These scratchbuilt ones here:


That guy looks like a true example of serious determination.

I don't know, but he's good.

Hmm. I wonder if he's still doing these and is posting his progress elsewhere.

Only thing missing is not enough outhouses.

The figures look to be 1/72 scale or so. I would think about 20mm size. I use HO scale with my true 25mm figs.

I think the figures are by Giant, poor quality knock offs of Herald figures. They were roughly 20mm to 25mm in size.

Fantastic set of buildings. Must have stayed up late, or skipped a day at work to get those done. The gallows is particularly elegant.

Sorta reminds me of the Campbell Scale Models wooden structure kits for Model Railroaders back in the day.

I had those figures as a kid. The hollow horse and riders with pins on the legs that insert into the horse's belly. Definitely 1/72.

In 15mm there are the Blue Moon old west ones in resin:



And there are scores of paper models which can be re-scaled to fit:

My very first miniatures were a bag of those, which my brother brought back home from one of his trips and gave to me. I must have been something like 4 or 5 years old.

Does anyone make or sell those anymore?

Those exact figures were made by Giant back in the 1960s




and even better here:

I am pretty sure I got mine out of cereal boxes.
I can not see this at work, but I think these are the exact ones I had:

You can find them on eBay and such:

Wow, those are definitely the ones. Though I remember them being smaller than most HO stuff back then.

Thanks so much!
