Does anyone own any of these? Are they compatible with ACTA and AIP figures? I'm referring to the covered wagons.Want to use them for Zulu Wars since I can't find any ox carts,etc in 54mm.

Thanks,

Pete

Yup, they're compatible. I own a few from various CTS Alamo playsets.

They are basically the Marx wagon with a back tailgate.
No size difference at all.

Sounds good. Thanks! Are they wide enough to place figures on?

Yes. And the CTS comes with a rolled up canvass top. You can have figure shooting out of the wagon, with that top on.
They are also a harder "soft plastic" that takes paint pretty well. Especially if primed correctly.

Very easy to spray paint your main color and the use a dark wash to bring it together.

You should be able to pick some up for between 20-25 bucks on Ebay. Or from CTS themselves.
