Review type: Inbox preview

Mini Art has some ammunition sets in their product range, including Soviet 57-mm & 76-mm shells w/ ammo boxes.
The kit comes as side opening box, with the sprues in one bag. Assembly and painting instructions in full colour are shown on the back side. A small decal sheet is also provided.

Each sprue contains 23 parts and is included six times.
Three types of grenades are included. The first is a 76mm UOF-354 HE fragmentation shell, the second is a solid shot UBR-271K with 57mm AP-T shell, the third a76mm UBR-354P with AP sub- calibre projectile BR-240P.
Each sprue has two pieces of each ammunition type included, plus two empty cartridges.
That means you have 12 pieces of each ammunition provided. With all in all 36 grenades, you can fill two boxes with each type and have two spares left.

The kit has alternate parts for the inserts of the stowage boxes, depending what type you put into the box.

The parts for the ammo boxes show a very nice wood grain texture, which will come out nicely when properly painted and weathered.


All parts are free of any flash or pin marks.
The decals contain full stencils for the grenades and the ammo boxes, with options for the three types of ammo included. All stencils are readable and printed in black.

Conclusion: A nice little kit with excellent details. It should bring a nice touch to a reloading or supply scene.

Many thanks to Mini Art for the review sample.
