Response to Bronco Archer

So after blood, sweat and tears she is finally built. Although built out of the box this kit was still challenging. If typical of modern kits then in the demand for greater detail we have ended up with fiddly, frustrating builds that are questionably not worth it? I don't know but that is for the individual modeller to work out for themselves.

For the extra bits like the wiring for the headlights and smoke emitters I used fuse wire and not what they suggest, stretched sprue, which frankly wouldn't work. Be careful of the road wheel alignment, this can be very easy to knock out and then fitting the track can be problematic. Choose your version carefully, the inclusion of the No 19 wireless aerial is debateable as the only radio supplied with the kit is the infantry/artillery No 43 so the only aerial mount I used was the left hand one as you look at the nose section. Comments are invited please.
