...a July release from MB Models

New from MB Models of their July release, and it is the first one of their series of Ukrainian soldiers of the still current war with Russia. An interesting looking set of figures, great to see they have been able to get the first one into production.

35223 “Russian-Ukrainian War series. Defence of Kyiv, March 2022. Trophy. Kit No.1” – the kit is performed in 1/35 scale.

The first kit of the series of the Russian-Ukrainian War is released! Modellers wait for this kit very much, we received a lot of requests to release it ASAP that we fulfilled!

This series of kits is dedicated to all countries and to all people of Planet Earth who supported Ukraine in protection from the barbarian invasion. Glory to Ukraine!

Kit 35223 opens the series of kits dedicated to Russian-Ukrainian war. This war shocked the whole world not only with examples of inhuman crimes, robberies, executions of civilians and mass rape of women and children done by the Russian army in the occupied territories, not only with the unprecedented heroism of Ukrainians who managed to stop and reverse the forces of the aggressor that are many times greater than the forces of the Ukrainian resistance, but also with showing the defenselessness of the whole world in the face of a cynical and arrogant dictator, showed the inability of international structures, whose mission is to stop such attempts, to take really effective actions, the inability of these structures to protect the world from the consequences of such a war, such as global hunger, global energy crisis and global crisis even of the world's leading economies.

The kit contains a frame with parts for assembling four soldiers of the Ukrainian army. These fighters have just finished clearing the territory left by the enemy and are happy to take pictures at the sample of Russian armored vehicle they captured. We would like to note that the kit does not include a vehicle model and the modeller can choose which technique to use when making a diorama. It can be a tank, an armored personnel carrier, an infantry fighting vehicle, Pantsir-S1, a truck, or even a destroyed fortification.

The detailing of the kit is rich and allows you to place equipment on the figures in a variety of configurations at the choice of the modeller.

The figures are made at a high artistic level and are rather miniature sculptures. The figures are also animated perfectly and interact with each other well, making up a single plot, a whole story.

If desired, the modeller can make both a vignette using this kit, and a larger diorama using kits 35226 and 35227 of the same series.

Thanks to MB Models for the news.
