War & Peace in 35th scale from Mantis Miniatures in September...

MB Wolf Canvas Roof
MAC26 
1/35 Scale 
Dedicated to Revell kit
Sculpted by TANKSFORMERS / Painted by A. Miniszewski
 price 16 €
The Mercedes Benz Wolf has been the backbone of the communications sections of the Bundeswehr for quite some time. Serving overseas with the troops, the canvas roof o the cars give the soldiers much-needed shade in the arid, cold and rainy climates they face on deployment. they can be opened and closed in many ways as you see by the reference photos below the sculptors used to make the set.
The most apparent part of the sculpt is the sagging and wrinkled canopy on top of the wolf.
Rolled up on the sides for easy access, the canopy looks really very good in this sculpt.

MB Wolf accessories Set
1/35 Scale
MAC27
Dedicated to Revell kit
Sculpted by TANKSFORMERS / Painted by A. Miniszewski
 price 16 €
Tanksformers sculpted this set of seven resin accessories or packs to suit your Mercedes Wolf vehicle. They used some of the photos below in sculpting the packs that come with the set.
Designed to fit into the Wolf. The spare tyre, rolled bedding, helmet, vest and jacket, the flak vest, canvas pack and Heckler & Koch G36, goggles, water flask and other assorted kit. Laid out in the Wolf it looks very convincing.

Statue
1/35 Scale
MAC28 
Sculpted by P. Szymczyk / Painted by A. Miniszewski
 price 16 €
sculpted in resin in 1/35th scale, this statue "Ave Maria" gives a feeling of peace and grace to your diorama. The facial features of the sculpt are as close to many sculpts of statues as we would see in reality, more than a real person's face.

Statue & Monk
1/35 Scale
MAC29 
price 30 €
What better than selling it by itself? This set of two combines the earlier released Monk from Mantis with the statue here for a holy reunion maybe?
These are available now from Mantis Miniatures, they will be from their Distributors Worldwide...
