MasterBox 1/35 'Crossroad'

KIT #: MB 3572
PRICE: $47.00 MSRP
DECALS: Many options for the motorcycle
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Includes photoetch wire wheels.

This particular set includes five superb figures as well as a motorcycle. I've previewed the bike before so will simply refer you to this link to refresh your memory in this regard. One thing that is different from the previous motorcycle preview is that this boxing comes with a photo etch fret. This fret is mainly concerned with the wire wheels. There are four of them and these will replace the plastic inserts that comes on the sprue. Of course, if you wish, you can use the plastic ones. Some are not comfortable working with p.e. but it is there for those who are. I should also mention that that this kit comes complete with the same decals as in the earlier one.

The other sprue has five figures on it. Two are for the motorcycle and side car. The other three are crouched on the ground. These consist of two Soviet soldiers in camouflage holding down a German prisoner and looking as if they are about the ambush the motorcycle troops. The back of the box contains a parts layout for the figures as well as camouflage variations for the uniforms. There is no specific color information provided. The images of the assembled and painted figures are your guide to assembling the figures. Two views of each figure are provided to assist in parts placement.

Overall, it is a very nice set with well molded figures and a detailed motorcycle in the mix.
