Just posted, in the form of a ''Preview'' is a short introduction to one of Masterbox Ltd''s imminent releases - 3520 - ''D-Day'' 6th June 1944. This is a four-figure set portaying U.S. 29th Infantry Division during the Normandy landings. The Preview can be seen:

Gday Jim
They look nice mate.
Would you know if there is a raised area for the patch on the figs? Because the artwork appears to be the big red '1' , whereas the 29th had a circular design?
Cheers

That certainly does look like a 1st Infantry Division badge. The kit looks great, no matter what division they are from. Do you happen to know how they compare in size to the DML 29th Inf. kit? It would be great to combine the kits to have more troops available.

@ Rodger & Bradley - just checked the figures and they DON'T have any moulded patches on their arms, so... As to size, I compared them to the Gen II USMC figures and no problems of incombatibility whatsoever...

Good news then!
They would look the part with both kits mixed together, and even the other MB set which has one dragging a wounded comrade would add some visual action.
