Five HO Scale Horses Painted

I purchased these castings long ago so the manufacturer of these horses is a mystery to me. They are in 1/87-HO scale and cast in white metal. I was looking through an online catalog of Selley Finishing Touches’ detail parts the other day and noticed that they have a set of six horses available for sale. Three are grazing and three are standing. I have three grazing and two standing. Were my horse figures purchased from Selley? I did misplace one of the horses long ago? I suppose I will never really know where these figures originated, but they are now ready for that rural pasture scene.


  1. I like the way you set them in that scene. Very pastoral and natural looking.

      Thank you for your very kind remark!


  2. Agree with Anne !
    nice horses! the Selley collection is amazing !!
    It seems that's an old manufacturer (around 1960) fron the US (Pennsylvania)specialized in Rail-ways models and figures.

    I found a seller on e-bay, but I'm sure that it's possible to find some others!

    Thank you for your comment. I have just gotten into the world of minis, but my passion is really for model railroading.
