Modern UK Infantrymen – Present day. 1/35th Scale, Kit # MB35180This is the first set of British modern Infantrymen based on UK Army forces present day.
Contains 1 sprue with 64 pieces that have no flash.
It has five UK (British) Army soldiers 2 standing and 3 vehicle based (vehicle not included). One is the Heavy Weapons soldier carrying the L7A2 General Purpose Machine gun. The other standing soldier can have either the L85A2 standard issue assault rifle with SUSAT or ACOG scope or the L85A2 with SUSAT or ACOG scope and L123A1 underslung grenade launcher (both are provided in the set). Box art shows the other three figures fitting nicely into a modern version of the Military Land Rover. All five are in relaxed positions and have side arms in holsters, body armor and helmets with covers. The two standing members are in full kit.
The weapons, uniforms and equipment look accurate.
This is very sweet set of Modern British Soldiers that Master Box has come up with.
The uniforms and equipment are covered in numerous books, so information on these should not be too hard to find.
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.
