    I just received an order from Outland Models for some new figure poses in Z. This time I got the Cowboy Gunfighters figures. I got 9 figures for $3 on this sprue. An Indian posed to scalp a dude, a Cowboy on the ground crawling away from the Indian, shooters, and shot guys, and a standing guy with his hands tied behind his back getting ready to take one. The guns are fine details, and none were broken due to the excellent packaging. My box was even crushed in shipping, but it was an extra thick cardboard, and packed well in lots of bubble wrap. Also the sprue came with protection loops to hold the package baggie away from the details. Great idea!:

    There are build steps visible, but they are fine enough that they are still good enough to use. The next sprue I got was Country Farmers for $2.99. This set has 6 people, 2 horses, and a cart full of supplies:

    Next up is a sprue of Railroad Maintenance Workers for $4.99. It came with 2 Handcars, one with a guy operating it, 8 workers with tools, a large air compressor, and a weird roller gizmo. Nothing broken here either:

    And last was this sprue of 4 Cowboys Riding Horses for $2.99. 3 of them have guns, and one is pointing to a guy tied up laying on the ground ready to take one. All 4 sets and no broken people, impressive. Fair price too!:

    I got 2 sets of the Farmers, 2 sets of the Gunfighters, and one set of the other 2 items. If you want different figures than have been available elsewhere, and for a decent price albeit for a fragile material, they have lots of stuff to choose from. My order took 3 weeks from China, and shipping was only $4.

    Only Robert Ray could get away with starting a post about "Interesting Outland/Overland Models". Used to be quite cheesy stuff, at one time. I'm kidding, of course.

    They do look interesting.... I'll also add a bet you do some cool things using 'em.

    Nice figures! Outland Model's offerings are much better since they upgraded to a resin 3D printer. I got the "modern car" vehicle set and they are pretty nice.

    Me too! I've been resisting them for a long time. The price is right. Maybe I can make a small "crowd" from a couple of bunches of them. As a modeler I have resisted putting people and animals into my builds simply because they look too static and almost always too colorful. IMHO. Jim

    Most of my stuff arrived warped and the detail low (large digital steps) plus soft, varied contours where they certainly would be sharp from Shapeways, etc. The main issue is cutting off all the supports without breaking off the good parts !

    No like button on this phone app, either...

    Edit button just appeared. Seems software related. Hummm!

    On my ZTE Blade smart phone I have to turn the phone sideways, landscape, to see the quote button. You might want to give it a try to see if it will work on your phone.

    My Galaxy 5 (yes, it's old) does not show me the "LIKE" button either, until I turn the phone 90degrees (horizontal) and then it appears. Try turning your phone to have a larger screen and the "LIKE" button may, r may not appear!

    those are all nice figures! one thing I have not been able to draw well! but there are some on Shapeways which I think are nicely detailed. but with there price changes can't beat the prices you got your for. these were done by another shop owner. I find trying to remove the support wires on those small figure is a real challenge. I have had pieces break with trying to remove the spruces but with your talent rray! they will come out great! here is a photo with two sets of 9 figures! I had no spruces to cut and no cutting from spruce! they came the way you see them!
