Title: Miniart releases 1/35 LGOC B-Type Bus
Post by: Borsos on October 12, 2019, 05:32:03 AM
Dear all,

I think these are good news, although it isnít flying:
https://miniart-models.com/de/products/39001-b-type-military-omnibus/
And I have seen Miniart is also prepairing a set of 1/35 pigeons, so I think a pigeon carrier version of the bus isnít too far away. Statements from miniart to plan the release of WWI kits already exist for a while. Maybe the bus is the beginning?
Exciting news, at least I think so.

Best regards
Andreas

Nice, will have to get one and compare it with the old Airfix 1/32 B Type Bus 'Ole Bill'.

Looking at their website it seems MiniArt has several versions of the bus planned. It looks amazing and will be a feature for diorama fans as well as vehicle modellers.

The Forum will be taking a close interest in this new line of WW1 kits. Its great to see kit manufacturers delivering new WW1 items for us.

I would prefer to see more vehicles and equipment in 1/32 to go with the aircraft. I will probably get these eventually, but it would be nice to have everything in the same scale.

The Airfix one is already 1/32

I do have this kit (the civilian version), not built it yet. I will get the minicraft kit to help update and add detail for it. I will have to find some reference material as well. I also have the truck from Tommy's War. It just would be nice to have everything in the same scale for size comparison. Whenever I see a picture with the old male tanks with no one in the picture for scale, I think they should be huge and kinda disappointed as to how small they are, especially given the crew sizes.
