    Hi Stelios

    Thanks for sharing the videos

    Good to see actual construction being done

    The sets you show all look to be useful to the modeller

    Thanks for sharing

    Stay safe

    MiniArt figures are generally pretty good, some of the newer ones are excellent, I've built quite a few over the years. They are a bit on the bigger side, especially the earlier releases, when compared to other manufacturers, which is not a problem unless you plan on using Legend replacement heads as they are on the small side. Hornet heads fit fine, as do Armor35. And you will probably want to replace the heads, especially the earlier sets. Some now come with resin heads included, hopefully they continue with this trend as they look much better, and are reasonably priced to boot. Their Special Edition sets are fantastic value for the money with all the extra weapons and/or equipment that you get.

    I have quite a few of Miniart's 1/16 figure series, but I don't think I have any of their 1/35 sets. I may have to get some, after seeing these. The sculpting looks very nice, especially for the scale and medium.

    I've used Mini-Art figures for a while now, as crew for AFVs and as "extras" in dioramas. As Kimmo says, they are a shade big compared with Tamiya and ICM, but not so much that they look odd against a 1/35 vehicle. I also agree with Stelios, they do go together with only liquid cement - no filler needed. Sculpting is excellent, poses are natural and they are well priced as compared with Alpine etc.

    And the Set German Tank Crew Winter 1943-1945 painted for a friend. The figures are traveling to the new owner.

    German Winter Tank Crew 1943-1945, Miniart Set 35021
    Painted by Grigoris Marmatakis
    Grigoris painted this set using the triades Panzer Aces System by Vallejo Acrylics, first using the airbrush and then the brush. This is a commission work for a friend so these figures were going to be used in his diorama. None extra parts were used so you can see the painted set straight out of the box. The following Panzer Aces colours have been used:
    FLESH: 341, 342, 343
    LEATHER: 333, 317, 321
    UNIFORM (WHITE): 333, 344
    FIELDGREY: 333, 334, 338
