ZVEZDA 8011 - WAR ELEPHANTS III-I CENTURY BC. 1:72 SCALE
You get 2 different elephants and 7 plastic figures in assorted poses. This is a fantastically sculpted unpainted plastic set.
The box labels the elephants as being North African and Indian. Plastic Soldier Review suggests that these are best suited for the Successor Wars of Alexander's Generals rather than for armies of Carthage or India.
Drum & Flag Tip #1: 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 throughly also ensures you get a good quality application and finish. Varnish to protect your paint work.
Box artwork may vary from that shown.
This item is brand new & boxed. Not suitable for young children.
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.
