MiniArt 1/35 85mm Shells with Ammo Boxes

KIT #: 35079
PRICE: $15.50 SRP
DECALS: For the shells and boxes
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken


This is one of those things that diorama people love. The kit has several identical sprues that offers six cases and two different shell types with four shells per case. I'm assuming one is armor piercing and the other is high explosive. The cases have all the proper compartmentalization and partitions that you would have found with the actual item. The molding on these sprues is superb. No molding glitches with seam lines that are barely noticeable so clean up will be a breeze.

Instructions are printed on the back of the box. This includes color information using a variety of paint brands. There are also color images of the munitions and boxes with the boxes apparently either in unpainted wood or dark green. The set includes decals for the rounds as well as the usual stencils on the box.

With not that many parts per unit, a short assembly line will have these built up in no time and add a lot of interest to your next diorama using this size of munitions.  


A really fine diorama accessory that I'm sure will be well received.
