Got a few more done. Policeman, Porter and the two PW Gang chaps. As you can see the Hardy's/ModelU figures on the left are much more realistic in pose and slightly smaller. Not really happy with the buttons on the PC's tunic and the Porter's waistcoat. Might paint over them and try a pin instead of a cocktail stick.

I have tried Matt varnish [Ochre Jacket Man] and a Model Wash [PW chap to his right].

The journey continues.

The gentleman at the back left, of the right hand group, looks like he is about to bust some dance moves.

Ha-ha. I think he's a driver leaning on the window frame and tinkering with something technical inside the cab. R-

Here they are in situ. A bit of Tacky Wax to clear up and apologies for the hastily arranged [and slightly wobbly] scenery. R-

Looking very good Roger - especially the policeman and porter.

Thanks Steve - they are great models and easier to paint than I thought. I need really to improve my range of colours by mixing up some of the standard ones I have used here. R-
