Master Box Ltd (MB) 1/35 ‘Final Stand’

One of a series of kits dedicated to the Indian Wars, produced by quality figure manufacturer Master Box, are these figures posed under the title ‘Final Stand’. These lovely figures are sculpted by A Gagarin and the excellent box art is by I Varavin.

The subjects are a US Cavalry Sergeant fighting for his life, firing his rifle behind his dying horse while another man, possibly a scout, provides additional covering fire. Going by the title, there days’ appear to be numbered! There are no instructions but there are five annotated images of the completed figures (one unpainted and one painted) accompanied by a shot of the sprue with part numbers added (these do not appear on the sprue). A small, but informative colour chart gives you Vallejo or Lifecolor options and the same images on the rear are also annotated with the appropriate colour code. All of the parts are up to MBs usual high standard and are presented in very high action poses which would complement any diorama on this huge subject.   

Thanks very much to Mary at Master Box for this sample and to Creative Models for passing it on to us. Creative Models is the UK distributor for this kit.
