First Look

This beautifully detailed 1/16th scale figure kit from MiniArt consists of 57 well molded parts in grey styrene. A nice styrene display stand is also provided. All of the parts are molded well and flash is minimal.

The instructions are provided as a full color artist rendering. Most of the parts should be easy to assemble. Fit of the main components is really nice.

Paint colors are called out on the same artwork as the part numbers. The paint chart features Vallejo, Testors, Tamiya, Revell, Mr. Color and Life Color.

This kit, as well as all the other MiniArt Napoleonic kits, gives figure painters a chance to paint some large scale figures for a very reasonable price.

Thanks to MRC for the review sample.
