British Tank Crew. Special Edition
From Miniart Models
Kit No #35332
1/35th scale
Five figures & a weapons sprue inside the box.
Miniart are always expanding their model kit range - and we think to a most positive way when thinking of just how many kits they release each month. Today we look at the latest set - a British tank crew - a "special edition" kit with not only the five crewmembers, but extra weapons & gear to add to the mix.

Some examples of British tankers in medium or long sleeve gear during WWII:

A British Sherman tank crew of the 4th Armoured Brigade at Weert, the Netherlands, September 1944
A British Matilda tank in North Africa 1942 with soldiers wearing similar garb to the soldiers in this kit...
British tankers ride in the top of a Comet of the 11th Armoured Division, Germany, April 1945. 
Previous kits from MiniArt in the same genre:
We have already had two other kits from Miniart depicting British WWII tankers, the British Tank Crew. Winter Uniform #35121 & British Tank Crew #35078 - both of these kits were big sellers for MiniArt so we suppose a third crew to mix and match sounds like a great idea!
This new kit from MiniArt - British Tank Crew. Special Edition Kit No #35332:
The box of this kit contains models of five figures with weapons and equipment. Each of the tankers is wearing their standard uniform, a few with leather jerkins, or course all have the black beret of the tanker corps but the narrow helmet is included.
A second sprue including rifles, pistols and holsters, a map case, binoculars and spare helmets are included to give this the special edition title...
