Don't have any children of my own so I pain't Mr Preiser's. Hope he don't mind. When I've finished these I have to take a little break from Suso-Frick Junction and paint something totally different. I also feel that 1:87 is really too small for me and children in 1:87 is even smaller. But it's not the last you see of Suso-Frick Junction! I found many painted figures that just need a little brushing up and a base of clear plastic (instead of white cardboard) to be ready to go into action.
