A while back Russ Amott did a thorough in-box review of Bronco Models 1/35 "US GPW 1/4 ton 4X4 Utility Truck (mod. 1942) w/10-CWT trailer and Airborne crew" kit. Want to know how it builds up? Check out this build and find out what's waiting for you!

You're very welcome. I love seeing a good build review like this one. And I think everyone loves the ubiquitous Jeep as it's one of the icons of WW2. Good stuff to read and it will help out anyone with the build.

This is one of the nicest "gp" kits I've seen. Maybe I can delve into the Allied forces, during WWII.

After reading about your build of Bronco's GPW,I think I'll stay with Tamiya 1/35 and Hasegawa 1/24 Jeep kits.

It took quite some time to find someone who had this in stock, but I finally got ahold of it. I'm really impressed with the delicacy of the parts.
