hi alanmac. so if ya put a Hornet head on a MiniArt figure , does it really show ? do ya end up with a noticly small headed figure ? -- im not being funny or flipant , im just wondering .♡♡

Personally can't see using the cable spools but the rest, esp. the panzerschrecks are most welcome as always. Way to go MiniArt!

It does really depend on the figure set you are using from Miniart. Certainly the Alpine ones I've tried look to small. I got away with one figure okay with a hornet replacement. Sorry about the blurred image, took it with web cam years ago. It's really a word of caution rather than a blanket judgement on all the figures. Newer stuff does seem to be smaller. Here is a comparison the other way. A Miniart/Tank resin head on a plastic figure somebody else did. Their original plastic figure on the right full sized, my reduced head on the left using Photoshop. It seems early stuff by Miniart was created by the same sculptor as what Tank used. A look at both ranges will show what I mean. Alan

The figure from the old Tank Maintenance set is one of their older efforts and is very large; approaching 1/32 or 1/30 scale. Their newer kits are very much in the 1/35 range and I find they match Dragon and Masterbox quite well.

I really like the scale representation of the Dragon figures as they seem realistic without being too tall. Some of the Tamiya releases had the soldiers with tiny waists and no chest. You hardly look heroic (or even realistic) if your gear buries you. Oddly, I thought that the crew figures that Tamiya released with the FAMO and trailer set were a touch large. Over-compensation?

I was just about to mention bathtub, shower and toilet items, outhouses, etc.. Ideal for bunker and house interiors. And also my previous mention of portable generators and compressors. Another item would be a bunch of different radio cable reels. That would be great! Maybe add some frequency signs/flags too. I hope Miniart is listening!
