    Hey gang, I was just wondering if anyone knows if there's any company that makes 1:24 scale things like MODERN city lamp posts, parking meters, fire hydrants, building sides, you know, stuff for dioramas not confined to standard sized display cases, but for, say, a tabletop. Is it out there, or do I have to make it myself from scratch? Can anyone point me in the right direction? I tried Google, and somehow, scrolling down the links, ended up at a Three Stooges message board and ran away screaming.
    anyhoo....little help? :confused2

    Oh man, that was funny!

    I'd like to find some 1:24 scale stuff to. I tried looking for human figurines once a while back and didn't find anything of the quality level I was looking for. Most of them were either military or 1950s themed.

    I think it would be awesome if someone custom made a Metroplex large enough for an alternator!

    Some G gauge model trains are 1:24 or 1:25 scale. be careful though, although they all run on the same track G gauge trains come in all different scales from as small as 1:30 all the way up to 1:20 scale. Most Bachmann G gauge train stuff seems to be around 1:24 scale and they are a large manufacurer, so I would start there.
