Miniart has released a nice vignette or diorama essential - a set of ammo crates with Soviet World War 2 tank ammunition. This set contains six sprues molded in light gray styrene. Each tree contains the parts for one complete four-round wooden storage box, two rounds of armor-piercing ammunition, two rounds of high explosive ammunition, and one spent shell.
This set provides you then with six complete storage boxes, 12 rounds each of HE and AP, and six spent shells. If you're displaying a T-34/85, SU-85, or other 85mm combat vehicle, this set is just what you need to add a dynamic element to your model.
My sincere thanks to HobbyTerra.com for this review sample!
