Market Cart with Vegetables (35623)

1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models

Although the roadside stall is something of a blast from the past, only really seen as Starsky and Hutch plough through it in a car chase, these small businesses used to be commonplace in most towns and villages.  This set includes a hand-portable cart that is finely balanced so that a single person can walk with it in front or behind them.  Inside the shrink-wrapped box are four sprues, one containing the cart, two fruit boxes, and another is filled with plastic fruit and veg.

The instructions on the rear of the box cover the construction of the cart, the two upstands that allow the boxes to be displayed, and the eight shallow veg boxes themselves.  They also helpfully tell you what is what, and show the two-part pumpkins being glued together.  In the bottom right an example drawing of the completed cart with produce is given, showing which veg go where in case you really can’t decide yourself. You even get told which colours to use on which fruit and veg, just in case you’re not familiar with the colour of any of them.  Here’s a list of all the produce you’ll find on the sprue:

 

  • Potato
  • Eggplant
  • Bell Pepper
  • Cucumber
  • Onion
  • Carrot
  • Tomato
  • Beet(root)
  • Pumpkin (two types)

Some of the carrots look suspiciously like parsnips, but all you have the power to paint them a yellowish shade if you agree with me.  As usual with MiniArt sets their sculpting is exceptional with crisp wood detail and sensible parts breakdown, plus loads of vegetables of differing shapes from their brethren to add realistic randomness.

 

Highly recommended.
