IntroductionNOCH has released this set of six TT scale (1/120) figures: Travelers. They are set 45225.
The FiguresNOCH packs these six figures in a form-fitted cradle held in a clear hard plastic case.
Each figure is well molded as a single piece. The poses are natural. Not all of the poses balance well. You will have to use a touch of glue to keep them upright. I suggest a tacky glue.
I posed the figures with TT vehicles. They look like good scale height.
DetailTT scale isn't the largest scale, nor is it the smallest. Facial detail is lacking although hair contours are present.
Each figure has unique clothing, including a man in a tie.
PaintingEach figure comes factory painted. They look good from the "three-foot rule" although under magnification some of the colors stray from the molded details. That does not concern me because it is not noticeable in this scale. Models who want to enhance this models with shadowing or different colors should have no problem doing so.
ConclusionTravelers by NOCH is a good set of figures for modelers of TT. They feature good molding with detail, and nice painting.
These figures are not self-balancing, not surprising for the scale and some of the poses.
I like this small set of figures and recommend them.
Please remember to mention to NOCH and retailers that you saw this set here - on RailRoad Modeler.
