Master Box “Eastern Region Peasants, WW II Era" in 1/35th Scale
This is a very nice set that gives you 5 civilian figures of Peasants in clothing that represents the Eastern area's of Europe.
Contains 1 sprue with 43 pieces that have no flash. One figure can be actually be built in different variants, while three others can be made to look different by wearing various hats that are provided.
It has five figures: Three children, 1 girl and two boys all of which are bare foot. (One of the boys can be built with a molded on soviet army style army hat or he can wear a civilian style hat that can also be worn by the Grand Father figure). (the other boy can have a bare head or wear an old style Red Army Revolution style hat provided). Both female figures have their heads covered. It also comes with a Grand Mother and a Grand Father figure. The Grand Mother figure can be build pouring liquid from a jar, or with her hands by her side (a different set of arms are provided), she has an apron on. The Grand Father figure is sitting on a piece of wood that is also provided.
The headgear looks pretty accurate for civilians in this area of Eastern Europe during World War II.
It appears that Master Box has some great looking civilians to fill the very large gap in this area of models. It also gives you the chance to make endless diorama's in Eastern Europe.
I highly recommend both these kits for anyone who enjoys figures and wants to add civilians to their dioramas. I would like to thank Alexander Surzhenko of Master Box Models for the review kit.
