1/24 Master Box Tyra Review/Preview
Posted by Ranger_Chris61 on Saturday, September 7, 2019 10:04 PM

 

Late getting this posted due to being out of town and having my return flight delayed by 2 days. Switching gears pretty dramatically this week and looking at a subject matter that we have only touched slightly on. We will be looking at Master Box's 1/24th scale Tyra figure kit.

Watched over the weekend. Nice review and gave you a thumb's up. Personally I don't mind the large mold lines, they're normally pretty easy to sand off except in places with detail like the shoe-laces. And big thanks to Master Box for orientating the face so you don't have to remove a mold-parting line right down the middle of it, the hair is way less trouble to get right again.

Hi Gamera;

      I watched the little review on Masterbox's - Tyra too. Being as how I have almost the whole series of their "Pin-UP series and some of the 1/24 ones I will say I thought they were simple but odd. They aren't labeled as such BUT some should be available only to mature modelers LOL.LOL. The detail is that Good.

   My Indian Princess without the clothing they provided is almost totally Nude! When she's assembled though she's very Pretty ! Now there are places where you have to be careful with Mold lines. I just figured, I guess that's the way they make them!

    These are the only figures I have found that I like. I have a Tank Commander and a small figure of Joe Stalin. These were my first except the figures that used to come with Revell car kits and Monogram plane Kits!

  A very interesting departure from Ships, Cars or Planes for sure! I think the silliest ones I ever saw were with the old "Highway Pioneers"  by Gowland and Gowland.. Talk about Ferret Faces !

Masterbox has some interesting subject matter with their figure line, some which are really out there and some that make for some great diorama additions.

Hi Ranger_Chris61!

    You know what I would like to see? Master Box do figures in period dress that fit with the cars I build in Comfortable sport Clothes,Evening Clothes and just Workaday wear. I don't relish chopping up figures and trying to sculpt clothes. I build models and although I have sewn sails I am not a good Tailor in miniature.  T.B.
