New resin heads for MiniArt's second set of 35th scale German Tank Riders....

The second set of MiniArt's 1/35th scale tank riders arrives with new resin heads making an improvment to the already very nice set (& a great complimentary set to the volume I in this series). We look at them in our preview...

Improved resin heads for MiniArt's 35th scale German Tank Riders - Set 2

German Tank Riders - Set 2
From MiniArt
Kit No #53024
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 #53024 "German Tank Riders - Set 2" adds to the first set in this series - #53022 called (funilly enough) "German Tank Riders Set 1". This SECOND set 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.
Both sets from MiniArt with new resin heads are now available
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.
