A very welcome set from Miniart. Apart from the flash on my set the Officer's web belt looked a little off to me. The buckles on the back seem too far apart. It is a small thing and congrats to Miniart for giving us the first British/Commonwealth AFV crew in plastic.

Hey Al,
A great review of what appears to be a very good set of figures !!!
This is very encouraging news with regards to the other British/Commonwealth sets MiniArt is planning to release.
Hopefully MiniArt might consider producing some British vehicles in North Africa, Italy and the MTO and those used by the Soviet Union under Lend Lease.
One that comes to mind is the Valentine and all it's various versions.......hint......hint......
Cheers

Hi Pat,

Well spotted on the buckles, they are a bit far apart and agree about the flash, but a good basic set of troops.

John,

Yes, looks like we will finally get a decent range of troops and more to come I hope. They have the Dingo in various versions and the Bantam on route, so who knows, maybe a new Universal Ccarrier or Loyd which would be a first in plastic. As I just bought an AA Loyd I'll opt for the 2nd although with all the carriers I've built it could well be a carrier

These are great days for us with all the new British/Commmonwealth kits that have come out, but I'm really interested in seeing who will be the first to produce some new trucks, staff cars and bikes!!! and Tristart have a first there with the Welbike.
