That was a good review Darren.

I just recieved this set a few days ago along with the Bronco 25 pounder,very nice.

The detail on the figures in this set is exceptional.
The orangee looking plastic reminds me of earlier days of another well known plastic figure manufacturer when they first started out.

This will be a lovely vignette with the crew firing the gun in action .


Cheers
Michael

It would be interesting if some of these figs could be modified to fit into the Archer. The problem is making figs fit into a restricted space.

Biggles it would not surprise me if Bronco did release a set of figures for the Archer soon as well.

A very nice set of figures for the 25pdr. I have no problem with the offier figure, in fact I'm glad he is included.

As the Bronco 25 pdr can be built as either an early or late gun it would be nice to see a crew for N Africia as well, although it is possible either Tamiya or DML might release their NA crews as separate kits!

The new developments in artillery are excellent and providing crews is a major plus. Now all we need is for one of the manufacturers to take that extra step and provide some new towing vehicles too. A new FAT would be good although you can still get the Italeria Chevy Gun Tractor which is a nice kit despite its age. Secretly I'm hoping for a QLB to tow the Bofors and it would be good to see some British Search Lights and Range finding equipment at some point in the future.

T'is an excellent time to be modelling British/Commonwealth Subjects.

I'd like to know if they will fit nicely into the Dragon Sexton II? Are there other decal options to depict a self propelled unit?
