I've been messing about with 'prototype' 1/48th characters for some months now, mostly in response to some lovely collectors of my 1/24th little people, who have been seduced by the super 1/48th houses that are becoming more available. 1/24th scale is challenging but fun - whereas 1/48th is challenging - so I kept abandoning the idea.
I haven't reached the 'fun' bit yet but I am pleased to have finally created the first ones.
Apart from creating enough detail in both sculpture and costuming, I wanted them to be as poseable as the two larger scales characters I make. My hand was rather forced by my other half - the furniture-maker of the team - when he presented me with a chest of drawers, bureau, tallboy/wardrobe and bed in 1/48th scale!!
So after much huffing and puffing I have made them and they can sit up and down and wave their arms about!!
They measure just under 1 1/2" tall, and being so tiny are a little hard to 'stage' and photograph as well as I would like - so apologies for the blutak. Anyway I hope you'll be interested to see both the new little characters and the furniture. Both will be on sale from 30th August - first of all at our next fair. This is the Dolly's Daydreams Dollhouse Fair at Thame Leisure Centre, Thame, Oxon. on Bank Holiday Monday - 30th August.
Thanks for looking folks!
