LUCKY TOYS TL0009. GARIBALDI "RED SHIRTS". 1/72 SCALE.
LUCKY TOYS - GARIBALDI "RED SHIRTS". 1:72 SCALE
You get 31 unpainted plastic pieces including 2 horses plus 13 individual rifles.
Three personality figures come with the set and these are Giuseppe Garibaldi, King Victor Emanuel II and Nina Bixio (one of Garibaldi's generals).
NOTE: Some boxes state they contain 37 not 31 figures. I have checked with Lucky Toy and this is a printing error. 31 is the correct number. Also the boxes are a little small for all the sprues packed into them so please only purchase if you accept mishaped boxes or ones with rips in them.
Drum & Flag Tip: Always wash plastic figures in warm soapy water, rinse well and allow to dry as preparation before painting. This removes the moulding agent that sometimes makes the paint not want to stick. Stirring and/or shaking your paint thoroughly also ensures you get a good quality application and finish. Varnish to protect your paint work.
This item is brand new & boxed. Not suitable for young children. Plastic colour may vary from that shown.
Need some help understanding toy soldier scales?
The difference between 1:72 scale and 1:32 scale figures is simply their size.
1:72 scale standing infantry figures are typically about 20-25mm tall whilst 1:32 scale foot figures usually come in at about 54-60mm or more high. (For those working in Imperial units 25mm is roughly 1 inch). The manufacturers interpret scales differently so these guidelines are general approximations only. For more info on 1:72 scale figures, including reviews and pose pictures, visit the excellent plasticsoldierreview website.
