WHILE MINIART is known for its high-quality figure sets, the firm has taken a step forward with its latest packages, as its 1/35 German Tank Crew will include resin heads to accompany the styrene bodies.
The set (35354) represents a four-figure crew with winter uniforms appropriate for a Kharkov, Soviet Union setting during 1943; it comprises seven styrene runners plus four refined head parts on a shared casting block. Compared with moulded representations, cast faces tend to feature sharper, more convincing detail.
Poses depict two standing figures, one walking and one sitting (presumably the vehicle driver), with a range of equipment and armaments supplied on three of the frames (including a pair of duplicates) – although these appear to have originated with infantry sets.
MiniArt has stated the package is a future release, but has not set a fixed release date – for further details, visit: www.miniart-models.com
