First Look

German Elite Infantry

This set of figures from Master Box consists of 63 parts molded in grey styrene that will allow you to make 5 full figures. Also included is a weapons parts tree that has dozens of rifles and personal equipment on it. All of the parts are molded very well and there is little flash to deal with. Seam lines are minimal.

All of the figures are sculpted very well and the detail on the uniforms is great. The faces and hands are very well done and the expressions are perfect for this diorama in a box!

There are some really nice, subtle, features such as a helmet full of eggs. One thing that I discovered is that the one figure is carrying a head of cabbage, not the watermelon that is shown on the box art.

This is a very well done set of figure by Master Box and a great change of pace from all of the pointing German figures!

My sincere thanks to DML for this review sample!
