A dog! ...and MasterBox’ latest kits with lots of pics

Just when you think everything has gone quiet at MasterBox HQ they send us details of their latest kits on the way for next month – we have some great images for you wrap your eyes around in our preview…

Well have a look! These are just the thing for a diorama on the steppes of Russia with this motley crew of characters lost in the middle of nowhere – you could have some partisans taking down the road signs if you want to!

The kit consists of model of the recently released MB 35101 "Polizei-Kuebelsitzwagen ab 1937, German military car, WWII era" and especially developed for this car kit MB 35106 are the 6 figures, including dog that gives a special charm to the kit! Love the dog!!

 Despite figures are related quite firmly to exactly this type of the car, the story of the kit is quite unordinary and it could both become a good basis for a complicated diorama and create a great mini-diorama.

This set of six of the most famous generals of WWII is moulded on one sprue and looks to be popular – along with softskins this is a well-covered subject right now – the famous leaders are in vogue!!
 Patton, Zhukov, Montgomery, de Gaulle, Mannstien, Hajime Sugijama. We would like to emphasize especially that the kit does not provide for some interaction between the figures that is from our point of view the advantage of this kit, as it allows either to include any of these figures in corresponding dioramas, or to create a separate memorial figure of the famous historical personality.
You can really see the different characteristics of each of these men – and it reminds me of the famous pilots release in 1/32 – We are just missing Patton’s Dog! 
MB 3582 “Auto-Repair Crew”
This kit consists of 1 sprue which makes up 5 figures of German vehicle mechanics of World War II

This kit is a new interpretation of old kit MB 3560 “German Motorcycle Repair Crew” so if you missed out the first time this can be used on a few different vehicles (yay).
 Earlier this kit was released together with motorcycle, and correspondingly it was very expensive. As these figures were projected initially as universal and they are suited for any type of ground technique well and also in connection with that lately a lot of soft skin vehicles in 1/35 scale MasterBox have released these figures separately in a new box that make them available at a great price and suitable for dioramas with any type of automobile or armour technique.

These kits are available from MasterBox’s distributors after July, 9 Check their website for more..
