Shane is building the Bronco Horsa glider from WWII. A behemoth of a plane in 1/35 scale.

and an old pilot remembering how it was to fly one:

His comments on the take-off method are amusing

Nice going! I really enjoyed the video — exactly the sort of thing that perks my interest in model building and what makes this site so great. Thank you for sharing!

Cheers!🍺

Wow! That's really large. Would need a complete table top dio to do it justice. Can't wait for the next installment.

Hi Shane

Awesome stuff! Great presentation. I'm really looking forward to following how your build progresses.

I must admit my not-so-secret hope is that this kit is a sufficient success to convince Bronco to also downsize it to 1:48 and hit the cross-over "middle-scale" Aircraft/Armour market.

All the best

Looking good. I have got to final stages of my build. Decals are on and I just need to add a few final details......then build a base.

But Why? there is the mood-hoovering FM Version to sharpen your dementor-fighting skills on.. Horsa Wip

and finished:





Shane is doing a grand job on the Bronco Horsa, better than mine
