American Archetype is working on a number of nifty N scale items, including a fancy subway kiosk and pigeons.

Where there is smoke, there is fire.
Where there are pigeons, there is.......
So that is the next modeling step in the pathway. :)

Whoa. Cool.

I also just realized something. Would RP be the way to get all the figures we really need?

Figures - probably.  Painted figures . . . . not so much.

My glue globs used to attach them might be bigger than the pigeons--or as we call them here, "flying rats."  That said, I still think they would be cool for an edge of the aisle scene.
Best regards,

Actually, he has some cool stuff coming out.

Only if you're willing to paint them all.

............
As I said before, pigeon droppings cannot be far behind the addition of pigeons.
Then someone can criticism that the droppings are not the correct size & color and a multi-page
topic will rage on about how the color of pigeon droppings varies by location, time of year and which
road name is being modelled.

I'm told these were designed specifically for Chris Brimley and his Hudson Terminal project.  I would be only mildly surprised if he includes pigeon-droppings as part of the weathering of the buildings where the flock is congregating, since he's done detail more crazy than that in the past.
