FUNKY 1/35 THREE-WHEELER
Ukraine’s MiniArt is soon to release an all-new kit of the characterful Tempo E400 three-wheel light commercial vehicle.
Built by German firm Tempo in 1936-37, the E400 was a civil transport vehicle constructed in Hamburg. Ever resolved to provide modellers with interesting subjects, MiniArt is to produce this machine in 1/35 scale, and it can serve as a neat individual display piece, or the centrepiece of a period diorama. And it could even be mixed with military material for a German ‘at home’ scene.
The kit (Tempo E400 Hochlader Pritsche 3-Wheel Truck – 38025) comprises styrene, photo-etched brass (for items such as the front grille and bonnet locks) and decals, and the bonnet and doors can be posed open or closed. There are also parts with which to represent a load for the rear compartment.
Decals for four different liveries will be provided, but as yet, no price has been announced. For further details visit: www.miniart-models.com
