elminero67,

The set you were thinking about was put out by Pegasus Hobbies:

https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/Scale_Figures/PGS00007007/product.php?gclid=Cj0KEQjwzpfHBRC1iIaL78Ol-eIBEiQAdZPVKlPSjmilW2ZIQbl5dGEHr-jm9Y9SICzaf55br-pKyegaAh158P8HAQ


I've been making my own hats in 1/35 scale by using a helmet as a form and receipt paper for the hat.  The receipt paper is thin and forms easily.  I soak the receipt paper with a little water and white glue.  Once dry I can trim it and do any forming it might need.  A little more white glue to keep everything in place.  After it dries just paint it a color of your choice.

I'm not up to making my own figures; my fingers don't work that well.  I do use military figures appropriately altered.  I troll eBay and pick up cheap sets.

Ah, THAT scene where the infamous Sorfeetz Brothers ( They never wore boots!) lynched that representative of infernal combustion...

Interesting thing about the Pegasus kit, is the split between Western and Chinese miners. The figures are well detailed though.

A quick search on eBay shows one going for $16.50 including postage.  Might find them cheaper somewhere else.  Be careful when ordering a set...apparently they made them in 1/72 scale also.

The Pegasus kits are good quality and have bits and pieces-like the ore cart, that make it worthwhile.

It's a nice kit with well sculpted figures which I used for a small gold panning scene at the creek in Updah.

A couple of the kneeling figures were co-opted by UPS (Updah Palaeontology Society!) to investigate what they thought was a Didesaurus unearthed at the dig - but was more likely a long dead mule!
