Master Box Charlie on the left – Vietnam War Series in 1/35th Scale Kit # MB35105
By Shawn Gehling
This is their second set in this series and is based on three US Army figures in a Ford Mutt M-151 (jeep) taking fire from the jungle on the left. It also has two Viet Cong figures that have ambushed the vehicle as is passes. The vehicle is not in the kit. It is the figures only.

The Kit:

Contains 1 sprue with 61 pieces that have no flash.
This set contains five (5) figures two Vietnamese Civilian combatants (Viet Cong) typical to any area during that timeframe. (One is directing the ambush and one is hit by enemy fire) most likely not the .50 caliber machinegun as it would cause way more damage. Three US Infantry that can be manning a Fort Mutt (M-151) Jeep (not provided). One is manning the vehicle (pedistal mounted) .50 Caliber machinegun (provided in the kit). One is returning fire with an M-16 machinegun and the third is the driver and can be built two different ways (Variant one the driver of the vehicle ready to get them out of the ambush and variant two is wounded from the ambush).
The weapons, uniforms and equipment look accurate.
Conclusion: Master Box once again is producing five excellent looking figures all in action poses.
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.
