Preiser 2017 New Items

Julian Lilley

JULIAN LILLEY looks at what is due for release in 2017 from Preiser.

Preiser produce probably the finest, and certainly the widest range of model figures, in over nineteen different scales.

The majority of the range are hand painted, with a good range of unpainted figures as well. The Preiser 2017 New Items Leaflet is available free of charge.

OO/HO Scale

By far the biggest part of the Preiser range is HO Scale, which can of course be used by OO Scale modellers. Their sets with part numbers starting with '10' are plastic moulded figures hand painted with extra detail, whilst those whose part numbers start with the '14' not so finely detailed, but are better value for money, which are particularly good for crowd scene work.

I regularly see layouts where there are large area of just grass with the odd trees placed here and there. I particularly like the PR10697 On The Lawn set and PR10696 Outdoor Fun set, both of which could be used in most settings with grass.

Continuing on from their boating lake range launched (pardon the pun) in 2015, they have added some nicely detailed sets to compliment this range.

The two wood stack sets below I can see being popular for use either in goods yards or a farmyard. You could also put them on the edge of a woodland/forest to represent logging, particularly if you have a back scène with a lot of trees on the border.

How many layouts have a garage with petrol pumps, but no figures next to the cars? This has been remedied with the At the Filling station set!

A set that also that took my eye (the apple of your eye? - Ed) was the Apple Harvest set and the single figure 'Picking Apples' that accompanies it. Both would look good with our set of three apple trees!

With most layouts having a platform the three sets below would add additional realism and theatre. The two shopping sets could of course be used in High Street settings too.

O Scale

With the recent growth in the popularity of O Scale, particularly helped by the recent releases from Dapol, Preiser have increased their range of figures that would be ideal for platform population and fitting inside coaches.

G Scale

By its nature most G Scale layouts are in the garden, so the introduction of some beautifully detailed gardeners are natural additions.

For sheer brilliance in the modelling detail I must mention the Cartwright and Basket Weaver. At the Nuremburg Toy fair they looked even better in "real life".

N Scale

Just a few additions in N Scale this year, however they have added what I feel are the best modelled cows in the scale, and the black and white set should be particularly popular amongst British modellers.

With Christmas just nine months away the set below is worth making note of, although having seen them I am still getting over the shock that there is more than one Father Christmas!

A Reminder for British OO Modellers...

And for the British Modellers who insist on true 1/76th scale, Preiser have created a range of OO Scale figures just for the British market.

The range is diverse, including passengers, British Policemen, British Rail staff, and cows!
