Woman with horse drawn cart
This new 1:48 scale reference by Toro Model consists of a woman figure, a horse and a cart for a total of 17 resin parts and one metal wire. The content is located within a small but sturdy cardboard box adorned with a color photo of a completed and painted kit. Each subject is placed within a seperate plastic bag.

The quality of the castings is excellent and I found no air bubbles in places one would have to worry about. The pieces are well sculpted with a good level of detail overall, especially for such a small scale. The woman figure is broke down in three separate parts (body and arms), the horse in two (with additional detail parts) and the cart in eight. After having removed the casting plugs, assembling shouldn't be too complicated even if some filler will have to be used for the horse. A metal wire is provided to represent the reins which attach the animal to the cart. The latter features some nice wood textures.

No instructions are provided but constructions shouldn't be too complicated and the photo on the box cover can be used as an assembly and painting guide.

Conclusion
This is again a nice figure set from Toro Model and it's versatility will allow it to be used in a lot of diorama settings, even some featuring aircraft models.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AeroScale.
