We've got a small selection of items specifically geared to 1:6 ("Action") scale model horses that go with action figures. These items will fit Thunderbolt and Sindy models, as well as other brands that are closer to true 1:6 size.

Shoes and bits are cast pewter, and assembled bits will arrive to fit a Thunderbolt mouth (as shown).

If your horse has a closed mouth, a wider head, or for some other reason cannot accept a bit assembled to fit a Thunderbolt's mouth, you should purchase the unassembled version..

TR657 Thunderbolt Size trees are sized well for length, but are wider than they should be for the Thunderbolt model. You may wish to do some hand-work on these trees if you prefer a better fit.
(We are working on a modified version).

The pewter bits are pretty decent as they come, but with just a little bit of extra work you can make them look really nice! It's not hard, we'll show you
