    Hello,

    I am an installation artist who is putting together a show of scenes depicted in snow globes. I am trying to find the right figures to use but am having a little trouble and was hoping people might have suggestions.

    Here is what the basic outline looks like:
    3 snow globes
    First globe: three women standing around admiring a fourth woman's diamond ring
    Second globe: three women standing around admiring a fourth woman's iPod
    Third globe: three women standing around admiring a fourth woman's baby

    I want the three women to be all exactly the same. The fourth woman in each of the globes can be different.

    I might do something like 5 or 6 sets of these snow globes for the installation so if I could keep the cost of the figures down that would be VERY helpful

    I was thinking of something like 1/25 scale...something in that range, but doesn't have to be 1/25 so long as the figures are right.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    You might look for miniatures in "G" scale, that would be close to 1:25 (G scale is about 1:22) and you should be able to find everything except the iPod. A quick glance at the Woodland Scenics catalog doesn't turn up anything immediately suitable (http://www.woodlandscenics.com) but you might find more in the Walthers catalog, searching for G scale miniature figures.
