A toob full of horses of about the right size, plus a couple of riders. There are eight different horses, each with a description of the breed or colour on the belly on the horse. As you can see, they are just a bit bigger than a Perry plastic horse.
Now the reason why I needed a draught horse was because I just received a Miniart 1/35 farm cart. For a long time I have felt inadequate because I lacked a wagon or cart model. I know there are many on the market but they are either too expensive for me, or else too... MDF, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I took the chance on the Miniart kit and was quite happy with the detail. However, as befits a 1/35 scale model, its wheels, at 40mm, were too big for my purpose.
|The wheels are taller than a man!|
I really like how heavy draught horses look. They may not be as graceful as an Arab or Andalusian, but the Clydesdales and Percherons have a power and majesty of their own. Now I just have to figure out a way to create a harness for this beauty...
