Miniart 1/35 G7105 4x4 Panel Van (35405)

This time we are going to check Miniart 1/35 G7105 4x4 Panel Van (35405). Fresh release comes as yet another version of the American truck in popular scale. Nevertheless, this time we get it with closed rear section, and this type might be an interesting thing to assemble. Overall packaging is typical for this brand, so all frames come sealed in one plastic bag. Let's open everything and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with another version of this truck.

Watch this video-review where I show all parts even closer.

First two frames might be familiar to some modelers if they already assembled truck from Miniart. We still get the separate bonnet as well as nicely detailed suspension and interior.

Kit comes with nicely detailed engine out of the box. It might be good idea to think on how to show this feature of your model.

On the photo above you can see some interior parts and suspension bits. Right upper corner is dedicated to special templates which will be used to shape the PE parts.

Plastic wheels look great and definitely a good thing to have in the box. Note also plastic version of the front guard, which can be used instead of PE one.

Van parts come on the next frames. On the first one you can see roof and floor panels. Interior lining will have to be glued inside.

All doors are molded separately, so you can open them on your model if necessary. All large panels have guiding elements, and overall alignment won't be an issue.

Those large panels will glued from the inside, and it is great if you plan to open all doors. There are guiding pins which should help to align these panels with outer ones.

Clear frame is packed into separate plastic bag. Overall molding quality looks great, but there are no masks included.

Unpainted PE fret is full of parts, so be ready to work with those. In some case it will be necessary to use tweezers.

Decals are printed in Cartograf and quality looks great. There are all necessary symbols for five marking options, which you can see on the photo below.

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

New van should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is a perfect choice for some diorama build in 1/35 scale. Just add some figurines and you will get a nice scene. Moreover, you are getting all necessary parts out of the box, so this is definitely a good choice for modelers who don't want to search for some extra stuff. The only thing required from you is careful assembly and weathering. Boxart hints on some ideas, but it might be a good idea to find some references as well. :)
