Introduction
NOCH makes figure sets in HO, TT and N scales. This N scale set is Bathers, item 36841.

Bathers
Six figures are in this set, packed in a hard clear box designed to be stacked or hung on a rod.

The six people are:
    Woman on a raft
    Rotund guy
    Girl sitting
    Man lying on stomach
    Man standing around
    Woman standing around

Perhaps I am just presuming it but it seems like these three couple are also modeled by age - young, middle age, seniors. Each presumed body type is even color coordinated.

Detail
NOCH's sculptor created some fine detail for these diminutive swimmers. I can not count fingers and toes but the hands and feet look like hands and feet.

NOCH's painters also did a good job with them. Bikini straps are well rendered.

Conclusion
These tiny swimmers are good looking figures for N scale. I posed them with my NOCH Bathing Lake. (See the link, below.)

I think the sculpting and molding detail is good, as is the painting. I really have no complaints about these little bathers. They should enhance any N scale scene where people in bathing suites will be. Recommended.


SUMMARY
Highs: Good detail and skillfully pre-painted.
Lows: De minimis.
Verdict: BATHERS should enhance any scene where people in bathing suites will be. These tiny swimmers are good looking figures for N scale.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
