New from Zoukei-Mura – Pre-Painted BasesDN Models
Zoukei-Mura is not just another company for scale models, they are one of the best out there. The abstract view and approach that they have in regards to scale model engineering and execution is unmatched even by the most advanced and innovative competitors on that market. We all know about their amazing line of airplanes, which are sophisticated and challenging. We also know that they are oriented towards the most serious modelers on the market.
This September, Zoukei-Mura’s montly advertisement is particularly interesting. They presented us with new items, shifted slightly from the line we are used to see from the Japanese company. It is very interesting actually, because they now offer Pre-Painted bases made from resin. The bases are completed by /obviously!/ professional modelers, and in the end they give us wonderful result for price lower, than what we can get if we build them ourselves. Minus the time too, of course.
Zoukei-Mura announced a total of 12 bases, in both scales: 1/32 and 1/48. They are made from Resin and are manufactured and completed in Japan, which pretty much guarantees the best possible quality. The sizes varies according to the scale. For 1/32 is 6mm thickness and diameter of 295mm, and for 48th scale is 5mm thickness and diameter of 245mm. They represent different airfields, panzer fields, temporary runways and aircraft wooden carrier decks. Obviously – more than enough for Zoukei-Mura kits and more. Especially if you are a fan of 32nd scale airplanes like myself.
The other thing featured in Septembers monthly advertisement is a decent range of different resin figure sets. We all know that for a diorama, this is extremely important and makes your kit more vivid and with stunning appearance. Zoukei Mura provided Horten ground crew, Ta-152 Ground crew, Ta-152 Ace pilots and flight assistant sets, as well as a pilot’s figure, all of them in 48th scale. They fit the 48th line of Zoukei kits, and alongside with the diorama pads are extremely useful and time saving add-ons to your kits. Of course, as with the pads, these crew sets can be used with different kits from different companies, but there are no real competitors for Zoukei-Mura’s quality and there is no doubt about it.
You can find additional information on the leaflet, or through contacting your local SWS supplier shop. I believe that pictures by themselves are convincing enough and you will be very pleased if you decide to elevate your hobby to the Zoukei level of business!
