Robert Blokker (FAUST) has just given us a VERY complete Build-Review of a (soon to be released) figure set from the Ukrainian manufacturer, Masterbox. The new set is MB3526 - German Machine gun crew Eastern front, Kurland 1944. There is an element in this set (the MG) which has never been done by a plastic manufacturer before. Robert''s very complete Review, along with many excellent photos, can be seen:

Interesting review on this new kit from MB.In his review Robert wonders at the use of an MG08.My father told me that when he was 'drafted' into the Latvian army(there were regular army units,not just Legion troops fighting for the Axis) there was a shortage of modern type weapons,and they were thus issued weapons from old store piles,late 43 to early 44.As the war progressed they gradually recieved equipment that we expect to see being used by Wehrmacht troops.HTH.

Thanks for that addition... It was information I couldn't find in my books and also the internet was not really clear about this..> Somehow it makes sense.
