MiniArt has made the Typ170V before - in military and civilian versions, and now we see another creative version in "fast food" a delivery van. See what MiniArt are serving us up in this latest incarnation of a van packed with fruit & veg in our preview...

MiniArt's 35th scale Typ 170V Lieferwagen bears even more fruit...

Type 170V Lieferwagen
From: MiniArt
No #382044
1/35th scale
Box size: 345x240x60 mm
The Subject - the Type 170V Lieferwagen
The Mercedes Type 170V Lieferwagen (German for "Delivery Van") was one of the variants of the successful Type 170 that was produced before, during and after WWII in many various forms from roadsters, cabriolets'  Kubelwagens, utility vehicles, four-door passenger wagons, ambulances and other variants. It is a very popular vehicle amongst Mercedes enthusiasts and until recently not produced by many model makers in 1/35th scale.
MiniArt has made a few of these vehicles in 35th scale, this time, a very smart way of changing the look of their moulds with a delivery van version of the car, complete with cargo for the back and decals for the commercial uses of the kit.
Features of MiniArt's new kit:
This brand new kit looks to be on the release timescale for next month. This one is a follow on from the two previous Miniart Typ 170V Lieferwagens.
3D renders:
We have some CAD pictures of the kit with detail points notated there - It is a really good way of pointing out on the kit what the company wants to highlight...
