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.
