1/600 Chinese War Junk


I'm pleased to share our latest 1:600 scale Age of Sail ship model release - today, a Chinese warship from Ming and Qing dynasties period, modeled after a Fú Chuán type warship (福船). Such kind of large vessels served as escorts in the famous Zheng He's Treasury Fleet expeditions around the Indian Ocean and beyond.


Model itself consists of a high quality resin hull as well as five white metal parts for masts and sails. Kit also includes by default a set of Qing Chinese ensigns and flags.


This new model kit retails at €12.36 (+VAT where applying).

Persian naval flags bunch

Persian Navy

We've devoted this week's releases to the Persian Navy in the Age of Sail, with two new flag sets comprising ensigns and minor flags from both Safavid and Afsharid dynasties (late 16th to late 18th centuries). Worth to be remarked that the white background ensigns are fully interchangeable from one period to the other, because a white flag with a red sabre was the traditional Persian war ensign. Otherwise, coloured flags are own and exclusive of each dynasty (green for Safavids, yellow and striped for Afsharids).


It was also scheduled a third release, devoted to Persian Gulf trader flags in the Age of Sail - as you can see above. However, a small latest hour issue has prevented us from releasing this set alongside with the other two. Anyway, as such issue is to be solved within a few days, we have chosen to make it available too - under pre-order status.

All three sets can be already acquired from our website.

Decorative plates anyone?

I'm somewhat uncertain whether this initiative will be well received, but we at Minairons and ResinLab have thought that maybe some among you might be interested by products like SCW times factory plates. As an example, this one below that we've just released this week.


This particular product is a resin cast plate in one single piece, and measures some 11 cm long, 2.8 cm wide and 0.6 cm thick. It can be found at our website's merchandising page.

New WSS Austrophile Grenadiers


Our range of War of the Spanish Succession 1/72nd scale figures keeps growing at a steady pace - perhaps a bit slower than some would like, but this is the one I can afford! This month's release consists of a set of 4 Spanish Austrophile, or Austro-catalan, Infantry grenadiers in all different marching poses.

New set is already available and retails at €4.92 as usual (+VAT where applying). Here you have a link to our current WSS range:


Figures of this new range are specifically designed for being compatible with Zvezda's GNW plastic miniatures, so they should be considered as 'pure' 1/72 or 25mm, rather than 20mm as our SCW range is.
