introduction

Besides producing nice posed, life-like figures representing female members of the German armed forces to create realistic World War II scenes, Aurora Model lately released a few animal sets.
One of the latest kits of the company, ML-035 is sculpted in 1:35 scale, cast in metal and represents a set of cats in different poses and sizes.
Packing

The set comes in 12x7 cm transparent zip-lock bag with a company label stapled on the top of the bag. Inside the bag; there are 2 small paper sheets ; one with the information about thekit in Japanese and English, the other with a painted photo which can be used as a painting guide. It is noted on the information sheet that the metal kits contain lead.
Cats are secured in another plastic bag.
Parts

The cats are sculpted by Kiyushi Tsuda aka SOLO and cast in 7 white metal parts. Each cat is sculpted as a single piece. The sculpt and cast are very good. There is not much need for a cleanwork. A quick metal brushing will be enough to make them ready for priming.
Conclusion

Another very useful kit from Aurora Model which can be used not only in World War II vignettes or dioramas but also in all scenes.
