Masterbox Ltd. have just sent us images of yet another different approach by the company. Once again, it's in-progress so no dates can be provided at this time.
The latest Work-in-Progress is:

3556 - September,1 1939

Once again the company is thinking along the lines of a 'Vignette-in-a-box'. The subject this time is German Infantry taking a Polish Cavalryman prisoner after the famous cavalry charge by Polish troops against German forces advancing.

More,as they say, to come...

Our thanks to Masterbox for the Update!

Thank you, Mr. Alexander, for participating in this forum and for your willingness to listen to modelers. Just a couple of suggestions / wishes.. # More modern figures from different nationalities # Definitely more insurgent figure sets.. and modern "generic" civilian figures with regular clothes - pants, shirts, T-shirts and shoes - which could be used in a variety of different conflicts. # Would it be feasible / reasonable to ask for an accessory set (like some resin manufacturers do) which contains heads, hands, boots, weapons and personal gear which could be used to convert other figures? Keep up the great work you're doing Hisham

YES an accessory set,I have the British troops ,Caen, to start on but so far I have resisted temptation to cannibalize some things in the box

I think this looks like a very interesting set and will certainly be picking it up. I think the Pole's look of defiance really helps sell it. Perhaps as a follow up a set with 1-2 Polish cavalary in action would be great, while they did not stupidly charge tanks they did run down german infantry while armed with modern firearms and that would be a lovely scene to model. Thanks, Matt

There is no doubt that MasterBox continues to produce some of the most interesting figure kits. I just picked up three 'CounterAttack' kits for the great detailing and the M1939 helmets. I would have preferred to see as many as were depicted on the boxart but that is a reason I will purchase many more. I certainly look forward to this Polish incident. I would love to see more Polish 1939 infantry figures. Keep' em coming!!!

I was wondering if there are any chances to see this set in the near future? Of course with all the improvements mentioned above.

Seconded! Definitly! More Civilians would be great in mine eyes since my focus is NATO/Cold War. For a proper "Germany, late 1980s" diorama one needs either protesters or children/teens climbing on the tank So far Civilians are mostly restricted to some Preiser sets that can be "dual used" but those have limits since they fit 1960s at nest. Modern versions of your Kit 3567 or some variants of your Mechanics (any nation) for the Cold War would be very welcome.

Pawel, are you a disgruntled ex-employee of MasterBox? I think you're missing the forest by concentrating on the trees, no matter how right about 'a few little details' you might be, and that forest is that this is a superb subject and the gesture of the figures, not to mention the horse, is outstanding. I have to admit I found the hat a bit odd, however if you're willing to tool an update for this set I'll be happy to purchase it when the product is released. Otherwise, I guess I'll simply have to suffer.

Dear Piotr, Of course, the plot of our kit can cause debates and can be seen fron different sides. As you saw, the Polish Uhlan who is wounded very much tries to stand up and despite the wounds he tries to meet the enemy standing on his legs. So we tried to create a symbol of Poland that was defeated but nevertheless it went on the fight and did not give up after having come through a lot of trials. Poland managed to create European independent state. Best Regards, Alexander Surzhenko, Director Master Box Ltd. [/quote] I propose to start maiking your's national heroes,maybe SS Galizien or maybe fall on Malmedy?[/quote] Actually, Verlinden beat MB to the punch on this one years ago with their Schwimmwagen riders. They are Galicia Division. Some Croatian Ustache or Black Legion figures would be appreciated, however. Chetniks too.

Don't worry about the resin, just keep up the great work in plastic, yours is some of the best out there.
