Master Box -Beauties !
Posted by Tanker - Builder on Saturday, December 03, 2016 9:34 AM

I got to say , Hello :

  Got my Lay away yesterday at my LHS . The M.B. " Pinup " Collection . I wound up with seven of them . These are without a doubt the " Prettiest Ladies " I have ever seen in 1/25 !

  Very well molded and very interesting subject matter .They are in all kinds of calender type poses . The faces are very well molded and good expressions are there to bring out .

   Daring poses as is typical of the Genre .But beautifully executed .The master sculptor is a fellow by the name of A.Gagarin . Needless to say , he captured the essence of the subjects !

     Tyical long legged beauties posed to show their and their subjects assets .  All have different hairstyles and modes of attire . Some though do not have the attire as pictured  . Some have baseball hats instead of the hairstyle shown .Not a problem though .

      Many of you who are learning to do skin tones will have plenty of surface to practice on . They have one " Thunder Spirit " ( Not a pinup Really ). When you assemble her , except for her top she could be for all that's sacred " Nude "

      With this figure there's little left to imagination ! Almost titillating in fact .This figures almost borders on being banned . When done though , she will have everything covered though ! Again a Gagarin sculpture and darned well executed I might add .

     The haughtiness in her stance  , says she's not one Native American woman to be trifled with . With the tomahawk she has , I wouldn't . Makes me think of my first  wife ( May she be chuckling in heaven ) who was native American , A Doctor and very opinionated .This figure kinda reminds me of her in her twenties ! Give her deep reddish Black hair and there you go .

         Of course my Mrs was very demure and proper . Convents do that to them !

 Anyway , I recommend these figures to anyone who does them. Remember Master Box Limited . The " Thunder Spirit " Figure is kit number MB24019 . Enjoy !    T.B.

 That "not as pictured" was a bit of a bummer...but, as time goes by, you forget about it!

I picked up the set in 1/35, as well as just 4 of the bigger ones. Haven't gotten to the 35ths yet, but did up the others....a staff car needs some staff...right?!!!

 

I "missed the mark" a little bit. Figures really aren't strong in my wheelhouse!

Wow, I like those Femis! You don't give yourself enough credit! I've thought about buying the 1/35th set and putting them on a tank draped with patriotic bunting for a war bonds drive but that's another idea that who knows when I'll get around to.

I did order two of the 1/24th civilian figures to go with a car kit though.

This is funny because I came across some of the more racy Master Box figures online somewhere just last night. My wife would never let me get away with having those on my bench. LOL

Oh My ;

 That is a very well done presentation ! These figures for me are a break from my client's/friends ship . Now I haven't done too many . Mostly in 1/35 and they came out all right I guess . My first was a German soldier just resting and leaning on his rifle .I called him " Hermann the German ". I think he was early Hasegawa/Minicraft .

     I did one last summer and someone said after looking at him in a magnifier that he looked like one of the early pictures of Joseph Stalin . That's okay though . My next was larger and he was a German Tank Commander in overcoat . He was difficult in that it was hard to get his coat looking right . I wasn't used to shading or glazing .

    I do find figures fascinating .They challenge your artistic side and tell a story all in the pose and clothing they have . When I finish the " Ladies " I will try to find " Nose Art Ladies " to do . I am actually enjoying them .

 I am sorry about the lack of pictures , But , take my word , Over time they will get done . I may send the hard copies to the Gallery .  Tanker - Builder

Hi Fermis ;

   The " Not as Pictured " mattered not , as you stated . I was fascinated the way they assembled . Unusual at best . I have three from years ago and they are four piece .They go with the Revell car kits . They will definitely get done now !

 I even have Humper cogitating on these ! T.B.

They're a bit rough...but nice to do something a bit different!

Tanker-Builder, is that a '40 Ford? I was just about to buy the Tamiya 1942 U.S.Army Staff Car kit for an upcoming diorama (diorama will be called the "Barn Find"), but your vehicle might work better. Who makes the kit?

That "staff car" was mine.

I believe it was a '40 Ford coupe from Monogram. I won it in a raffle, and am not at all into cars. Probably not correct for a staff car, as it's a 2 door, but I care not! I just painted it green and got the stars from the spared box.
