Thank you! That sounds like a good line to keep in mind with Thanksgiving coming up ("More, please!") :) ... trying to hustle up some work before the holiday and definitely looking forward to a modeling break before too long! ("Soon, please!" -- I hope!) :bg:

Took a look at their site, lots of really nice stuff, but can't find any prices even when I went to a local dealers site.

For the amount of detail, I expect that the prices are high--but how high are they?

I know that you use Aust $--but easy to convert.

I checked the new figures out also, I will be getting some. My problem is that the ladies seem way too nice for such a funky place as Mogollon. Maybe if I put some boots on them and got rid of the nice hats? I imagine that SQUADRON will have these, if not then my old buddy J. Sullivan will be able to find them. He is good about that.

Thanks, Geoff!  I saw that announcement and look forward to the release of these figures.  The Masterbox figures can be a little "fiddly" to get the bodies assembled neatly (and then some putty is required) ... but they're inexpensive and the facial detail is good ... as well as overall proportions, hands, etc.

"Miss Millie" (shown above with old Curt Mudgeon) came from a Masterbox set ...



Millie came from the set shown above (and linked below), which includes four figures and sells for about $10 + shipping from a discounter ...

Herb -- The Masterbox kits are widely available and inexpensive as figures go.  I've made a number of purchases from the Scale Hobbyist site ... discount prices and generally reasonable shipping:

http://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/Scale_Figures/MBL00003514/product.php?kw=celebration



Woodie -- Perhaps you'd like to see how the hombres would fair against some machine gun girls?  I've been participating in a thread over on the FSRR where we've collected info on various 1/35 CIVILIAN figures and 1/35 FEMALE figures (ranging from naughty to nice) ... have a look thru all the pages when you get a chance:

http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?topic=1401.0

(Note:  Technically the thread is "1/35 and larger" ... so watch out for the 1/24 scale Amazon women and choose carefully!) :)

Dallas-look what those Master Box ladies are up to now:




Yep, they work at the Gila Hotel and are there day & night. I do like the girls with guns, they would fit in nicely also.

Well, somebody was waaaaayyyy overdue for a personal modeling break ... so, tonight I made a nice, safe asbestos mat to put under that big clunky stove ... and a tin backsplash to keep the crap ... er, grease & stuff ... off the wall. You can see all the irregularities in the homemade tin when you look this close ...



But, I think that once all the "foreground" stuff shapes up, it will become "just" a background texture as intended. Think I'm gonna cut the height down by about a row ... and, in case it isn't incredibly obvious ... everything's kinda jury-rigged and crooked and stuff at this point! :)
