Frau Müller and a chocolate bar, voyeuristic soldiers and some precision bicycles are all on MasterBox’s mind this month…

What do the meeting of paratroopers and semi clad ladies – along with Mrs Müller a snickers bar and the town bike have in common? They are all new releases from MasterBox this month – that’s what!

MasterBox’s new kits of July 2014:
 
"US and German paratroopers, the South of Europe, 1944"
1/35th scale
35157

It is quite an original kit, in a send up type of way, the action of the kit is taking place in the South of Europe, in 1944. Where two girls that are bathing topless in the centre of the story, and a special appeal is given to the kit by that US paratroopers are moving carefully to girls’ side from one side and German paratroopers – from other side. Both sides have already caught sight of girls, but they still do not see each other and it is not known how the situation will resolve itself...

The kit consists of 6 figures, two of them are girls, two - US paratroopers and two - German paratroopers. The figures are animated very well, in very live poses and they interact with each other well. We will emphasize one more peculiarity of the kit especially – each pair of the figures from the kit can be used both as a single composition and separately for various independent dioramas.
And the whole scene - add what you like to this diorama..(lots of puns i could think of in this caption)

"Here is Snickers, help yourself, please!"
1/35th scale
Kit no:35159

 The kit consists of 8 figures and it represents a genre scene that is taking place somewhere in the East: two US military men, members of the crew of the armoured vehicle, are trying to establish kind relations with local children. The figures are animated very well and interact with each other very well. 
The peculiarity of the kit is that the figures of the kit can become both an addition for creating a large diorama with the use of the models of modern ground combat equipment of various manufacturers and it can be the basis for creating an independent miniature without the use of the models of equipment.
"German Military Bicycle, WWII Era"
1/35th scale
Kit no:35165

The kit contains a set of parts for the assembly of the model of German Military Bicycle of WWII Era. The design of the model is projected with maximal simplicity that secures comfortable and precise assembly, but at the same time a very high degree of correspondence to the original is kept, and the presence of the plate with photoetched parts allows making the model of museum class. 
 The PE parts..
The peculiarity of the kit is that several variants can be assembled from suggested parts and these variants differ from each other very evidently, they are Military Bicycle in standard implementation, Bicycle adapted for transportation of machine gun, Bicycle adapted for transportation of mines and Bicycle adapted for transportation of panzerfaust.

"Frau Müller. Woman & Women's Bicycle, Europe, WWII Era"
1/35th scale.
Kit no: 35166
This kit is both a good addition to dioramas with most various stories and it can be the basis for creating an independent miniature. A set of parts allows assembling the model of Women’s Bicycle of WWII Era that is walked by an elderly woman of that period. 
The model of the Bicycle is projected with maximal simplicity that secures comfortable and precise assembly, but at the same time a very high degree of correspondence to the original is kept, and the presence of the plate with photoetched parts allows making the model of museum class, and the figure of the woman looks very naturally and harmoniously.
 
 
 
 Again the photo etched parts when added to the bike really bring the kit up to a top standard.
These four new kits and all of their other great stuff can be seen on the Masterbox Website along with their Distributors Worldwide.
