Masterbox's new kits of November-December 2017

"Indian Wars Series. Remote shot"
1/35 scale.
#35128
The kit continues the series of the figures in 1/35 scale dedicated to the period of the history of the USA of the XIXth century and relates to the time of so-called “Indian Wars”. The kit includes parts for the assembly of two figures of foot Indian Warriors that are either hunting, or trying to shoot at an unwary lonely traveler from remote distance. Both Indians are armed with rifles. Despite the poses of the figures are statical the figures interact with each other greatly and are filled with inner energy, create absolute feeling of tense pause before dramatic event.
The kit allows creating both an independent diorama and also more large-scale diorama with the use of the figures from the series of kits of quite full value already: 35191, 35188 or 35138. - they also allow the creation of a larger scale diorama with the use of 35192 kit 
Masterbox would like to repeat that despite static nature of the story the kit is filled with emotion, the figures are united by the single story and they are animated very well and interact with each other easily.
We would like to emphasize also that both figures can be used one by one, at the same time each figure has so bright expression that it allows seeing the whole story even in the single figure.


"Indian Wars Series. Raid"
1/35 scale.
35138
The kit continues the series of the figures in 1/35 scale dedicated to the period of history of the USA of the XIXth century and relates to the time of so-called “Indian Wars”. The kit includes parts for the assembly of two figures of foot Indian Warriors that went on the warpath. 
The kit allows creating both an independent diorama and also more large-scale diorama with the use of the figures from the series of kits of quite full value already: 35191, 35188 or 35128.35128 - they also allow the creation of a larger scale diorama with the use of 35192 kit 
The kit is filled with the bright emotion, the figures are united by the single story, they are animated very well and interact with each other greatly.
Together or used with several other kits  - these figures can make quite a lovely scene in the right hands...


"Bundeswehr. German Military Men, Present Day"
1/35 scale.
#35195
This kit captures fighters the period of Modern Warfare and consists of five figures - three members of the armoured vehicle crew and two Infantrymen. The figures make up the single story showing a combat scene that could happen in any corner of Afghanistan or Iraq nowadays.
Although the scene portrayed here is rather calm, the whole scene looks very organic, the figures are animated very well and interact with each other well. This kit can both enliven the diorama with the use of models of techniques greatly and serve as the basis for creating mini-diorama.
Masterbox would like to emphasize that the figures in the given kit can be used not only in the look offered here, but also separately, in any combination, at the modeller’s choice.


Ancient Greek Myths Series "Satyr” 
1/24th scale
#24024
This new kit from Masterbox is the answer to the need of the figures in Fantasy style, it is the part of the series of kits in 1/24th scale for Master Box. This kit continues new series of kits based on Ancient Greek Myths that relates rather to Fantasy that is a strict historical illustration. This example of a figure of Satyr is sculpted in an unusual fashion and in spite of widespread stereotype that Satyr was the utmost amorous character spending time in amorous frolics with beautiful nymphs, the character created here is not traditional and known publicly as merry goat-footed libertine, but fierce and powerful warrior that is clearly of fantasy style that both strict devotees of mythology of ancient times and fans of fantasy genre will like.
The figure is sculpted to a high artistic level, its whole pose is filled with life and motion and this is one of those cases that a single figure can show the whole story.
The choice of 1/24th scale for this series of the kits is brought on by the need for more in this, the most preferable scale for the figures of fantasy scenes that allow a higher level of painting detail that is highly appreciated by the modellers. 

Masterbox wanted to emphasize that the figure will allow the modeller a mini-diorama or vignette, or a larger-scale scene with the use of other figures of Master Box company of the same series, for example, of the figure of Centaur (24023 kit).

All of these four kits and everything else from Masterbox's releases will be with us in November of 2017. Check out the Masterbox Website for more info on their models.
