We produce a range of crew figures suitable for the Hattons OO gauge Andrew Barclay & P Class locomotives in partnership with ModelU 3D Scanning & Printing. We have scanned and produced 2 packs for each locomotive that accurately represent the crews and uniforms that worked the locomotives in poses that have been copied from period images. These have been crafted to fit exactly into the locos to enhance the look of the model.
The new batch, which is now in stock, incorporates a higher level of detail and durability. The models use 3D scanned locomotive crews in authentic uniforms for a variety of eras. Whilst designed for the Hattons Originals models these crews can be used in a wide range of steam locomotives and are provided unpainted.
(Please note: the locomotives are for illustrative purposes only and are not included with the figures)

All models will be supplied in grey resin which will accept either enamel or acrylic paint. We suggest a plastic primer is used before painting. For our samples, we used a mix of Vallejo and Railmatch paints.
ModelU has great experience scanning and producing accurate models of people and has created models for Pendon museum and the band XTC as well as thousands of individuals to recreate them in their chosen scale.
The photographs below show the previous batch of figures and were painted by Hattons staff. The figurines are supplied unpainted to the customer.
