MiniArt Anti-Tank Obstacles in 1/35 scale

[PARSEHTML]<p class="componentheading">MiniArt Anti-Tank Obstacles in 1/35 scale</p>
<p>Anti-Tank obstacles of this type were known as Czech Hedgehogs.<br />In the past Tamiya and Italeri did some,but I think it's justified that MiniArt comes with a new offering.<br /><br />MiniArt comes with the same size box,that they also use for their figure and other accessoires kits.<br /><br /><br /></p>
<div><a href="media/kunena/attachments/725/hfed807c.JPG" rel="" style="color: #000000;" title="hfed807c.JPG"><img src="/images/articles/MiniArt_Ron/IMG_4822.JPG" alt="IMG 4822" style="margin-right: auto; display: block; margin-left: auto;" title="hfed807c.JPG" /></a><a href="media/kunena/attachments/725/h8fd21d0.JPG" rel="" title="h8fd21d0.JPG"><br /></a></div>
<p><br /><br />Instructions as usual on the back side of the box.<br />Recommended paints call for Red Brown,Dark Grey and White. (what I ignored)<br /><br /><br /></p>
<div><img src="/images/articles/MiniArt_Ron/IMG_4823.JPG" alt="IMG 4823" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" /></div>
<p><br /><br />You get 12 x sprue Ba1,each sprue can be made into 1 Anti-Tank obstacle.<br />Oddly enough I found 13 sprues in the box.<br /><br /><br /></p>
<div><a href="media/kunena/attachments/725/h598f3d8.JPG" rel="" title="h598f3d8.JPG"><img src="/images/articles/MiniArt_Ron/IMG_4824.JPG" alt="IMG 4824" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="h598f3d8.JPG" /></a></div>
<p><br /><br />One thing I wasn't pleased with however;you will have to use some scalpel or knive,<br />files and sandpaper...because the connection points between the beams are just too small!&nbsp;<img src="/media/kunena/emoticons/pinch.png" alt=":pinch:" width="20" height="20" title=":pinch:" /><br /><br /><br /></p>
<div><a href="media/kunena/attachments/725/hba53908.JPG" rel="" title="hba53908.JPG"><img src="/images/articles/MiniArt_Ron/IMG_4825.JPG" alt="IMG 4825" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="hba53908.JPG" /></a></div>
<p><br /><br />Painted and weathered it turned out like this:<br /><br /><br /></p>
<div><a href="media/kunena/attachments/725/h5f72026.JPG" rel="" title="h5f72026.JPG"><img src="/images/articles/MiniArt_Ron/IMG_4826.JPG" alt="IMG 4826" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="h5f72026.JPG" /></a></div>
<p><br /><br />Come to think about it,you can always use the Czech Hedgehogs to make the Culin Hedgerow Cutter,<br />found on US tanks,as the US Army did just that with them as they found them on the Normandy beaches.&nbsp;<img src="/media/kunena/emoticons/cheerful.png" alt=":cheer:" width="20" height="20" title=":cheer:" /><br /><br />Got this kit from the local hobby shop for 14,30 Euro,but also saw it from a trader at a show for just 11,50 Euro.</p>
