Darren Baker takes a look at one of the most recent figure releases from Master Box LTD, this time around we are offered a ten figure set with civilians, tank crew and paratroopers. This set is titled ‘The 101st Light Company, US Paratroopers and British Tank man, France 1944’.

Very nice set of figures! Reminds me of a scene from "Band of brothers" series

This set might more properly be titled "101st Meets 30 Corps, Holland 1944" as it closely resembles their link-up near Eindhoven during Operation Market-Garden (i.e. A Bridge Too Far).

I was checking the sprues and I could be wrong, but I'm not seeing any first aid pouches or, more importantly, canteens for the paratroopers.

This review is about US paratrooper tank riders, not the Sherman
