     MiniArt just release a new set in the already long sets of figures sets.

     In the small box there is one sprue that with can sub-divide in 5 sprues, all inside a single plastic bag.

In each sprue, there`s complete figure with 7 pieces each.

Just be checking the sprues, a modeler can see how quite simply it would be construction of these figures. There`s a little bit of flash but nothing hard.

Also surface detail is the first thing that pops out on the figure set.

 

The surface details on the clothes for an injection molded figure are quite amazing and do have a very good body language.

 

The wear looks quite adjusted to France 1940. A wrap tunis, pants and the black Panzer beret helmet are well represented in 3 figures.

The others two figures do have also a good representation with a cotton shirt and black uniform trousers and long boot.

In the back of the box, there`s the color guidelines for all 5 figures. There are colour references for Vallejo, Testors, Tamiya, Humbrol, Revell, Mr. Colour and Life Colour.

No instructions ...but really do you need it? Absolutely not.

 

All the figures postures are quite well achieved, very natural and realistic.

 

As you can see on the pictures, there`s some cleaning that it`s need because of the seam mould line.

 

If that means no problem on the clothes and weapons, you cannot say the same thing concerning to the head and facial expression.

 

The seam line on the face or hair is particularly difficult to remove without damage any details.

Notwithstanding the head are well molded, balanced in size and the faces are quite nice in expression and look… the cleaning simply can ruin it.

But you`ve got a good solution: resin heads.

 

Conclusion:

 

MiniArt did it again! The figure set is quite comprehensive giving the modelers a full tank crew for Pz III or IV or splitting them to several others AFV vehicles. An almost perfect for the price (at least in my usual store) of a resin figure.

Very well done Miniart, again! :)

 

Very highly recommended
