yes HO figures are smaller but people are all different sizes. if you use a mix then it shouldnt be a problem.

Presier do sprues of people just standing and sitting. you can paint them yourself to look "brittish"

they may not be "evryones cup of tea" but the soloutions are there.

I actually prefer to just use HO figures even though my layout is OO/HO mix. i find that i can cram more into a smaller space withought it looking overcrowded. this helps give a slightly forced perception. and makes a station look slightly larger than it really is.

Also eastern european people are (how can i put this) more pleasing to the eye than the westeners. a friend and i have a joke that the only fat people in eastern europe are tourists!!

many of the earlier ones you mention are actually sligtly overscale which dosent help matters, especially if you want to mix them but if you still want them then i have found that there is no better way of getting them than crawling through the dust in those pick and mix boxes in model shops. -you never know what else you might find.

if the figure is isolated i bet you cant see the difference.

only if you had the 2 side by side could you tell the difference.

Uk buildings are exactly the same size as their continental counterparts!
Although the Dutch are the tallest there are at least 6 major nations with heights within 6cm of their average. all of which are major modelling contries and they dont include the USA.

The only times when the scale difference is really noticible is when you run brittish HO stock with Brittish OO stock. then it does look daft.
