A musume (pronounced "mousmé") refers to a girl or young woman of Japanese origin.
This term is derived from the Japanese word "musume" meaning "daughter", in the sense of parentage.
Like Gunpla , all mousmé models are characterized by two essential properties that differentiate them from more traditional models:
- Parts can be nested without gluing
- molded in color.
These are so-called "snap-fit" models, where the parts are assembled by clipping them together.
