  1. Here is my first ever 1/350 scale model. Bronco models 1/350 Song type 039 Submarine. The Type 039 submarine (NATO reporting name: Song-class) is a class of diesel-electric submarines built for the Chinese PLA Navy. The class is the first diesel-electric submarine to be fully developed within China and also the first Chinese diesel-electric submarine to use the modern teardrop hull shape. Apart from a scratch built 1/1200 scale Oberon class built in my teens, this is also my first ever model of a Submarine. The Bronco kit is quite basic but in my opinion has good genera
  2. So with work on the Vosper continuing, and a couple of other "offline" projects going on (each of which will get an RFI), I decided to start my first ever venture into 1/350 scale maritime modelling. I have great ambitions for this scale, having watched others on here producing superb examples, @robgizlu, @Ex-FAAWAFU, @beefy66, @Courageous, @longshanks and @Nick Charnock to name just a few. You have all conspired to inspire me into this scale, so in short, this is your fault! I wanted a quick subject - is there such a thing as a quick Terry build I hear you ask? Well, surely a 1/35
  3. This is my conversion of Academy's 1/72 North American OV-10D to the earlier YOV-10D Night Observation Gunship System (NOGS). 2 OV-10A's, 152660 and 155395 (note there is one of many typos in the Squadron Gunships book with lists 155660 in one place and 152660 in others). These had a lengthened nose with an FLIR turret and the sponsons removed and an M-197 20mm Gatling gun turret added. There is a MPC kit purporting to be of the YOV-10D but it is inaccurate as far as the M-197 and FLIR turrets and is pretty crude so I set it aside and used the Academy kit instead. I did use the M-197 mount fr
  4. Uh oh...new obsession I'll never finish anything.....
  5. OK here's my KUTA build. Started at the beginning of the year and flew as a build but has been languishing ever since, mainly due to a couple of reasons. firstly being tail heavy - which the kit warns about and says to weight the nose - I did (by gluing some ball bearings in and also some just behind the cockpit) but obviously not enough. This means I'm going to have to make her 'in flight' which will be a pain. Secondly there's an awful join just behind the cockpit area, which I'm not entirely sure how to fill - given there will be the multi-piece clear parts to attach.
  6. Having recently posted an A13 in the RFI section, I was keen to have another go at one of these nice little models from Bronco. I’ve had this in the stash for a number of years now, having picked it up for a bargain price at the Saumur model show. I say bargain because not only was the price good, but it came with two sets of Miniart figures, all for the desert, which was handy as I intend to finish this as a North Africa based tank. This was one of the later issues of Bronco’s A13 and I’m glad to say that they made some modifications, such as individual link tracks and corre
  7. Hallo again Now I started a new field. Tank and trucks from WW2. Most of them German and Russian. Moderns will be from the IDF. It is a totally different approach in opposition to aircraft modelling, which I do for 3 decades already. I want to show this models, as new from the workshop. Not battle used. Just minor weathering. Happy modelling
  8. Good morning (or whatever) and happy new year all, here I am with another attempt at a Work in Progress... emphasis on progress. No, emphasis on "attempt"! It is, in case you haven't already figured it out, the Bronco 1/35 Piper L-4 Cub (aka Grasshopper). A friend of mine recently purchased an actual (1:1 scale) Piper Cub, and enlisted me to help him truck it to its new home in Maine. You see, in a former life, I went to school to get my aircraft mechanic's license, and had some involvement in "real" airplanes. (He went to school to become a professional pilot, which he is. So
  9. Don't expect me to pronounce that correctly ... It is one of these ... a German gun on a French (Hotchkiss) chassis. The Germans made about 24 of these and lost them all in the Falaise Pocket. There is a film of Rommel inspecting a group of these here: Note: That film shows various H-39 chassis with three different guns. I think the crews in this movie are wearing Sumpfmuster 44 camouflage tops. Wish I knew, how to reproduce that?
  10. My set was second hand and missing the RAF Leading Aircraft Woman, here are the other three.

  11. Evening all. With my efforts to complete the on bench projects, I think I can call this one done. Just a small thing started to break up the painting monotony on the several AFV's to finish. Quick build, and paint job, so a nice one to do. One last thing to do, after I studied the images is a light dust coat on the stowage to blend it all together. Couldn't be bothered to dirty the AB tonight, so will lave to wait until I set up a paint session in a week or so. So here she is.
