First Look

MiniArt has released a nice vignette or diorama essential - a set of ammo crates with Soviet World War 2 tank ammunition. This set contains six sprues molded in light gray styrene. Each tree contains the parts for one complete four-round wooden storage box, two rounds of armor-piercing ammunition, two rounds of high explosive ammunition, and one spent shell.

Soviet 85mm Shells w/Ammo Boxes

This set provides you then with six complete storage boxes, 12 rounds each of HE and AP, and six spent shells. If you're displaying a T-34/85, SU-85, or other 85mm combat vehicle, this set is just what you need to add a dynamic element to your model.

My sincere thanks to for this review sample!
