...more 1/35 WW2 figure sets from MB Models

The news for March 2021 sees MB Models (MasterBox) doing 2 more WW2 themed 1/35 figure sets. I am still a great fan of these, as these, like so many of their figure sets, tell a story in themselves, so useful to fit into a diorama.

1) 35218 “German military men, 1944-1945. Das Maschinengewehr ist dort!” - this kit continues the WWII subject and represents a group of four German elite infantrymen discussing the upcoming battle with the tank commander.

We would like to emphasize that the figure of the tank officer is made in such a way that it fits easily for any model of a German tank or self-propelled vehicle of that period (T-VI Tiger, T-V Panther, T-IV etc.), as well as for trophy types of tanks, for example, T-34.
The kit includes a sprue with the parts for assembling 5 figures of German military men from the WWII - three private soldiers and an officer of the elite infantry, and one officer-tanker.
The figures are made at a high artistic level, essentially being sculptural miniatures, they are animated very well and interact with each other greatly and allow the modeller to implement the most diverse stories for dioramas.
In addition, the use of other kits of Master Box, for example, kit 35162 "Let's stop them here!" German Military Men, 1945", allows you to create larger dioramas.
The kit is performed in 1/35 scale.

2) 35219 “US Paratroopers, 1944” - this kit is a remake of the old and successful 3511 "US Paratroopers, 1944" kit.

The new version has two main differences:
1. A new, much more expressive picture on the front side of the box that enhances sharply the emotional perception of the kit and increases its attractiveness to buyers.
2. An additional sprue with ammunition produced by MiniArt. This sprue contains helmets and ammunition made at a higher quality level that takes the kit to a new level of quality and makes it more attractive to the modeller.
The kit includes a sprue with the parts for assembling figures of 3 US paratroopers from Normandy landings period that were in a difficult situation and were forced to shoot back to save their wounded comrade.
The figures are made at a high artistic level and united by a single plot, they are animated very well and interact with each other greatly and allow the modeller to create not only a vignette by using the figures from the kit, but also to create larger dioramas by using the figures from other kits. For example, the use of 35145 “German Paratroopers. WW II era” kit or 3584 “German Infantry. Western Europe. 1944-1945” kit will allow to create a dramatic prosecution scene, and the use of 3574 “Take one more grenade! Screaming Eagles, 101st Airborne (Air Assault) Division, Europe, 1944-1945” will allow you to create a scene of urban battle.
The kit is performed in 1/35 scale.
