French made Loire 46 fighter is the latest addition to our Spanish Civil War 1:144 scale aircraft collection. Just as usual lately, our Loire 46 model is born thanks to the co-operation with Plane Printer designer via Patreon; it is a single piece DLP 3D-printed miniature, so requiring no assembly at all.

I've just made available another set of War of Spanish Succession flags, in 1:100th, 1:72nd and 1:56th scales altogether as usual. Their subject is another jacobite Irish unit in Bourbon Spanish service - the Castelar Infantry Regiment, better known surely by its later name of Hibernia (this meaning "Ireland" in Latin).
More WSS flag sets coming soon!

Here it comes the "Stuka"! The "A" version of this iconic warbird is now available on Minairons website. Just as previous models in this range, our Ju-87 A is born thanks to the co-operation with Plane Printer designer via Patreon, consisting of a single piece DLP 3D-printed miniature, so requiring no assembly at all.
More SCW and WWII aircraft models coming soon!

We are proud to share our latest product in the War of Spanish Succession flags ranges, in all scales. This is the Saint Eulalia's flag of Barcelona town - its most outstanding symbol since 16th century at least, until its final demise in September 11th 1714. There were two variant of this emblem: the "flag" itself, large and square shaped, flown mainly in ceremonial events or outstanding days; and the "pennant" or battleflag, out of a lighter fabric. Its WSS version was rectangular in shape, but older versions seem to have been triangular and showing not St. Eulalia herself, but her allegoric yellow saltire instead.
Besides of the 1:100th, 1:72nd and 1:56th versions of this flag, we have also released a 1:144th scale sheet containing not just this latter, but the flags of two Catalan regiments as well.

Right after the release of ResinLab's 1:35th scale Mercier tank, here it comes now its 1:72nd scale version under Minairons ownership.
Model itself is even simpler to build than its larger sister, because it consists of just five parts - main hull, both tracks as well as MGs (which don't show at the image above, BTW). The larger parts are resin cast while the smaller ones are hard plastic.

Our partner company ResinLab (which is the brand our usual resin caster is behind) has recently released a new 1:35th scale Spanish Civil War AFV - the rare, ill-known Mercier tank, also sometimes known as Aragon tank - and we at Minairons are going to stock it on a permanent basis,
Model itself is quite easy to build, because it consists of just seven pieces - main hull, both tracks, hatchets and MGs. The larger parts are resin cast while the smaller ones are 3D printed.
A 1:72nd version of it is also coming soon.

I'm happy to share our latest SCW model kit - the 1937 Chevrolet 1.5 ton truck, now in 1:100th scale!
Model itself consists of three DLP 3D-printed parts comprising main hull, cabin roof and optional canvas top, complemented by two hard plastic fore wheels. Some assembly is still required, then.

Minairons' upcoming Age of Sail model kit will be the Atakebune, a fearsome Japanese warship widely used during the convulse Sengoku Jidai and early Edo periods. Atakebunes can be considered floating fortresses rather than true, seaworthy warships, so they were used mainly in coastal actions. Although provided with sails, they were actually powered by oars in combat - and we're going to foresee both propulsion methods, as it can be seen below.
Model itself will consist of a hull main part, which is going to be resin cast, complemented by a number of optional accessories such as two alternative deck housings, both sitting and standing masts, and two oar rows. This will allow eventual users to personalize to taste their ships, as well as giving to them either a seafaring or fighting configuration.
For instance, here you have two alternative propulsion configurations using the same on-deck housing.
We expect to release the Atakebune at some point this Summer.
