...4 new figure sets due soon

News from Master Box of 4 new figure sets due out soon.  Three are in 1/35, and one in 1/24.

1) 35203 “Outlaw. Gunslinger series. Kit No. 1. Marshal Tom Tucker, Molly and Rebecca Hanson” - Once early in the morning Molly, who was walking alone as usual discovered a wounded officer of the law near the ranch and called Rebecca, her mother for help. Young ladies will help the wounded. But what brought him to these lands? Whom is he persecuting and who has wounded him? And who are the two shown in kits 35204 and 35205 included in this series? What led them to these lands? And how are they all interconnected?

The kit includes the figures of the wounded Marshal (Tom Tucker), a horse, a young woman (Rebecca Hanson) and a little girl (Molly Hanson). We would emphasize that the figure of the horse has interchangeable elements that allow giving different poses to the horse and, accordingly, different emotions. The figures are very good and, going far beyond usual plastic figures, they represent very elegant and highly artistic miniature sculptures that will satisfy even the most demanding art connoisseur. 
As expected from a full work of art, these mini-sculptures represent an excellently balanced composition filled with powerful expression and interact perfectly with each other, as well as with the figures from kits 35204 and 35205. And, of course, as always, the modeller can create at own discretion a diorama both by using all the figures from this whole series and by using a separate kit of 35203, and can even create a very expressive vignette by using any figure from the kit at own discretion.
 
The kit is performed in 1/35 scale.

2) 35204 "Outlaw. Gunslinger series. Kit No. 2. Gentleman Jim Jameson - Hired Gun" – the figure of Gentleman Jim Jameson - Hired Gun, a hired killer is incredibly expressive. Someone will see in it a single-minded killer looking for a trace, someone - an extremely dangerous adventurer looking intently into the eyes of the victim, and someone - a dangerous resident of the Wild West trying to look friendly. The figure is perfect for creating an extremely expressive vignette, as well as for a large and very interesting diorama in the plot by using either all or selectively figures from kits 35203, 35204 and 35205.
We would note especially that the sculpture of the rider is so good that it is absolutely not perceived as an ordinary plastic figure, but is a real work of art. 
The kit includes the figures of a rider and a horse with full equipment matching exactly the equipment of that time. We would emphasize that the figure of the horse has interchangeable elements that allow giving different poses to the horse and, accordingly, different emotions.
 
The kit is performed in 1/35 scale.

3) 35205 "Outlaw. Gunslinger series. Kit No. 3. Pedro Melgoza - Bounty Hunter" –in those harsh and mercilessly cruel times the line between the outlaw and the officer of the law was incredibly thin. The history of the Wild West knows about the cases when yesterday’s outlaw became an uncompromising defender of the Law, and vice versa. Besides, the methods of dealing with the violators of the law were very simple and cruel, and the court and reprisals were quick and merciless. One of the methods of fighting the crime was the phenomenon of Bounty Hunters, when the Law declared an award for the capture of the outlaw. Many desperate thugs considered hunting for a criminal as an opportunity to earn money and they went in a dangerous pursuit. One of such Bounty Hunters is shown in our kit.Despite the static pose the figure is very expressive and fits perfectly both for creating an independent vignette “from a box” and for creating a large and very interesting in the plot diorama by using either all or selectively figures from kits 35203, 35204 and 35205.

We would note especially sculpture dignities of this figure that brings the whole composition to the level of a highly artistic miniature.

The kit includes the figures of a rider and a horse with full equipment matching exactly the equipment of that time. We would emphasize that the figure of the horse has interchangeable elements that allow giving different poses to the horse and, accordingly, different emotions.

The kit is performed in 1/35 scale.

4) 24067 ”Dangerous Curves Series. Françoise” - Master Box company continues to release the Dangerous Curves Series of 1/24 scale and presents Françoise, a new kit of these series.

The kit contains parts for the assembly of the figure of an elegant and stylishly dressed girl that fits greatly both for animating and giving special charm to any car model in this scale and for creating an independent miniature. Besides, you can create the whole scene by using figure of Françoise together with the figures from other Master Box kits.

If you use, for example, kits 24060, 24061, 24042 and 24043 to create a scene, in this case the scene will get clearly ironic shade, and if kits 24020, 24021, 24022, 24026, 24027, 24028, 24029, 24049 and 24050 will be added here, there will be a very interesting, a very natural and surprisingly lively street scene.

It should be also emphasized that figure of Françoise goes beyond the requirements imposed usually on polystyrene figures and, first of all, it represents a highly artistic miniature sculpture.

The kit is performed in 1/24 scale.
