Miniart 1/24 D8532 German Traffic Tractor (24007)

This review is dedicated to Miniart 1/24 D8532 German Traffic Tractor (24007). Kit comes as yet another version of the German tractor in popular car scale. Such thing might be an interesting project to work on, so I decided to take a closer look. Here I have to remind you that this model was also released by the same brand in 1/35 scale. Well, now we get a bigger version. Packaging is typical for Miniart, and all parts are sealed into one plastic bag.
By the way, here you can read review with the previous version in the same scale.

Watch this video where I show all parts even closer.

First frame is the biggest in the kit, and you will find drivetrain parts here. Overall parts division and design is similar to what we saw in the previous version. There are a lot of premolded features, so be sure to bring those out in your build.

Wheel fenders are molded separately. The rear ones come with supports in place, what should make installation easier and faster.

Bigger scale brings even more features on the parts. The only question will be how to show those on the finished model.

Here we see parts which are exclusive for today's version. Large panel is actually a roof for your tractor.

Another cool feature from Miniart - plastic wheels. This element should look way more convincing in comparison with typical rubber/vinyl offering.

Whole design for those is quite smart, and I don't think you will have any problems. Those parts definitely can be considered as an advantage of the kit.

Sidewalls and rim parts can be found on the next frame. Note that such design will help you to avoid masks as it is possible to paint wheel rims separately.

Clear frame is packed into separate plastic bag, so it should be intact. Decals are printed in Cartograf, and overall quality looks great. On the photo below you can see all four marking options which are included in the kit.

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

Today's tractor should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is as nice as the previous models in smaller scale. Moreover, some modelers will be happy to get bigger parts and model without any of PE parts. I also think there is a huge potential for some additional details with help of scratch-building. It is also interesting to see whether Miniart will release some driver figurines in 1/24 scale. :)
