24


24, second from the right is my favourite (very creative, very evocative) but they are all great. Thanks for showing these treasures!

Best wishes

... how DID you ever find that again?   :o

Are you still doubting my sleuthing-methods?! :lol:

What I meant was not the hat in itself... I think it looks weird to have the same bullet holes and stitching on all of them... even if it was a uniform...

With "corrected" I meant "erasing the holes" as well, so I follow your way of thinking in this! If I was good at drawing I would dare to draw some other Playmoish details on parts, unfortunately I am not gifted with drawing... 8}

Yes, that klicky is all amazing (and he doesn't have THAT hair!)

I should do a diorama with klickies with that hair only, I have plenty of it, you would love it :lol: By the way, for those who are like ??? and don't know what tahra means by that hair, here's an example:


It's not that bad.....

Thanks, like I told tahra, I was inspired by one of the wonderful customs of specialist. Click here (second picture) ;)

Wonderful variety of figures with some excellent customization ideas. Thanks for sharing them with us. I really need to get that Milka/Clown white shirt with the suspenders. It would be perfect for a second worker shoveling coal in the larger train engines.

Some nice customs in there  8-)

From the girls, one of my 2 favourites is the same one as the one mentioned by The Green Man ehrr St-John.
Good that Mr. "Ronald Tramp" was not around in the 19th century, he might have build a wall around her so we would never get to see her.
She could also function nicely as a Native from the Southern Americas (Peru, Bolivia, ...) from after the Conquista era.

From the others, my favourites are the ones that could also fit f.e. into the 17th/18th centuries (mostly the ones with the kneepants, the guy with "yelloworgange" high hat & short vest, and the woman dressed in grey)

US policy towards Mexico and Mexicans was far more aggressive than anything "Tramp" has even suggested, from the 19th century basically until Reagan.

I have done two Western diorama's already: North American desert and Western Town II (which was an update of an earlier version). I'm currently working on a third one: North American forest and I know it takes long, my apologies! But like some of us, I am a perfectionist and I'm still waiting for some parts to arrive. I will post some pictures soon! Apart from that, I have a new idea for Western Town III! I will not set up the farm anymore (due the lack of space) and instead I will build some more Steck buildings to create a larger town, I guess most of the figures might fit in! :cowboy:

I checked those out and woah, Western Town II left me speechless. The attention to detail in each and every shot is marvelous and the atmosphere feels so real. Can't wait to see how North American Forest and Western Town III turn out, too!

Thanks, Tim! It seems that no one recognised the cameo of George R. R. Martin so far in that picture (n 4). Now check again and compare:

Thanks, Hadoque! I said it before, Playmobil should do a Latin-American theme! I guess the age before and/or after the Conquista era would be great!
I really like the woman in grey (at least if you were referring to picture 30) as well, therefore I was glad that klicky 30145720 could still be ordered via the DS!

Thanks a lot! The dessert and forest are easier to create, because when I'm creating a town I also want to create the interiors of the houses, which means more details = more work! But it's relaxing to build new diorama's anyway!

What an amazing collection indeed  :love:

I am loving the yodel quartet, the New Orleans jazz band and the upper class couple !

I am also always "gobsmacked" to see how knowledgeable you Guys are when it comes to identifying the smallest accessory and its origin, I feel like such a novice compared to most of you, even after 10 years  :P

I know there have been US-Mexican troubles and wars in the past.
At the end of the Reagan-era, I saw and crossed (through a gate) a big wall in Berlin. But I wasnt aware of such a wall on the US-Mexico border back then. I thought the big modern fences, wires etc. on the US-border with Mexico - and the plans to expand that - came (much) later, but Im a European and could be wrong about it.
For the rest, I like to joke with names (and about politics of all kinds) and I do not want to stray off path here with a discussion about US politics.

Then I'd advise you not to bring politics up in the first place, particularly topics you know little about.
