I always try to make my son-in-law something odd for Christmas, cause I'm that kind of person.  I've been playing around with HO scale train people and saw something on Pinterest a while back that caught my eye that uses them.  I was inspired to make a version for him.  His desk is covered with little odd things made by me, this should fit right in!

This was just too funny. I hope you don't mind, but I just had to share your picture of it with my friend in Indianapolis. He makes glass topped trains {train is under the glass inside the table, working parts in a drawer}. I know he will get a kick out of this one!  Grin
I am pretty sure from your description, that your son will love it, too! Very interesting. I just hope Carl doesn't get carried away with the idea, and send me one.  Roll Eyes

Oh my, what a tragedy! I hope they can determine the cause of death (beyond the obvious!) So that more tiny people don't have to die.

This is truly inspired, and you, madam, are twisted. I love it!

Thanks! 

AIMR, the figures come with crime scene tags.  They needed to be used!

Ludi, they actually come in these poses as a set.  I have a few more and need to wreak havoc on something else....

Do you have a preferred online source for your HO figures? I've had some ideas floating around my head for these guys, but my only local source has a pretty limited selection.

Thanks for the kind comments, everyone!

  I spent hours online looking at these little guys.  Since they're meant for trains, a LOT of the sets are either seated or with luggage.  Of course, the majority of the ones I wanted are discontinued so I ended up using ebay (buy it now).  Shipping is cheap, they weigh almost nothing.  Smiley

I think the  most disturbing thing for me (apart from the question of the bait) is that some manufacturer of HO figures thought "What people really want for their railway layouts is a crime scene!"

This is awfully brilliant and of course brilliantly awful.
