MasterBox 1/35 Maquis - French Resistance
KIT #: MB3551
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Five figures in the set


Master Box has this fine figure set for four members of the French Resistance and one German Army officer. The Maquis are in various poses; one searching a German, one standing guard with his gun and two others. One of those is a woman carrying a gun and a briefcase while the other is rather tall and is looking in at a map. There is a German soldier with hands behind his head as he is being searched by one of the resistance fighters. This is all on one sprue of tan plastic.

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 civilians, 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.


Another interesting figure kit that is a bit outside the norm and should be well received by modelers looking for something just a tad different.
