First Look

Diorama w/Brick Wall

This MiniArt kit is another in their ever growing "Diorama Series". This release is very simple with only five vacuformed parts comprising the base and the broken wall. This kit is also supposed to have a lamp post included but my example didn't have the lamp sprue in the box. For the diorama I have in mind, I wouldn't have used the lamp post anyway, so this is not an issue.

The base measures 8" X 10" and is large enough for any mid-size vehicle.

Constructions is pretty straight forward, but should you have any questions, please take a look at the MiniArt website as it has numerous tips and even some videos on how to construct their vacuum formed kits.

This is a great series of quick and effective bases!

My sincere thanks to MRC for this review sample!
