First Look

Master Box is back with another nice vignette in a box. This set consists of five figures wearing early war infantry uniforms and posed to depict a machine gun team advancing on the battlefield. One figure is standing upright observing the way forward through his binoculars while one sniper and one rifleman are ready to respond to any enemy fire. Two other figures are posed running in a crouched position with their machine gun and cans of ammunition.

German Infantry, WWII era, Early period Kit

Presented on two parts trees molded in gray styrene, the set includes the five figures plus all of their equipment. The sculpting of the masters is really well done and these figures only need assembly and paint to bring them to life. This is another nice release from Master Box and will make for a nice subject for a diorama or vignette.

My sincere thanks to DML for this review sample!
