This appears to be a four man patrol of US Marines searching and area of Jungle for enemy combatants. They look like they might be going out to set up a listening post.

The Kit:

Contains 1 sprue with 84 pieces that have no flash.
This set contains four (4) figures one Radio Operator, One Designated Marksman (Sniper) and two other Marines. They appear to be patrolling a somewhat secure area of the jungle, somewhere in the South Pacific (since they are all in alert but semi-relaxed positions). This is another great set for figure painters and those of us that enjoy figures in a “non combat” pose.
The weapons, uniforms and equipment look accurate, you get one M-1/M-2 Carbine for the Radio operator. One Springfield rifle with scope for the sniper and two M-1 Garand rifles for the other two Marines.
Conclusion: Master Box once again is producing four excellent looking figures all in semi-relaxed poses. Individually they are great and can be used as single figures or they can be put into a diorama right out of the box.
Uniforms and equipment are covered in numerous books, so information on these should not be too hard to find.
Overall this should build into an outstanding replica and is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys figures. I would like to thank Alexander Surzhenko of Master Box Models for the review kit.
