The Master Box U.S. Marines in jungle kit consists of 84 well molded parts in tan plastic. The set contains 4 early World War II Marine Corp full figures. Each figure has 6 or 7 main parts. The detail on the clothing is well done and will look great under paint. The faces are all very well done and can be used as is.
The included equipment is also molded very well and has some nice details. The ammo bandoliers are particularly well done as are the backpacks and pouches. Weapons include M-1 Garand's, an M-1 Carbine and a 1903 Springfield with scope. Also included are hand grenades and bayonets.
Fit of the main components is very good. Overall, this is a great and much needed set of figures.
My sincere thanks to DML for this review sample!