  12. A little something I threw together watching the Cricket World Cup the last two weeks. This is Bronco's 1/35 40mm Bofors gun. It's a good kit, well detailed and fitting but with some frustrating points. Some sections are over complicated with detail included that cannot be seen once completed or photo etch that could have been included as molded on detail with a loss of detail. Also make sure you read ahead in the instructions as parts often need to fit into others in steps down the road, if you mess up the alignment you will have trouble down the road. It would also be nice if Bronco included
  13. Afternoon all Managed some time this week, and decided on a change from all the projects......to start a new one.. Came across this on Ebay for a tenner with shipping, so couldn't resist. A standard 1936 saloon by Opel pressed into service and on the run in '45. Built some field applied luggage rack for the rear and roof rack. The kit overall for the price wasn't bad, but the wheels/tires with....get this 8, yes 8 parts were a little excessive just to get some tread detail. The front wheel connections to are something to be desired and unless you have Tamiya/Dragon mould skill
  14. I believe that this was Bronco’s second issue of an A13, and as such, it had the individual track links which were a whole lot better than the original (too short) rubber band offerings. I never did get around to correcting the engine deck, but I will with the two others that I’ve got in the stash. All in all, it’s quite a nice kit to build with not too many surprises. I finished it as a tank of the 10th Hussars, based in France in 1940. As far as I can remember, it was built OOTB and finished with Tamiya paints in a G3/G4 greens camouflage. The figure is from Hornet.
  15. OV-10A Bronco 1:72 Revell The Bronco was conceived as a light attack, long loiter aircraft of modest size, enabling it to operate from roads close to the combat zone. As so often seems the case, the final design turned out to be much larger and heavier due to the requirements of the avionics and ejection seats, thus limiting its use to conventional airfields. The twin boom aircraft first flew in 1965 and was destined to serve with the US Navy, Airforce and Marines as a replacement for the Cessna O-1 & O-2. The Marines were the first to take the OV-1

  18. Hi Everyone, I’ve not been posting completed models for a while although I managed to complete a bunch over the last year. Starting to catch up now. The first one is OV-10A Bronco in Vietnam markings of VAL-4. I have a mixed feeling about the kit and about the effort I did to get it completed. The kit can be assembled out of the box with moderate effort (only sponson to nacelle fit is really poor) and will definitely result in a decent model that would 100% look like a Bronco (it’s probably impossible to do a Bronco kit that would not look like a Bronco). But that works
  19. Here I present my latest build, an OOB build of a Vanguard Class SSBN using the Bronco kit. The only bit of work needed was the mating of the hull halves. Primed using Halford's grey primer, German tank grey for lower hull and Halford's satin black was used overall. The sub was 'Kleared', decaled and coated with Tamiya satin varnish. Das Boot was masked to leave the deck exposed, with VERY low tac masking over the two decals and painted with Humbrol matt black and the sonar array was glossed with Klear. Five masts were fitted int
  20. OV-10 Bronco Replacement Metal Undercarriage 1:32 Aerocraft Models - For Kitty Hawk Kit The 1/32 Kitty Hawk Bronco is a good kit. However the undercarriage is a weak point (literally) in the kit. New brass ones have been made by Ali of Aerocraft models. Metal Undercarriage legs In this set you get new replacement cast brass undercarriage legs for the kit. The new parts are direct replacements for the kit parts. The quality of the castings are some of the best I have seen and much better that other metal sets. There are some slight casting ma
  21. Well, here we go with another WiP, this time it'll be a submarine. Now, don't expect a long epic build as they don't happen with modern submarine kits. The WiPs subject is the Vanguard Class SSBN in 1/350 by Bronco. The Vanguard class is currently in service with the Royal Navy after replacing the dated Polaris Class and its replacement, the Dreadnought, is already on its way. This is a big box, it's only that size due the length of the hull. Box contents: hull halves, one sprue, PE, base and instruction booklet. Eight page instruction booklet.
  22. Because of an extended enforced break from modelling at the moment, I've not been able to post anything for a while, so the number of shelf queens that I've got has increased. Therefore the only things that I can post here in the RFI thread, are some of my older models. This one is the Bronco kit and if my memory serves me right, I built it about seven years ago. It's not a bad kit to build although, as this was the early release, there were one or two items that required changing. The tracks are Bronco's workable tracks, the main gun came from the barrel store and I used Eduard's etched set f
  23. Pitot Probe for OV-10 Bronco 1:32 Master The latest release from Master Models in their series of replacement pitot probes have recently arrived at BMs London offices. It is well up to their usual standard and very sharp, so care should be taken once fitted. It is so much better than the styrene ones found in the kit. [AM-32-109] – Has been designed for the lovely North American OV-10 Bronco from Kitty Hawk Conclusion Master Models must have a tremendous machining set up to be able to produce these pitot probes and to produce them
  24. This will be my entry for the 10th Anniversary GB. It's Bronco's offering of the British Cruiser Tank A10. It'll be a struggle to finish it as I'm doing another in the M3/M4 GB, so having said that, I'm going to go against the grain for me, and build it (almost) out of the box to save time. I haven't decided which version I will build yet, I'll decide once I get started. John.
  25. I've had this in the stash for a while, and have spent a couple of hours on it on-and-off between projects. The build has been nice so far, I had feared that the model would be complex, but I am not finding it anything more than an enjoyable challenge. The parts fit nicely, and the plastic is pleasant to work with. My only issue is my own fault, that being losing a tiny piece that would attach the wheel to the axle. I will have to manufacture one out of stretched sprue, making the whole assembly less solid, but other than demotivating me, it is not much of a problem. I have not yet tried any o
