's brand is known for their yellow packaging so perhaps this red package needs an introduction. It is a new range of figures, NOCH Hobby Figures

N scale Pedestrians, Hobby Figures
NOCH packs these six figures in a form-fitted cradle, held inside a hard plastic case.
Six figures are included:
Man in waistcoat
Woman in dress
These figures feature remarkably fine molding. They have no flash or seam lines or other molding flaws.
These figures have good posing and proportions. Look closely and you will see clothing detail, especially on the coat man and the two women. There is a trace of facial detail, and the hands and feet look good for the scale. From what I can tell, the clothing is suitable for western cultures circa 1940 and later.
PaintingNOCH Hobby Figures
are painted at the factory. The difference is that they are not painted to the same degree of detail of NOCH's
traditional figures. Those figures have more colors differentiating shirts/coats/scarves/hats/straps/belts, etc.. NOCH Hobby Figures
have different colors but just not as many clothing details are picked out. With an approximately €3-4 savings, NOCH Hobby Figures
should be welcomed by many modelers seeking good figure sets to populate their layout. Many modelers will probably enjoy customizing their set with a bit of brushwork if they so desire.
NOCH's diminutive set of six Pedestrians
are well detailed figures. They will enhance any N scale scene c. 1940s on. Recommended.
