I'm looking for civilians in 60s, 70s dress for my 54mm Doctor Who project. I'm especially looking for female figures that could stand in as the Doctor's companions. Any thoughts?

Plastic or metal would be fine and I'd actually love pre-painted if anything is out there. Here's what I've tried so far:

1.) Lemax these tend to be too Victorian. Possibly more searching is needed.

2.) "Farm" figures. Not the best option (especially since most of them seem to be carrying packages, milk pails or sowing seeds and such; though there is joke potential with that last one, I see it…)

3.) Austin Powers or Scooby Doo figs might work in a pinch, but all seem to be too big.

Part of the fun in gaming in this scale is the hunt for proper figs, so I'll keep working on it. Still, any thoughts would be much appreciated!

The Marx Untouchables range has a female flapper type. She should pass muster with a proper paint job. It is generally more cost effective just to buy the whole set instead of trying to find a figure or two.

Perhaps…

has something? But Gauge 1 railway stuff should be in the right neck of the woods.

Paddy, that's a great lead. Order placed for several of their pre-painted sets which give me a good selection of female types. Ordered from here: link Thanks again!

79th, yes, I've looked over that Untouchables set. Might be another source down the line.

Thank you both!

Preiser has some unpainted passengers and a decent range of other figures which sit roughly between 1955 and 1970.
