Meng Model, 1/35 scale
Meng Model has released its debut 1/35 scale figure set entitled Middle Easterners.
This straightforward set comprises 26 grey plastic parts making up four figures - a man, woman, a girl and a boy.
Moulding quality is very good indeed, as is the standard of sculpting. The man wears a knitted cap, scarf, jacket and boots, with the boy in jacket and sandles. The woman is wearing a niqab veil, with the girl in a simple hijab and carrying a sack above her head.
Locating points for the legs and feet are very well defined and should result in a strong bond. Painting suggestions are offered on the back of the box, but the possibilities are very broad.
Meng's 1/35 scale Middle Easterners offer some interesting possibilities for posing with a civilian vehicle for a vignette or in a broader diorama setting.
Thanks to Meng Model for the sample
