I wonder what are the differences from the earlier euro tram kit they produced.

Just "spot the difference" ( I agree the "European" and the "German" ones are rather close, but the Devil is in the details...)

Miniart has some kind of solution to their website which makes the images available sort of "on request" when clicking on them from inside their website. The link to the image becomes useless after a while.
That is why I did not bother with trying to include an image.
I can see the first of Frenchys images but that is only because I have looked at it from Miniarts website and the image file is still in the cache of my browser.

Short answer: Almost everything :-)
Body, roof, window framing, doors, chassis, small parts, thingy to connect to the electric lines (pantograph??)...

Me: "OK, the stash is too big. Gotta stop buying new stuff and build what I already have!"

Miniart" "You sure about that?"

Yep that would be right, odds just shortened on an announcement they’re going to produce another kind of tram too…

I'm glad to see this, since I adore the Miniart trams and built two of them.
