The pictures really are the story here as they should answer most of your questions. The only downside I have found is the moulded engine grills on the hull but on a plus side Bronco has included copper cable for the tow cable rather than the string often included. The inclusion of an engine in the kit is a nice addition as is the partial interior allowing hatches to be left open rather than all buttoned up. At this time I believe this is the best kit available for this vehicle and a more in depth review will follow this one soon.

About Darren Baker (CMOT)

Thanks a lot for spotting Darren In my opinion Bronco and Miniart have becoming the best kit companies recently. This kit seems to confirm my thought

Nice to have another interesting subject! Hard to discuss a model without actually holding ti in your hands, but with all the attention to detail and molds (including the tiny wingnuts!) the awful molded on engine intake mesh is really surprising... What's up with that?

I did ask Bronco about those intakes and was told that due to the difficulty many had with creating the correct contours they had opted to go with a plastic part, it is a pity they did not consider giving you a choice in the box but it is still a great looking kit. There are so many after market kits where this part can be got cheaply with the only issue being most are for the Trumpter KV tank.
