Man in coat with case
Woman in coat with bag
Woman in dress with travel bags
Senior stooping with travel bags
The figures are very well molded with no injection-molding flaws. For their "braille scale" they have good detail, such as clothing types. Each has basic facial detail.
The poses are authentic and natural, not stiff. However, they do not stand on their own and will require to be glued to remain upright.
PaintingNOCH Hobby Figures
are painted at the factory. The difference is that they are not painted to the same degree of detail of NOCH's
traditional figures. Those figures have more colors differentiating shirts/coats/scarves/hats/straps/belts, etc.. NOCH Hobby Figures
have different colors but just not as many clothing details are picked out. With an approximately €3-4 savings, NOCH Hobby Figures
should be welcomed by many modelers seeking good figure sets to populate their layout. Many modelers will probably enjoy customizing their set with a bit of brushwork if they so desire.
The bright red cartons amongst NOCH's
yellow labels announce these neat NOCH Hobby Figures
sets. These sets are the same as the traditional sets, just with less detail of painting. That does not detract from the figures and should allow modelers to increase their layout population by 25%, for the same price.
These figures have fine detail and look great. They will need glue to stand upright but with 1/160 feet, that is not a surprise, nor a problem.
of NOCH's Hobby Figures
range will be welcomed by N scalers. They are a fine set. Recommended.
