1:144 Hawker-Hispano 'Fury' fighter

10GEA006

I'm pleased to show our latest 1:144th scale Spanish Civil War aircraft, the Hawker-Hispano 'Fury' (perhaps better known as Spanish Fury). This elegant biplane won the 1935 contest to replace Nieuport 52 as the main fighter of Spain. However, the Civil War early outbreak prevented the Republican Air Force to have enough of them available.

10GEA006

Just as previous models in this range, our Hawker Hispano is born thanks to the co-operation with Plane Printer designer through Patreon. It retails in box as a single piece DLP 3D-printed miniature, so requiring no assembly at all. Box reverse includes a thotoughful painting schema.

1:144 Heinkel He-112 fighter

I'm delighted to present our latest 1:144th scale Spanish Civil War aircraft --the ill-known Heinkel He-112, main competitor to Messerschmitt Bf-109 for the 1933 Luftwaffe fighter contract. Despite losing the contest, small numbers of it were nonetheless used by Germany for a short time and several more were acquired by Spain, Hungary and Romania. Japan also purchased and used about a dozen He-112s before giving priority to the Mitsubishi A6M 'Zero'.

10GEA011

Just as previous models in this range, our He-112 is born thanks to the co-operation with Plane Printer designer through Patreon. It retails in box as a single piece DLP 3D-printed miniature, so requiring no assembly at all. Box reverse includes a painting schema and markings guide.

It is already available at Minairons' website. Hope you like it!

Notice to British customers

The enforcement of Brexit in matters of import/export between EU and UK has, without a doubt, had a huge impact on our consumption habits: in addition to the ever increasing transport costs, we have now the interference of Customs services - with the delays and taxes that their job entails.

For all those of our dear British customers who are rightfully worried by those growing drawbacks, I'm happy to acknowledge you have now McKeeman Models at your disposal for ordering Minairons Miniatures stuff within the UK.

Aids

Based in Dunfermline (Fife, Scotland), they have been performing as a retailer of Minairons' stuff from a long since, albeit focused mainly on our 1:72nd scale ranges so far. Despite of this, Stephen from McKeeman Models will be eager to take orders from other Minairons' ranges. As a matter of fact, they've already just imported some of our 1:100th stuff within their latest backorder.

McKeeman Models can be accessed via website (www.mckeemanmodels.com), eBay, Amazon and Facebook (www.facebook.com/McKeemanModels). Do not hesitate to contact them if needed, for they will be happy to kindly assist you!

Some downloads, and Newsletter #66 out

Once back from a short vacation, I'm pleased to announce release of a new issue of our e-Newsletter. For those not subscribed to it yet, that bulletin can be read from this installment on Minairons miniatures' Facebook page.

eNews

Also, I've taken advantage of those holidays for preparing a handful of gaming aids for free download, following recent requests from our friends in Reus' XXIXth RPG and Strategy Days and Montmeló's Xth Napoleonic & Black Powder Open. Such gaming aids consist of Catalan language versions of Quick Reference Sheets for Too Fat Lardies' Bag the Hun, Ganesha Games' Galleys & Galleons and Sam Mustafa's Maurice; as well as much needed Action Cards for SCW ambiented BtH.

Aids

None of these new gaming aids are Minairons' own products by any means, but just gaming accessories designed by myself as member of a local wargaming club. The above mentioned rulesets are property of their respective publishers, and their acquisition is still needed for gaming - they all are strongly recommended!

Painting our Austrophile Grenadiers

Back from the Montmeló town Xth Napoleonic & Black Powder Open, and already on holidays (theoretically at least), I've been pleasantly surprised by another YouTube video tutorial from Minis, My Way, where the author takes an approach to our 1:72nd scale WSS Austro-catalan Grenadiers:

Don't they look terrific?

Holidays week

Minairons miniatures website will be closed for holidays since today 12th until Friday 21st of October.

vacances

Apologies for eventual inconveniences, but this is a much needed vacation! - the only one we're going to enjoy this year...

Nevertheless, this Saturday 15thwe'll be attending the Xth Napoleonic & Black Powder Open of Montmeló town (Catalonia), where we're going to run a couple of demo games, as well as setting a small sale stand with some of our Black Powder era products.

Montmeló

This year favourites for a demo are Galleys & Galleons and (despite a bit out of period) Bag the Hun with SCW aircraft.

After this event, my beautiful wife and I are going to discreetly vanish for some days amidst the Pyrenees range steep valleys, in some place only known to minairons, dones d'aigua and other fairy beings ;)

Coming back soon!

1:100 Hispano Suiza T60 "Torpedo"

15GEV042

We've just released a further Spanish Civil War vehicle in 1:100th scale - the iconic Hispano Suiza "Torpedo" bus, several variants of which were extensively used as a transport by the Spanish Republic's Assault Guards police.

This new model kit is born thanks to our patronage to Panzer Printer Ukrainian designer through Patreon; it is sold as a single piece DLP 3D-printed miniature, so requiring no assembly at all.

Hispano Suiza "Torpedo" bus is already available on Minairons website.
