Minairons next release

Once back from holidays, it's time for making things run again. As a proof of such, I'd like to share with Minairons friends our upcoming release, no other than BT-5 fast tank! - at 1/72nd scale. Here below you have an ultimate sample:


Hull and mudguards are cast in one single piece, while running gears and turret are additional separate parts. Worth to be noted that following the suggestion of one customer, gun barrel will be neither resin or white metal but highly detailed brass instead! Such 45mm barrels made by RB-Models from Poland will also be separately available, so as to improve your T-26 tanks or similarly armed vehicles!


If everything keeps running as reasonably good as so far, we expect to release BT-5 fast tank in September. It will most likely retail in single model boxes inclusive of a decals sheet for Soviet, Finnish, Turkish and Spanish service (both sides) - same than for our T-26.

Holidays week

We're out for holidays since 1st to 7th August. This is why you might find that any your eventual e-mails to us is not being responded in due time, or the status of any eventual order you place does not change during that week.

We'll be back home on next weekend; apologies for eventual inconveniences!

New range ahoy!

Minairons Miniatures was brought to life by manufacturing figures, vehicles and accessories related to the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), and this is the period and range we have been devoting our hardest efforts so far --at such at an extent that "Minairons" has likely become a synonym of "SCW stuff" to many hobbyists.

Ships However, our brand wasn't born to confine itself to one single range of miniatures only, but with the explicit aim to cover as much as possible all periods of Spanish Peninsula nations military history instead; so that we've decided to start a radically new range.

Every shot aimed to new targets always implies some risk of missing the shot, and such could be the case now. As sayings in most languages use to say though, for winning you must dare first, so here it goes our bid: we're going to start a range of 1/600 scale waterline ships of the Age of Sail, normally belonging to late 17th or early 18th centuries. Models will follow our usual trend of being CAD-designed for best detailing, accurately produced with quality materials and insultingly easy to build.

03ABS001 Following another of our dominant trends too, our upcoming models pretend to be compatible and complementary to those of other brands already producing age of sail ships, such as Peter Pig or Skytrex for instance.

We have already started design of a first model, the Manila Galleon --the huge 4-masted pride of the Spanish Pacific fleet. Other models in the pipeline are lateen-sailed xebecs, hybrid xebecs, WSS warships and galleys. We intensely hope this new range comes to please you!

1938 Grand Prix ERA type B racer


Our 1938 Grand Prix next set is progressing fast and easy. We have now completed the making of the first racing car such set is to include, the British ERA Type B racer. We have designed and produced it at 1:72 and 1:100 scales altogether, so as to be able to launch them both in a short lapse of time between them.


As customary in Minairons, these models are willingly easy to assemble while retaining the most possible detail: just one part for hull, four wheels, two shafts and driver. This is what its 1:72 scale version looks like once assembled:


And this is what both scales cars look like side by side (the 1:100th one is already primed too, this is why of their differing shades of colour):

We are proud to announce that 1/72 Trubia-Naval tank will be released Monday 30th May, once its boxes come out from printshop. While looking forward to these, we've already made the tank available for pre-order here.
