Once again, Masterbox Ltd. give us a glimpse into a completely new set in its initial stages.
Masterbox Ltd, can arguably be considered the innovators of the 'Vignette-in-a-Box' which is not unknown amongst the Resin manufactures, but previously untried anoungst those who produce in styrene.

Normally, a set of figures have contained those of the same nationality, Masterbox have changed this idea somewhat.

The new set (which is still in-progress) is titled: "Who is that?". The situation is that two groups of scouting infantry (Soviet Naval Infantry and German scouts) are about to meet each other. Provisionally, the area of the encounter is Stalingrad although with the uniform details any situation in 1942-43 could be represented.

As I mentioned earlier, this set is by way of an experiment to gauge reaction to the concept.

Our thanks (as always!) to Alexander of Masterbox Ltd. for sharing these photos with Kitmaker Network

Wow, that's a great concept and it's not only a scene in a box, it's literally a diorama with tension and emotion in a box. Definitely buying one to do as the pre-made diroama and probably another since those are nice poses for other dioramas. I wish Masterbox would do an integrated set for the 1946 paper panzers that are all over the place, infantry with updated weaponry like dragon's old set talking/interacting with a panzer crew hanging out of the hatches of their Panther F or E25. Great set, great idea. I love these guys. Matt

The Russians look more promising that the Germans in the sense that other manufacturers already have several sets out with similar poses. I like the use of the German LMG by the Soviet squad leader - makes a nice change from the opposite, namely Germans using Soviet gear/weapons. Kudos though to MB for putting them all in the same box.

I am in total agreement with this concept - a good idea. You can feel, nay almost taste the tension. More please!

Absolutely love the concept. Although I don't build dios or vignettes, this one I will definitely get as it is sure to provide a nice change of pace and, with it, some much needed fun. Great job Matser Box! Rob
