|Date of Review||December 2013||Manufacturer||MiniArt|
|Subject||German Tank Crew||Scale||1/35|
|Kit Number||35167||Primary Media||Styrene|
|Pros||Great Panzer IV crew figure set||Cons||Nothing noted|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$14.99|
This MiniArt kit consists of 43 styrene parts molded in light gray. All of the parts are molded very well and feature crisp detail. There is no flash and seam lines are minimal.
There are parts for six full figures, five crew members of a Panzer IV type (two standing out of the turret hatches, two seated through the side turret hatches, and a driver, plus a field commander figure with map case in a pose that would be giving orders to the tank commander.
Paint colors are called out on the back of the box and are provided for Vallejo, Testor, Tamiya, Humbrol, Revell, Mr. Color and Life Color.
This would be a great set to provide a great vignette or diorama setting atop your favorite Panzer IV with the field commander's Kubelwagen parked along side.
My sincere thanks to MRC for this review sample!
