This was used in action in Normandy and the Invasion of Madagascar only. One thing you need to mention is that the kit has options for a CS (3" Gun) , standard 2 Pdr or 2 Pdr with Little John Adaptor. Unfortunately they only give you a breech and interior stowage for a Two Pounder armed version. A lovely detailed kit but some of the PE (particularly the Fire Extinguisher bracket in image 37) will be a complexing and confusing challenge. You really need micro origami skills with this one. Still an excellent kit however with full on detail and interior (minus Engine)

I have this kit and it is a beauty. Lots of detail and lots of parts. An excellent kit but not for the beginner!

Thank you Albowie for adding about the guns and issues, and I agree with you SSGToms it is an excellent looking kit but not one for the faint hearted or beginners.

Looks like I'll be picking one of these up, sooner or later. It's been a while since BRONCO first announced this kit, but I'm glad that I read the review and also your opinion of this kit! Thanks to All!
