Shortarse resin people

Last week, I posted a picture of creepy part-painted resin people. Someone kindly suggested that they would like to see the finished models, so here they are. After adding the eyes, a few detail colours and a wash of weathered black paint, they look pretty good and certainly have character.

But, and there is always a but, there is a problem. The tallest figure is 80mm high. At 15mm to the foot, this makes him 5 foot 4 inches high. In his shoes and hat.

That is officially (on this blog anyway) short.

Too short for locos. Too short to stand next to the other figures. Basically, too short for the garden railway.

Maybe they are Irish - then they could be the "little people" !
