Improved resin heads for MiniArt's 35th scale German Tank Riders - Set 1

Instead of just reprinting the plastic of their 1/35th scale tank riders and leaving it at that, MiniArt has included resin heads to improve the detail. We look at them in our preview...

Improved resin heads for MiniArt's 35th scale German Tank Riders - Set 1

 German Tank Riders - Set 1
From MiniArt
Kit No #53022
1/35th scale
The box contains four figures of German tank riders.
New resin heads are included in this set
MiniArt's new set number #53022 is called "German Tank Riders Set 1", and it contains - you guessed it - four figures in plastic of German soldiers from World War Two in camouflage smocks to sit on the deck of your German tank.

This set will look familiar to a lot of you as it was originall released in 2022 - but this set includes improved resin heads for that extr bit of nice dtail to the set.
In the artwork, they look quite placid, sitting passively on the deck as they travel along or at rest. It is hard to tell their actual body language from the sprues. We will have to make them up for you when they come out!
There is also a sprue of various German weapons of the era, the Kar.98, Mp-40, a Walther pistol, holstered pistols, map cases, ammo pouches, a bayonet and even a flare gun!
M1943 helmets, bread bags, bayonets, an entrenching tool, flasks and gas mask canisters are also included in a vast array of gear.
Not wanting to leave anything out, the MG 42 7.92×57mm Mauser general-purpose machine gun with ammo belt, bipod and gear is also included.
This kit will be released next month.
