Covid-19 update

Following orders issued yesterday March 29th 2020 by the Spanish Government regarding confinement and non-essential activities shutdown, our website will remain temporarily closed for 2 weeks' time, as our eBay store as well.

We expect to reopen next April 10th 2020 - gods willing! In the meanwhile, please keep in touch and stay safe.

Any further change will be eventually announced right here, in this blog.

Maserati 8CTF racer

Here you have the latest addition to our 1/72 scale Grand Prix range, Maserati 8CTF. Just as the four previous models, this is an overall simple model kit consisting of just seven high quality resin parts (main body, wheels and axles), complemented by a white metal driver.

It's already available as a blister kit in our webstore. A 1/100 scale version of it is expected to come along this year too.

Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion flags

I'm happy to present you the latest addition to our Spanish Civil War flag ranges at either 1:100, 1:72 and 1:56 scales: those of Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion, a mainly Canadian unit belonging to the ever glorious XVth International Brigade.

Our ever growing SCW flag listing currently comprises the following sets: 1:100 or 15mm, 1:72 or 20mm, and 1:56 or 28mm. All them are presented as DIN A7 sized paper sheets with three textured flags each.

New 1:100 and 1:72 Harley-Davidson Flathead

Please allow me a few words to explain my long lasting silence of the last weeks. Last month, my wife suffered an accident by which she got her left ball joint broken into pieces, after slipping on a wet pavement and falling to ground with so a bad luck that all her (otherwise light) weight struck violently onto her left knee. Such unfortunate accident has left me with little time free for anything else than taking your kind orders, so nearly no other noticeable activity from Minairons has been observed for one long month. She's recovering fast and in good shape though, so I'm currently feeling pretty optimistic --despite she's going to require intensive care for a while still, so my own activity isn't going to retake a regular rate for some weeks yet.

While awaiting the moment to resume a regular activity, let me show you a latest hour addition to our 1:100th and 1:72nd scales SCW ranges: Harley-Davidson Flathead motorcycle, a vehicle widely used in Spain --especially by the Assault Guards but also by other Republican regular units.

This is in fact the vehicle-only version of a rider-bike set already released both in 1:100th and 1:72nd scales some time ago, thus allowing to users the chance to use the motorcycle separately from a rider, for their own purposes. The 15mm version blister comprises two motorbikes while just one the 20mm version --both inclusive of optional stands, and both selling at €2.95 the blister.

More exciting news are awaiting their turn to be released. Please keep tuned!
