Hey Al,
Thanks for another thorough, comprehensive review !
Having the Bantam Staff Car and several of the Dingo Scout Cars, I'm very impressed with the quality of the British figures that MiniArt's producing.
Cheers

Hi John,

Thanks, you are one of the few who bother to respond to reviews, comments always appreciated.

I ilke the fact they are releasing the crews as separate sets as well as with the vehicles.

Hey Al,
Yeah, I really like their figure sets.
The odd thing about MiniArt is they've only been including two or three figures with their British scout cars.
They've included five figure sets with their Soviet and German "beutepanzer" T-70, T-70M, T-80, SU-76 and SU-76M kits for some time now.
We can only hope they come up with additional crew sets for the four or more Valentines in the works !!
Cheers

exceptional reveiw Alan. Helps when you have to buy on-line. Darn good looking figures with lots of potential. The mix of uniforms is splended and the poses are great.

Hi call-me-h,

Thanks for looking in, the undershirts area nice touch.

John,

Perhaps not 5 per vehicle but we are at least getting some flexible and useable British/Commonwealth troops, something I only dreamed off a few years ago .

Hi Bob,

Thanks, appreciated and glad you found it useful.

Cheers

Al

Good review Alan and nice figures. The two standing figures looking down could be used in a vignette titled "A hole has appeared in the road to Tobruk, the 8th Army are looking into it"

I'll get me coat
