Introduction
Passengers Without Legs is a N scale set of people by NOCH made to easily fit into vehicles and under items like tables. Thus they are made without a full set of legs. This is set 36241. Scenery specialist NOCH makes many figure sets in several scales.

Passengers
Passengers Without Legs is a set of six figures. Each figure is painted. There are three men and three women of various ages, postures, and formality of dress.

Molding is remarkably fine and the figures have good detail. I found no molding flaws. The figures have poses that look realistic.

The set is packed in a form-fitted cradle for each model. That cradle is held inside a top/bottom clear plastic box.

detail
These figures show good detail for the scale ( 1/160 ). The skill of the painter accentuates the molded detail, especially along the straps of the ladies' dresses.

Conclusion
NOCH's tiny riders feature good detail and natural poses. The factory painting is very good.

I believe that N scalers will enjoy this set for populating their layout. Recommended.

Please remember to mention to NOCH and retailers that you saw these ferns here - on RailRoad Modeling.

SUMMARY
Highs: Good detail and painting.
Lows: Nothing meaningful.
Verdict: An effective way of adding sitting people without having to cut up figures to allow their legs to fit under objects.

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...
