1/12 Cobaanii Barbeque Table and Chair Review

Welcome back to AnimeMangaPedia figure review, this time I will not review a figure character but miniature scale model that can be accessories for your figure.

It is 1/12 Barbecue Table & Chair by cobaanii, a miniature 1/12 scale model that suitable for figure 1/12 like SHFiguarts and other figure line like revoltech and figma with height approximately 12-15 cm.
A set of this miniature model that should assembled first contain 1 barbeque table, 2 bench and a base grass.

Made from plywood make 1/12 Barbecue Table & Chair look a real wood table and chair, but you should be careful when you want to remove the parts, because if you not careful, you can break the parts, for safety use cutter to help cut the parts.

To assemble the parts is not really difficult, but some parts may need some kind of glue  to make it really firmly attached.

Overall, 1/12 Barbecue Table & Chair by Cobaanii is a good miniature model for your figures to make it become a diorama.
