    Having bought a number of sets of unpainted Preiser figures (HO scale) in the past, I have been frequently frustrated by the lack of information on which figures actually come in the packs. This is complicated by the fact that the photographs of the unpainted sets in various catalogs, including Walthers, are inaccurate.

    I would therefore like to begin a database of the unpainted sets, with cross listings to the prepainted versions of the figures (including the set name and Walthers part number). Hopefully this will be a useful resource for people interested in the unpainted figure sets.

    Please feel free to add posts on the unpainted sets not listed here. These are all HO scale, but lists from other scales would be useful too.

    Glad you are able to sort out things for the HO figures.

    When you posted this, it reminded me of my experience with a set of N scale Preiser figures I got through Walther's. Just having been listed as "unpainted sitting/standing figures", on sale for around fifteen bucks, I added them to an order I placed a few months ago. It turns out they were only in two different poses with no varitations and the figures were in three parts and had to be assembled. There was no detail to them, like they had to be dressed as well.:oops: I had no idea what I'd ever use them for until the kitbash challange came along. I mixed up the body parts (sitting arms with standing legs), painted them all green and they became the star LGM of my diorama submission.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    There's no way that I would buy unpainted N scale figures again. I love working in N scale, but I draw the line there.:D

    This is an excellent idea Jac(?). I have painted over 600 of the Preiser figures but I have discarded the boxes and dumped the sprues into a "figure box", about 250 more. I do still have the information for set # 16343, Passers-by, Spectators. Here it is:
    0181 7-children with optional backpacks (2 of these)
    00216 6-standing adults with positionable arms (2 of these)
    00284 5 adults, 1 child walking (2 of these)
    0171 6 adults standing, cool season clothing
    10326 3 two-person clusters walking, 2 with children
    10258 7 young (20ish) ladies, 3 with positionable arms (2 of these)
    10325 3 clusters people heavily dressed (2 of these)
    10291 7 standing and walking young adults (2 of these)
    10302 8 total persons standing, 3 clustered, some children (2 of these)
    10301 6 total persons, 1 child, 2 photographers with positionable arms
    10259 6 persons standing, looks suitable for outdoor BBQing
    0188 6 heavily dressed persons standing
    00116 6 m/f persons in business attire walking
    I enjoy the Preiser lines of people. I have modified only about 15 of them but see some future possibilities. I recognize the #16326 set that you listed, it's one that I have purchased. Some of the other individual sprues have come with other sets I have, the the 10309 bathers certainly stands out. I will add to this database in the future.
