A soldier scale models is a miniature figurine that represents a soldier. The term applies to depictions of uniformed military personnel from all eras, and includes knights, cowboys, American Indians, pirates, samurai, and other subjects that involve combat-related themes. Toy soldiers vary from simple playthings to highly realistic and detailed models. The latter are of more recent development and are sometimes called model figures to distinguish them from traditional toy soldiers. Larger scale toys such as dolls and action figures may come in military uniforms, but they are not generally considered toy soldiers.
Scale models are made from all types of material, but the most common mass-produced varieties are resin and plastic. Standard sizes of 1/35 scale models are about 40-60mm. 1/24 scale – about 60-80mm.
Cars and tanks are also produced in similar sizes. Assembling scale models from parts is a hobby for a large number of people.
