The MiniArt Ardennes Building kit is another in the rapidly growing line of the Buildings and Accessories Series. The kit consists of 123 injection molded styrene parts and 17 vacuum formed styrene parts.
The injection molded parts are mainly the detail parts and they are molded well and feature nice detail. There is a little bit of flash on some parts, but cleanup should be fast and easy. The vacuum formed parts all have very nice details, but also have numerous bumps that will need to be shaved off. Again, it is easy and fast work. Once assembled and painted, this building will be great. This kit features full interior details.
If you have not assembled any of the Mini Art vacuum formed buildings yet, I encourage you to watch the construction videos on the Mini Art website. They will provide numerous tips and pointers that will make your build more enjoyable.
My sincere thanks to MRC for this review sample!
