Blimey, this ‘box is a BEAUT! The new 1:6 scale Royal Mail postbox from SOAR ART Workshop is constructed of all-metal and will be available at most 1:6 retailers sometime during the first quarter of 2018. (Photo size comparison by Mark Otnes) Click to enlarge.

This cool news just came in on over the wire…

According to respected wholesale product distributor, Alpha-C Group (located in Hong Kong), the modeling masters over at SOAR ART Workshop will soon be releasing an all-metal, 1:6 scale Royal Mail postbox, sometime during the first quarter of 2018. For fans of Action Man, GIjOE, and all things 1:6 scale, this is exciting news. Such a box would make a STUNNING addition to any (post WW2) neighborhood or downtown (i.e. urban) diorama. (Now you’ll need an Action Man Mailman!)

Three closeups for the price of ONE— Superb craftsmanship in the new SOAR ART postbox is apparent from all angles. And take a look at that middle pic. YES! It even opens up so you can remove all of Action Man’s mail. That is out-STANDING! (Photo: SOAR ART) Click to enlarge.

What time is pickup and drop-off?— Don’t worry, this pic (taken from about an inch away) shows that you can even read the tiny type in that RM plaque. WOW! (Photo: SOAR ART)

Bottom Line: Spec-wise, this RM postbox stands at a perfect 27cm tall (approximately 10.6″), is 10.5cm wide (4.1″) and weighs in at about 1kg (or 2.2 lbs). All told, this big boy looks to be a near perfect replica of the real thing. According to Alpha-C, you should probably expect a retail price somewhere around $62 plus s/h. Our advice? Start watching the usual 1:6 scale import/retail websites (Cots, Big Bad, etc.) for further information on price and availability. Happy Hunting!

    Ummm, while the design might be the same, by the text on that mailbox, that’s a Hong Kong mailbox, not a United Kingdom mailbox.

    Not surprising that this would be a British Post box with Chinese text – Hong Kong was a British Crown Colony for a long time.
