No, I haven't seen one built up either. First there was the gimmicky clear version which may have delayed purchases. Then the regular version kind of snuck out.Personally I think they are way overpriced and am waiting till I find one for a reasonable price. Then, knowing Bronco, they are over engineered with way to many tiny parts which is putting people off building them. I would like to see a version without interior at a lower cost. Maybe you're ? will inspire someone to post their work.

Re Humber armoured car
April 21 2012, 4:55 AM
I am in progress at the moment , Yes there are many parts but it is a stunning little kit, I got mine from HK and it was not that expensive.I will be painting it shortly, The glass parts don't really make any difference to the kit as you still get the plain parts also with the exception of the turret shell.
Do I hear a veiled enquiry about the cries of "we want more Allied stuff" etc etc.
I have not seen that many posts in the overall schemem of things, some Staghounds, a few Humber Scouts, (2) Humber A/C, and the odd softskin Tilly etc.
Tanks/tracked vehicles have featured slightly better,Carriers, Matilda's, Valentines, Cromwells et al.
In comparison, it would appear that the examples of British vehicles is not overly featured.
Despite cries of what is wanted, are the available kits not being purchased ??
I have no answer to this, though I agree that UK prices are high, you get a lot of parts, the Humber A/C for example, no need for after market engine/tyres/etched bits. So is the cost that high??
Remember too, plastic is a PETROLEUM product, filled your car up recently ???
