Master Box Ltd 1/35 'Photo for the Newspaper': Russia 1944

KIT: Master Box Ltd 1/35 'Photo for the Newspaper': Russia 1944
KIT #: MB 3529
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken


Here is another fine kit from the folks at MasterBox Ltd. It has five figures, all dressed in winter garb. It includes a photographer trying to get four soldiers into various heroic poses. It looks like the aftermath of a battle and the expressions on the soldiers is one of 'let's hurry up and get this done as I'm hungry and cold'. You are provided with alternate bits for the photographer.

Those who have built these kits have commented on how nicely molded they are and they are generally free from sink areas or other molding glitches. The figures in this set could easily be used in other settings if one wished. The kit has no formal instructions, but the back of the box provides at least two images of the painted figures and where the parts go. Painting instructions give Vallejo, Tamiya, Lifecolour, Humbrol and Agama paint references.


In all, a very nice set that I'm sure those of you who build armor and like dioramas will find quite useful.
