Nigel MiniArt does seem to be ploughing a pretty esoteric furrow, it must be said. But if you have a need for pigeons, look no further!

Guus Saw this model at an IPMS show in Brussels years ago of a WW1 London bus modified to a pigeon carrier.
Complete with a gaggle of resting 1:35 pigeons and festooned with, uhm, .... "streaking"all over the vehicle.
Definitely something out of the ordinary but very true to life: https://iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205244788

Gavin -thats a secret- Its sad too because their new World of Tanks T-34-85 kit features their brand new interior T-34-85 they released only a couple of years ago, but they're just reboxing a relatively ancient kit with this one...

tankbrusher I buy mine within the next days and will report back. For now, from looking at the pictures: They fixed the two things that were most dominant to me: First we get proper decals for this kit. The tracks seem to be redone too. The old ones have the late outer pattern from Elefant with a guide horn on each link - this combination never existed. We look at 500,600 and two 640mm wide tracks in context of the Typ 101 / 102, ideal would be 600mm wide track with guidehorn on each link or 640 with normal spacing but early pattern. I do have the old rebox already. The kit holds itself very well, even against the new book by Michael Fröhlich "Der andere Tiger", when rivet counting is kept to a looking for features thing. (Please excuse my bad English, it has been a long day ; )
tankbrusher Got it, can confirm: Decals changed, Manual changed. Tracks are the same s*it than before. Box says ,,new glueable rubber tacks". Contacted Italeri before calling it wat it seems to me atm ; ) Last hope had not died yet. (Compared against No. 278, the first release).

tankbrusher Got an answer from Italeri: Material used for the tracks changed, mold is still the same.

Gavin -thats a secret- Ah so only the decals, manual, and track material changed. Good for newer people to use when building this kit and dont went to shell out lots of money for PE and a more engineered set.
