In the second of today's WIPs, this time a VERY significant (future) Release from Masterbox Ltd.
A couple of weeks ago, we ran an Image Report on another future-release from Masterbox - the D.A.K. AFV Crew. Now, the other 'side' - a Commonwealth AFV Crew Set.

There are two components of this set which really call attention - the first being the camel and local tribesman. The second, and this is something which is NEVER reflected, the inclusion of an Infantryman from one of the Indian Divisions.

The images we have been sent, show 6 figures (plus the camel) - whether ALL appear in the finished set or whether they might be split into two sets remains to be seen. However, what is incredibly positive is again, a MAJOR manufacturer is thinking Allied!

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

I love the Arab bedouin figure. His pose and the way he's sitting on the camel is pretty accurate and natural looking. Cheers Hisham

It's a really gerat news! I love the marketing policy of MB, seems to be the company which really thinks together with the modellers.

Brilliant, many great and useable poses for Brit Armour. The Early Brit Crewmans Helmet is a real bonus and whilst I didn't think they were used in the NA/Med I found a pic of one with the Scots Greys in Italy! I'd rather a tanker in a cricket pullover perhaps with a Peaked cap than Monty but regardles I love these guys. Their Monty is pretty true to the well known photo as was Tamiyas from the 70's Al

What an awesome set. We hope to see more Masterbox stuff down this way as it is very scare. I have one set and if the rest of them are as good I will be a very happy man. Excellent

Fantastic figure choices, especially the Bedouin and camel. I finished "Lansdowne Arms" a few weeks ago and will definitely combine it with these figures. The camel and rider will also look awesome next to the new Rolls Royce armored car. I vote for replacing Monty with another camel and rider. Masterbox can release Monty later in a "Great Generals" set. Or maybe a "Generals Drinking Tea" set. Now I'm thirsty. -Doug

I found this comment partictularly interesting - probably because you're one of the few people on the Network who can comment accurately on this kind of subject. So, I passed your comment on to Masterbox, this was their response: Once again, nice to have a manufacturer take note of comments!

This looks like a great set. Not being too informed in regards to British tanker uniforms, does their attire limit to them to only desert theatres? Would it suit for Italy as well? As someone else stated I think we can brace ourselves for a slew of diorama's featuring camels once this set is released.
