Master Box 1/35 US Marines in Jungle
By Don Barry
Kit # MB 3589
A nicely posed, 4 figure set of U.S. Marines advancing cautiously, with 3 of the four looking up and in different directions, as though probing cautiously forward in the jungle of some South Pacific island. One carries a backpack radio and is armed with an M-1 carbine; two with M-1
Garands with bayonets attached, and one with a 1903 Springfield rifle fitted with a telescopic sight. Ammunition bandoleers are slung around two figures, being of 2 piece construction to ensure a good fit. They are figure specific, so pay attention. Full personal gear is provided, including grenades, a machete, K-Bar fighting knife, canteens, rucksacks, etc. The radio is well detailed, consisting of five parts including handset. The only oddity is that the ’03
This set, well built and painted, and placed in a “jungley” setting, is an instant vignette, just waiting for a builder. This reviewer gives two thumbs way up, well recommended. Very few figure sets of South Pacific Marines exist in injection molded form. This set is a welcome addition.
My sincere thanks to Stevens International for my review sample.
