Soviet Tank Crew (35254)

1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models

MiniArt, those doyens of figures have new sets almost every week, and this one contains four crew of the Soviet persuasion, which are of WWII era, wearing leather jackets and posing in the hatchway of their tanks.  They arrive in a figure-sized box with a painting of the gentlemen in question on the front, and a construction diagram and painting guide on the rear.  Inside are four sprues, three of which were attached together with a runner that I cut off in order to ease photography.  There are four figures, one per sprue, broken down into torso, separate legs, arms head, helmet and face, plus additional overlap parts such as jackets, goggles and helmet side flaps.

All the figures have complete bodies, with their legs depicted entirely, which offers flexibility in positioning, and three are clearly leaning with their hands on the edges of hatches, while the fourth is stood with hand on hip pretending to be a little teapot.  Their dress varies, with all four wearing boots, two with overall trousers (one tucked in, the other out), the tea pot chap wearing riding-style trousers with voluminous thigh panels, and the remaining figure having leather pants.  If you check out MiniArt's website here, you can also see the photos that were used as reference for the sculpts, which as usual are first class.
