Thanks to all for the positive comments. I don't really know about the rarity of the subject. I think it's more the fact that the kit has been out for quite a while so you seldom see them built. I don't really know why that is, but you'll see a hundred Sherman, Panther or Tiger builds for every Bishop.

Personally, I enjoy building Bronco kits. I've built their A-13 Mk II Cruiser Mk. IVa, and their T17E1 Staghound in addition to the Bishop. I just wish they would tackle the rest of the early war Cruiser tanks like the Crusader series, the A9, the A11 etc...

Very nice. Are they really so rare? I built one 2 years ago!

Congrats on the feature, Paul! We've been lucky enough to follow the build in the 500+ campaign. A great showcase of modelling skills!

Great build!

I'd never even heard of or seen pictures of it before.

There are a lot of these unbuilt in stashes all across the world. Nice to see a well done example for once.

Paul H shares some pictures of his exquisite Bishop 25 pdr SPG from Bronco in 1/35 that he recently finished for the 500+ campaign.
