Master Box “Operation Milk Man”: German Infantry, WW-II era in 1/35th Scale
This is another excellent set based on four German Infantry soldiers milking a cow during a break in the action.
Contains 2 sprues with 79 pieces that have no flash. There are actually more pieces as there are 8 part #1's on the animal sprue.
It has four German Infantry figures, two cows and a goat. (one of the cows and the goat are bonus figures). The farm animals will be released separately in the near future. I would place them in Operation Barbarossa (Summer) since most of them have their sleeves rolled up. It would appear that three of them are “farm boys” while the fourth is a “city boy” (that would be the one directly behind the cow). Boys raised on a farm would know better than to crouch behind a cow as “not everything that comes from a cow is cream”.
The weapons, uniforms and equipment look accurate.
It appears that Master Box has once again released “a diorama in a box” that also has many possibilities for an endless list of future diorama's.
The uniforms and equipment are covered in numerous books, so information on these should not be too hard to find.
My “Build Review” should follow in a few months Overall this should build into an outstanding replica and is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys figures. I would like to thank Alexander Surzhenko of Master Box Models for the review kit.
