BRITISH TANK CREW MINIART 1/35

BRITISH TANK CREW MINIART 1/35 BOX PACKAGE I bought this Miniart British tank crew kit about 10 years ago. The uniform of British tanks changes in North Africa and West Europe depending on where they were used. I didn’t have much opportunity to combine them for a few making British tanks. When I made a Tasca Sherman Firefly a long time ago, it had a figure, and I remember I didn’t put this kit together. This time, the Sherman V was assembled and a figure was attached, but this is a good opportunity to make this Miniart kit.

BRITISH TANK CREW MINIART 1/35 MAKING There was a simple explanation sheet. I thought it was strange because there were no parts for one crew, I used one when I made Mark 6B tank.

BRITISH TANK CREW MINIART 1/35 MAKING I haven’t seen a Miniart figure in a while, and I think the quality of the plastic is not very good. I feel it especially when I glue the parts. It has a rough texture. This figure kit was released a long time ago, so it may be improved now.

BRITISH TANK CREW MINIART 1/35 MAKINGI’m not sure if it’s all right, the mold of the face looks dull. When I finished assembling, there were some gaps and holes caused by sink marks. But I think they can be fixed easily with putty.

BRITISH TANK CREW MINIART 1/35 PAINTINGThis British tank soldier is checking the direction with a map board. This kit did not include anything like a scale map sheet. A long time ago, Tristar’s figure kit had handy maps on the side of the box, but I threw away the extra maps. I found a decal in Dragon Rommel kit this time, so let’s copy it and use it. If you search on the internet, you can find a lot of such maps, so it might be good.

The British tank crew wore berets instead of helmets from the beginning to the middle of the war. There may be a figure that doesn’t really match the period of Sherman V that was made a while ago.

This is one of the five figures in this kit. I use a Hornet resin head, and this one is better. It is easier to finish if the mold of the face is of high quality.
