I found a source for 3d printed sailors for my Bluenose II and have had some many compliments on how they set off the model. I can no longer find a source for sailors and wanted to do the same for my Constitution build I'm working on. It is 1:78 scale. Any help out there?

Dusek has 1/72 British (?) sailors. Don’t know anything about the quality. The pics on their website are too small to tell what they look like. You’re not going to find figures in exactly 1/78 scale. You’re going to have to choose either 1/72 or 1/64. Amati has 1/64 sailors. Keep in mind 18th century people were generally shorter than they are today.
There are a lot of 1/72 soldiers on the market if you care to modify them.

Thanks for the info. I've spent hours scouring the internet but don't remember running across Dusek. Will check out soonest.

You can look also in the area of model railway - the HO rails have the scale 1:87, so some could be used.
I am sure they have also some sailors. Maybe also a possibility
Here f.e. the german "Preiser"
