Dust Mickey ARV Review
Sci-fi walkers from the imaginary world of Dust are becoming more popular with modelers, so we checked one kit out.

Dust is an alternative World War Two storyline from the mind of comic-book artist Paolo Parente. Set in 1947, blocs of newly-allied nations are pitted against one another in a fight to the death.

They are fitting over the control of a new ore called Vk which lies behind the creation of a new range of combat robots & walkers.

One such walker found its way to our door. It’s called the Mickey Arv (D480050) & is in 1:48th scale. It depicts an armoured recovery vehicle fielded by the American nations & its allies.

Inside the box are five sprues of olive green plastic containing the main components. All are well cast with some nice surface detail. There’s also a box of 30 or so well-cast resin pieces in a dark grey resin.

The instructions are brief but clear & precise. One of the really pleasant surprises was to see that the decal sheet contains some great colour scheme options & lovely nose-art type images of sexy heartthrobs to decorate your kit.

As a final touch, there’s a base with a non-slip texture on which to mount your finished model.

These kits are a fun diversion from modelling “real world” subjects with their precise colour schemes & markings. With these sci-fi masterpieces you are only limited by your imagination, so we’ll be tackling more of these kits soon.
