Master Box Pin-up Betty in 1/24th Scale Kit # MB24002

By Shawn W. Gehling

Many of us waited for the 1/35th scale group of these lovely ladies to arrive and now we have them in 1/24th scale. Each is being released individually. This is the second kit in this series and each is bigger and better than their smaller 1/35th scale counter-part.
This kit gives you one female figure, US Pin-up style from the nineteen forties or World War II. This one is standing with a flag staff in one hand and her other hand on her hip. If you have ever seen World War II era Pin-ups then I don’t need to explain anything. She is dressed (or undressed if you wish) in scanty clothing representing a beautiful woman supporting the US of A and the brave men fighting the war. She is well molded and looks great.
The Kit:

Contains 1 sprue with 11 pieces that have no flash and one dry transfer sheet for the US flag.  Although the excellent Dry Transfer US Flag is included, (it is the wrong one for that era) as it has 50 stars vice the 48 star flag used during World War II (Alaska and Hawaii were not states yet).
Conclusion: Master Box has rescaled the beautifully done female Pin-ups just waiting to be built to raise the spirits of every red blooded American boy.
Everything that she comes with is covered in numerous books, so information on these should not be too hard to find.
Overall she looks great and can be placed alone or with a 1/24th scale vehicle. She is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys figures.  I would like to thank Alexander Surzhenko of Master Box Models for the review kit, you can check out their entire line of kits at http://www.mbltd.info/
