German Tank Riders, Ardennes 1944
From MiniArt Models
1/35th scale
Kit No #35411
Four figures & three sprues of weapons & equipment included...
MiniArt has released another new kit with figures from WWII in 35th scale - "German Tank Riders, Ardennes 1944".  Modellers always want to see more soldiers doing things to use in their dioramas, and German tank riders in particular.

There are many great references for Germans riding on tanks and other vehicles during the "Bulge". Here during the last German counteroffensive on the western front, a German tank unit moves through a village in the Hohe Venn region, near Malmedy, Belgium, on January 6, 1945.
In the kit, there are four figures, each on their own sprue are the basis of this kit.
Although this is not a special edition kit, the set comes with several sprues (three)  of weapons and equipment to suit German late WWII soldiers. One sprue houses just the equipment, with the M43 helmets, gas mask cannisters, flasks & entrenching tools, bayonets, bread bags and ammo pouches
The second sprue comes filled with MG42 parts, with the gun, ammo belt, bipod in extended or folded status.
Lastly, a plethora of weapons and ammo - Mp-40s, Kar.98s, a Walther & flare pistols, pistols in pouches and open pouches to show a removed pistol, ammo for all of these, map pouches, knives and an ammo box. Pretty much everything a German WWII soldier would carry on these three sprues.
