Staghound as a basis of comparisonJune 7 2012 at 11:55 AM

Response to Agree
Great response here, I expected to be howled off the stage by the cognisanti.
When the Bronco Staghound came out, I bought two. (BTW, is there a twelve-step program for plastic junkies? I MAY want to join.) Then the Italeri Staghound came around. I bought one. I built one Bronco and the Italieri. As I was deciding that this was a really neat vehicle with bags of potential for Commonwealth and Polish forces in Italy, I wanted more. I went right to Italieri and consigned my Bronco left-over to my local hobby shop (where it still resides). Side by side built up, they both looked reasonable to me. Stowed to the nines, painted, and weathered, in my mind's eye there was little difference. Maybe that is why I keep hoping Italieri will stay on their armored car program.
When you look at what Hobbyboss has done with their Easy Assembly 1/72 and now 1/48 aircraft kits, there has to be a market for such kits in armor. If you hve not looked at one of these kits, please do so. They are little marvels.
