Miniart 1/35 StuG III Ausf.G Alkett Prod. (35352)

This review is dedicated to Miniart 1/35 StuG III Ausf.G Alkett Prod. (35352). First thing to note here is the "Interior Kit" sign on the front side of the box. As you can guess, it means that manufacturer included nicely detailed internals and this might be handy for some diorama ideas. Parts count is crazy here, so box is filled with sprues up to the top. Overall packaging is typical for this scale, and I just need to cut through bag and show you what is inside.
By the way, here you can read review with figures which might be handy for this build.

Watch this video where you will see all parts closer.

We are going to start with one of the biggest frames here. Keep in mind that we are dealing with interior kit, so you will have a lot of drivetrain parts here.

Suspension is fixed here, even though some professionals might play with positioning of each arm. Wooden panels will be used for stowage on the rear section.

All hatches are separate and can be assembled in open position. Overall those parts look great, note also several versions of muzzle brake on the left sprue.

It might be also good idea to replace some of the thin elements with metal wire. For example, antennas might be a good candidate for that.

Kit features quite detailed engine, and the only thing that you can add is wiring for even more impressive look.

Side skirts are nicely detailed from both sides. Note that all engine bay hatches can be assembled open too.

Here we see more of the engine parts as well as some pioneer tools

Whole hull should be glued out of separate panels, but this is something expected from such shape. All attachment points are thin and easy to separate.

Superstructure should be glued out of several panels. There are alignment elements which should help you with overall alignment.

Plastic track is a big plus for this kit, but you should be ready to assemble those separate links one by one. Roadwheels feature some tire details out of the box.

Thin parts might be tricky to separate and clean, so be ready to carefully work around them.

Drive sprockets are separated into two parts, attachment points are on teeth top. Whole interior will require careful planning of painting process, as it might be difficult to adjust everything later.

Last frame will bring you large panels for the lower hull section.

Clear frame looks good and comes packed into separate plastic bag. Keep in mind that there are no masks included.

Today's kit features two unpainted PE fret. One is for schurzen, and another one for internal and external details.

Decals look great and feature all necessary symbols for several markings. You can see them all on the photo below.

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

New kit should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is an interesting option for those who are not afraid of crazy parts count. Moreover, you should be ready to work with tiny elements which can be installed only with tweezers. Yes, there are some tedious procedures, but final result will bring you truly impressive kit with no rivals in the same scale. The only thing to think about - how to expose the interior. :D
