First Look

Here is a new figure set released by MiniArt which provides five German tankers in early gear as they would appear during the invasion of France in 1940. These figures are tailored for the early Panzer III kits released by MiniArt recently. The kit is molded in light gray styrene and presented on five parts trees. One figure is posed standing through the commander's hatch, the second seated inside the turret, the third seated on the fender outside the turret side hatch, the fourth is seated on the front of the turret while the fifth is standing on the hull.

These figures can be used together or individually in a variety of dioramas or vignettes observing other activities, planning their next operations, or whatever the scene calls for. With the finely sculpted details and ease of assembly, these MiniArt figures are great starters for new figure builders as well as experienced modelers.

Thanks to MiniArt for the review sample.
