Master Box Ltd 1/35 German Tank Crew

KIT: Out of the Frying Pan, into the Fire
KIT #: MB3536
DECALS: none
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Five Figures


Master Box has this fine figure set for five German tank crew members. These guys are not exactly in the best situation, having had their tank knocked out and are now making a hasty retreat to keep from being captured by the Soviets. Two of the figures are in the process of carrying off wounded comrades, while the other is getting ready to chuck a 'potato masher' at the on-coming Russians.

There is no instruction sheet, but on the back of the box a view of each figure showing where the parts fit and giving color information. As they are tank men, they don't have the usual plethora of packs, canteens and other accoutrements to have attached. A parts diagram is also provided so you can identify each bit. Color information is provided with Vallejo, Tamiya, Lifecolour, Humbrol and Agama references, so you should be able to find something that will work.


Figures like these appear to be pretty straight-forward in terms of construction and painting. Their different poses will surely add to any armor diorama.
