Gentlemen-
A friend of mine is building a small diorama depicting a science museum. He is looking for contemporary, modernly clothed Eurpean civilians. They could be children, grown-ups or senior citizens in 54mm or 1/32nd scale. They can be plastic, resin or metal.
Any help for a particular brand and source would be great.
TIA
Guido

I think the best choice can be preiser figures.

This are the 1:32 scale civilians they sell assembled and painted and these are their kits, mostly military but some civilians

Miniart has a few civilians that might be used well into the 1950s/60s.

Masterbox has a few as as well that work up to 1960s in rural settings

You might be able to negotiate a deal with Plus Models
