Introduction
MATHO MODELS continues to create useful and interesting 1/35 models for dioramas. This is their resin set of PLASTIC ROAD BOLLARDS, item 35048.

Road bollards are used to divert traffic. Bollards are also emplaced for securing ropes to. Matho Models makes bollards of wood and concrete prototypes, too.

Plastic Road Bollards
Matho Models packs five of these 1/35 resin accessories in a baggie which is stapled to a card.

Each of the five buff colored resin bollards are sharply cast. There is a small amount of excess resin flash on a few of them. Each is attached to pour blocks. It was not difficult to remove the block with a heavy sharp knife. Most of the flash simply rubbed off with my fingers.

Conclusion
Matho Models has sharply cast another very useful modern scenery item that can be found in widespread use. Some have a slight amount of easily removed flash.

Modelers of a 1/35 modern era should be eager to block a 1/35 road with this set of Plastic Road Bollards. Recommended.

Please remember to tell Matho Models and retailers that you saw these bollards here - on Armorama.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
