Aoshima 1:35th Scale Plastic Samurai
Here's a small group of 1:35th scale plastic models that I worked on many years ago - before I got into gaming and was more into modelling. The box art showed one mounted samurai so I thought it would be a large single-figure kit. As everything was printed in Japanese, I was surprised to find a bunch small multi-part figures. I went ahead and put them together and went a little wild with a hot knife and putty modifying their poses and also adding details like mail and plates on their sleeve armor. I had forgotten about them and discovered them recently while rifling through boxes of junk. I glued back some broken off pieces and mounted them on bases from Warmachine (30mm for the foot and 50mm for the mounted figure).
