Modelkasten Machine Gun Girls figure set Vol. 1, in 1/35th Scale.
By Shawn W. Gehling


This is an outstanding set of civilian female figures using MG-34 or MG-42 Machine guns.
The Kit:

Contains 1 sprue with 21 pieces that have no flash.
This set contains three (3) female figures in dresses (Defending the Fatherland). One is standing, one is sitting and one is leaning over something (could be a vehicle or debris at a choke point on a street). Your imagination is the only limitation. The only draw back with this kit is it comes with no weapons, but since I have an extensive parts box of weapons, this is not a problem for me.
The dresses look excellent and could be modified to represent woman auxillary uniforms or they could be Partisans, if you wanted them to be? But hey there is something sexy about a girl in a dress hunkered down behind an MG. Right?
Conclusion: Modelkasten has a great looking set of female figures and I for one am hoping that there will be more sets to go with them. Individually they could be used as mini-diorama's or you can have them supporting a Volkstrum unit.
Overall this should build into an outstanding replica and is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys figures. I would like to thank My son Travis who is stationed in Japan for the review kit.

Shocked Hmmmmm , Shawn , you need to get out more Razz ! Hehehehehehehe

I think the set does have some great possibility , and is a bit of fun . What a shame for the beginner that the guns are not included , I can see some women picking this as a fun starter kit into the hobby !

Jenny,
LOL, I've been so busy, I haven't had much time to build, but I do still buy and get them as gifts...
I agree that it is sad there are no guns, but I think the figures look great.

Well I suppose we can equip these 3 German frauleins with MG-34s taken from Dragon or Master Box kits. Tamiya's MG-34s seem dated by today's standards. Laughing
