Prisoners, Parras and Pillaged Plasterwork – MiniArt’s newest releases

It is that time of year when model makers start to release what they have promised in their catalogues and at big modelling shows. MiniArt has a wide range of kits available this year to release – they have started off well and now add these two to their cannon…

BOX: 345x240x60 mm
Kit contains 84 parts.
Made up of MiniArt’s successful mix of vac-form plastic and injection moulded parts, this factory looks a lot like it could be at home as ruins in Stalingrad, Germany or Poland – any heavy industrial battle scene really.

There are several uprights to hold up the ducting which interestingly almost floats above any diorama vehicles, people and rubble you place on the ground.

BOX: 260x162x35 mm
Kit contains 43 parts.
One sprue in medium grey will house these two American Parras of the 101st division which fought behind the hedgerows in the D-Day invasion in Normandy 1944

The two Americans, seen here in full jump gear are standing guard over three meek looking German prisoners they look to have captured. This kit is a mirror of the Arnhem set where the German Airforce gunners capture the British Parras.

You can now find MiniArt on Facebook or on their website, both of which are constantly updated with new kits
