17 pdr Self-Propelled Gun 'ARCHER' by Bronco in 1/35th

Haven't built a 1/35th AFV since 1999 and long overdue for something new.
Picked up this Bronco Kit at Kings Hobby in Austin, Texas and thought to give it a whirl here on vBench.

Yes, the PRICE!!!! $82.49 USD for the kit...

It looks like a very good out of the box build...better be for the price, but might spring for a metal 17pdr barrel (do I need to?) and an upgrade on the 30 cal MG.

You think for the price, a metal barrel would be included, but no.

Wish me luck and thank you.

thank you.

Ropi,

Thank you for the well wishes.
Yes in-between the up-dates of the "Got Wood" & the "WTF is that" vBench builds,
maybe I can be serious and get 'down and dirty' with this 'Archer'

OH Alex don't do this to me. I've got one and it's all I can do to keep from tearing into it and now you're just going to make matters worse.

I can't take it much longer

Has bought this set. But there is a problem in a suspension bracket - distance between skating rinks in the cart. Very much is evident.
This problem with all Valentine from MiniArt....
