Re: Z Scale People
You may be interested to know that the Merten figures have been re-
issued. I realize that they are still European, but their quality has
improved considerably, and approaches that of Preiser. I recently
ordered several sets (0818, 0820, 0859, 0870, 0908, 2268, 2400) and
they are quite good. You'll need to make sure you're getting new
stock--all-clear boxes with white inserts and blue Merten logo--as
opposed to older stock (tan or green plastic box).

modelling older eras as they are a bit smaller than the presier figures
most of which appear to be 1970s/1980s people (that is tall, but still thin)
I could mutter about the lack of Edwardians in top hats, 'youth of
yesteryear' (think Dickensian) etc figures in a lot of scales ....
