Miniart 1/35 G7117 1,5t 4X4 Cargo Truck with Winch (35389)

This time we are going to check Miniart 1/35 G7117 1,5t 4X4 Cargo Truck with Winch (35389). Kit comes as the fresh version of relatively new plastic. Name says it all, so you can expect some new parts inside. Moreover, boxart hints on some additional items - figures and buckets. Packaging is typical here, all frames come sealed in one plastic bag. Let's open it and take a closer look together.

I show more parts in this video-review.

First frame comes with various parts for the truck. Here you will find wheel fenders as well as bonnet and fuel tank. Suspension parts might take some time to get together due to their size.

Yes, kit features nicely detailed engine. It would be a good idea to think on how to expose it and maybe add some wiring.

Front cab should be assembled out of separate panels. Molding quality looks great.

I would recommend to be extra careful with thin parts. In some cases it might be even safe to replace them with metal wire.

Kit features plastic wheels and this is a great feature. Such thing will be easier to paint and weather.

Rear section should be quick to assemble, there are all necessary guiding elements on it.

In the upper left corner you can see special templates for PE parts. Note also separate doors which might come handy for diorama projects.

Both figures come in typical design for this scale. Molding quality looks fine, so it is just a matter of careful painting.

Here you can see the new frame which is necessary for winch version. Assembly process should be quite straightforward, so no worries.

Clear frame comes in the separate plastic bag, together with decals. Molding quality looks fine, but there are no masks in the kit.

Of course, there is also unpainted PE fret included. I recommend to use all parts for even more impressive appearance. Another nice bonus - metal chain.

Decals come from Decograph, so quality looks great. You can see all markings on the photo below.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. I show all pages in the video-review.

New truck can be considered as another great version of the relatively new kit from Miniart. In my opinion you will get all the necessary parts for an interesting project in popular scale. Moreover, it is nice to see figures included too. The only thing that is worth mentioning - G7117 is definitely not for beginners, so be sure to have the right skills before starting such project.
