Here is a new figure set released by MiniArt which provides five French male figures wearing clothing circa World War 2. All five figures are standing with one walking. The kit is molded in light gray styrene and presented on two parts trees.

French Civilians '30s-'40s Kit

Included in this kit are:

  • Standing priest
  • Standing old man cheering
  • Standing French policeman
  • Walking grocer
  • Standing business man in suit

These figures can be used together or individually in a variety of dioramas or vignettes including the new tram from MiniArt. 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 MRC for the review sample.
