks, musicians, & my favorite: "chubby singles"! (no kidding)
    Why, a fellow could model an NMRA convention with all that! [​IMG]

    Chubby singles? I have to get those! I do have their "Portly Couples" which look pretty funny tottering along the platform with a Red Cap ahead.

    You know something funny, PREISER makes a set of "American Figures". They have a conductor figure which EXACTLY resembles an older cousin who was a conductor on the Canadian Pacific. What makes the set funny, and "American" for Europeans, is that all the figures are taller than the average PREISER Euro/German people, and some German artisan has given the figures a notable GUT!

    Should we be insulted? Only if litigation would lead to an out of court settlement of several hundred painted figures each! Bring on the Corpulant American Couch Potatos! [​IMG]
