The "little people" (G-scale)

Can anyone suggest the source for a realistic-looking British signalman in our scale?

The large expanse of "glass" in Monkton Priors box makes it difficult to disguise his absence!

Have you tried Pat Maslin?, they have a stall at every AGM, so it's good to encourage them.

 Bachmann actually make two ranges of very similar figures now. Those labelled G Scale are 1:22 and there fore right for G3. The others are bigger and labelled for 16mm scale, they are also for some reason twice the price !
 Caveat emptor as they say

S&D Models do a fab looking 1/24 scale BR driver (in pewter) - oart GF1 - who would probably look the part well
