First Look

German Paratroopers WWII Kit

Masterbox has released another figure set which provides a foundation for a diorama or vignette right out of the box. The kit is molded in light gray styrene and presented on one parts tree. The kit consists of four German paratroopers, one in the prone firing position, one on a knee at the ready, and two advancing on foot. As depicted in the box art, this set would make a great urban combat scene as these troops move from street to street looking for enemy activity.

Paint colors are provided in both Vallejo and Lifecolor.

Whether you're a Fallschirmjäger modeler or looking for good material for your next diorama or vignette project, this set will make a great addition.

My sincere thanks to Stevens International for this review sample!
