    Excellent! I find that resin will render very fine details in N scale, but it's ludicrously fragile. I 3D printed The Doctor from Doctor Who in N scale, and it printed his sonic screwdriver thinner than a human hair. If you breathe on it, it'd break, though!

    Yours look great, and painted, too. Very nice work. The ones with the coffee cups just take the cake!

    I look forward to getting some of these printed now!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Wow those look great! And you've got pretty much all the poses you'd want for a work site. What modelling software did you use to create them? I've tried to do humans in Rhino3D but they just never looked right. I found one software a couple years ago that seemed to be able to do it but I never got around to learning it. Googling now it looks like there are more options these days so there may be hope for me yet. :cool:

    Wow, great work... don't forget that there are woman in the workplace also:). Also agree that you have really captured some really good poses. I really need to get my resin printer up and running. This probably gave me the final push to do that, thanks...

    Thanks for the compliments. I'll try and answer questions here. I cannot take credit for the base models for these. If you check the Workers Set 1 you'll see they are a remix of another Thingiverse artist. I did mod them to print better converted then to N, and not have so baggy pants. The other sets are these fixed versions I made with arms, legs, joints split off the models and swapped around with one another mirrored and rotated. I used MS 3D Builder for all of them.

    I did try to make a few female as well but could never get the figure right using my method, so they are all male still.

    Clearly The Master has tampered with your printer ..........

    Those are amazing. How in the world did you pain them? I have some figures from China, no way I could paint them though. Dig the ones with the cups on the boxes and I think a few are talking on their cell phones too?
