I was surprised when I found a "Ataturk" metal figure in 54 mm. scale. My surprise was bigger when I realized that the producer was a turkish company, settled in Ankara, the capital of Turkey.
Since 2006, the owner Abdullah Turhal is producing figures in 2 scales from various periods of turkish history.
He began with 54 mm.-1/32 scale, producing at first, an ottoman deli (crazy/mad) cavalry, the Sultan Tamerlane, a turkish commando and Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic.
His second series began with 25 mm. ottoman sultans. Till now 3 of them are released:
Sultan "Thunderbold" Beyazit, (Sultan Yıldırım Bayezid)
Sultan "Conqueror" Mehmed, (Fatih Sultan Mehmed)
Sultan Suleiman the "Magnificent" (Kanuni Sultan Süleyman)
On their website, it's written, that it is "the first and only turkish figure producer at world standards from turkish history". As far as Iknow, this is correct!
The company produced also a woman reclining on a divan, directly taken from an ottoman painting from 17. century.
Ans a fearsome demon taken from another painting. Both of them are made of resin.
Mr. Turhal is cooperating with famous sculptors like Uhrin Zsolt and painters Matt Verzani.
I am really proud of presenting this turkish company.
