Master Box “Europe 1945” in 1/35th ScaleThis is one of their earlier kits, but the figures are great and it gives you two civilian figures of woman in period clothing and one enlisted US Paratrooper and one US Officer (Pilot) figure enjoying some Rest and Relaxation (R & R) with some local woman. These can be pretty much any city in Europe that has been liberated.
Contains 1 sprue with 31 pieces that have no flash and a cool set of decals with rank, years in service and unit markings (They are a little unclear as to which decals goes where on the uniforms, but any good book that shows both Paratroopers and Aircrew/Pilots will be great for reference).
It has four figures: Two woman (both are wearing short sleeved dresses or blouses and skirts. One has a hand bag and hat, while the other does not. They both appear to be happy to accompany the soldier/airman that they are with. The Enlisted Paratrooper has a bottle of wine or champagne. They can be built and displayed in pairs or as a group.
As I said, this is any early release and pretty much set the standard of the other great kits that Master Box has come out with. Many figure builders like non-combat or relaxed poses and this one really brings you to a quiet little spot for them to enjoy a little down time. These are some great looking Military figures with civilians woman to fill the very large gap in this area of modeling. It also gives you endless diorama idea's using woman.
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.
