Meng Plastic Barrier Set (New!)

Traffic barriers, which are usually used to keep vehicles within their roadway or protect temporary work areas, have become a simple, cheap and fast deployable solution for the defense against terrorist attacks such as suicide attacks and car bombs. Both concrete barriers and plastic water-filled barriers have been the symbols of heavily defended urban zones in modern local wars and anti-terrorism wars.

This 1/35 scale Concrete & Plastic Barrier Set SPS-012 consists of 21 parts:

  • 4 concrete barriers (with outworn surfaces)
  • 1 mold (for modelers to make concrete barriers with gypsum)
  • 2 plastic water-filled barriers
  • 3 cone barriers and 2 cone bases (for replicating cones stacked up).

This is the latest release from Meng Models from their Supplies Series. The recently released 1/35 Concrete and Plastic Barriers is a must for modern armor diorama builders. This is a single sprue kit with instructions printed on the back of the box. The molding is very clean free of flash with almost no visible molding lines.

What a nice touch, Meng added a 2 halves mold so the model builder can create as many concrete barriers as he/she needs. While the provided concrete barrier have molded on worn details, the mold features a clean surface. That means that it is up to the model builders to create their own worn out details making every concrete barrier unique.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

This kit comes with a MSRP of $12.99 (USD). That’s way more affordable than a similar subject in resin media.

Highly Recommended!
