In this, the second of the reports on the 'renaissance' of Takahashi Modelling, attention turns to their plans for 1/35th scale figures....
There are many notable figure sculptures out there and of course many superb figures. In recent years, one of the most impressive range of figures have come from the Japanese company, Takahashi Modelling, not particularly for their subject matter, more for the quality of the sculpting. Now they're back. With a vengeance!!
While possible not the most interesting of releases to the general population, the June 2005 releases from Spanish manufacturer El Viejo Dragón Miniatures will serve to fill a gap in the 1/72 scale figure market and get modellers of this genre somewhat excited. These are the first of what promises to be an interesting new range for the Spaniards.
