It's been a while, but here's an interesting update straight off the presses - courtesy of Masterbox
The photos are self-explanatory. A typical scene from the last days of WWII with combat troops dealing with the millions of displaced people on the highways of Europe.

As this is an IN-PROGRESS set, there's nothing to say it won't undergo changes and improvements before it reaches the market. Photos like these are always useful - firstly to show the process of development of any figure set and secondly, to allow the modeler to have an input on suggestions or improvements that the designers could make on the production product.

As always, my thanks to Masterbox Ltd. for allowing Kitmaker to get the first look at what could be an extremely versatile set!

I am really enjoying all the new civilians that MB is doing. So far I have bought them all and have molded a few of my own from them ,where I can mix parts and pieces to make diferent figures from the origional. Great job Masterbox...........Al

Great set I particularly like the sculpting of the female figure. I share the misgivings abouit the helmet covers which weren't generally seen in the ETO and also the shape of the boots which have some of the features of leggings Heres a pic of an original and a repro boot from at the front.com

Another nice set from MB. Being a WIP they will probably change a few things ,just like they did to their Maquis set.I forget what they changed but the WIP photos were different from the released set.(wounded German ?) I for one ,thank them for letting us have a peek at new figures and the chance to critic them before they go into production.. I wish other companys were willing to do the same.

I'm realy looking forward to this set, very imaginative and already seems to be well done, despite the issues already pointed out. Hey, it's more girls (and they look good !) AND the NUN for the first time in styrene ! Jim, the "issue" pointed out by modellers and rectified by MB in their maquis set was that in original sculpt the maquis were taking care of the wounds of german captive, while , as pointed out, they would rathe "take care" of the soldier himself

I love the sets of MB, they are really far far away from the "three soldiers walking" stereotype. The issues what were told previously are true, but I hope that MB will listen to the free of charge quality supervisors as they did previously. I like the woman especially, finally somebody managed to form one which legs and hips doesn't look like it was carved from a tree trunk with an axe.

Great set if they put the issues already mentioned right, and of course if they sell the figures as stand alone cos ive already got the cart.Only got one critisim the amount of time taken from release to sale time but this seems specific to GB, or I may just be impatient

The choice of subject is great, but some details could be improved. The two upper pockets on the airborne jacket should be slanted inwards. See: http://rallypointmilitaria.com/tag/rigger
