German Tank Crew at Work (35285)

1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models




Tanks despite looking cool demand a lot of hard work from their crews to work well. This is as true now as it was during WWII. This new set from Miniart shows a crew performing maintenance on their tank (well apart from the Officer taking a drink, so thats not changed either!).  It arrives in a standard end-opening box, with three sprues of grey styrene inside plus a small sheet of PE as well as an instruction sheet and sprue guide.  The painting and main construction diagrams are printed on the rear of the box, with colours called out in a large number of brands of paint for your ease.




From the box you can build five figures, each having separate arms, legs head and torso, plus two caps. Three soldiers are cleaning the barrel, while a is holding some sort of tool. What appears to be an offer its taking a drink.  There is a small sprue with two buckets on it, and an accessory sprue which provides various tools and tool boxes, the PE fret provides the doors for the open tool box and additional tools.




The painting guide covers Vallejo, Mr. Color, LifeColor, Tamiya, Testors, AK Real Color, Humbrol, Revell, and Mission Models, with the names of the colours given in English and Ukrainian.  Additional painted renditions of the accessories are also included for your use.





MiniArt's figures are excellent, and these figures can be used to give your Panzer a little human scale.


Highly recommended.
