The set had very minimal flash, and no ejection pin marks. The few mold lines were easily removed with a sharp blade. There are no decals, and no painting instructions. You will need to copy what you see in the illustration. There are not even any part numbers on the sprue, just a picture on the back of the box with the numbers listed next to the part.

The figures went together without a lot of shaping and filling. The weapons fit the hands and are nicely made.

As noted, there are no painting instructions and the photo on the front is useful as it gives you a sense of what the artist conception is. The photos on the back give you general idea of what the colors are, but my advice is to review your figure references for proper color.

Conclusion – Master Box is becoming the leader in vignettes in a box. The kit is very well done and appears better than my figure painting makes it look.

I used Histoire and Collections USMC Uniforms and Equipment 1941 – 45 by Bruno Alverti and Lauren Pradier as my primary reference for the equipment colors.

Thanks to Master Box for the review sample and IPMS/USA for the review space.
