A farm or stables on your layout in need of an 'action' scene? This new diorama pack from model shop Osborns might be of interest...
Osborns Models of Bideford, Devon, has added a new cast figure and horse model to its range. Made in-house and available exclusively from the model shop, the item depicts a Shire horse with farrier (OSBF107) tending to one of its hooves, the snapshot action scene is ideally suited to a farm yard or stables scene.
Still around today for the leisure industry – though far fewer in number – the scene is dateless, and could be used on layouts or dioramas from the pre-grouping era to the present day. The model arrives painted from the model shop, though could easily be repainted a different colour by the modeller, if desired.
With hammer in hand, the farrier is depicted wearing an apron and hammering a new shoe in place, though the horse looks a little 'skittish' as if it might kick at any moment.
For current pricing and stock of the new figures, visit the Osborns Models website, or see its range of figures in store.
