Ford Bronco

  • move
Klaus Eberl has built a Monogram Ford Bronco kit in 1/32nd scale which is an old snap tite kit from the 80s, with scratch modifications to the rear cargo bed plus adding a 50 cal MG from Tamiya. It was painted and weathered with K4 and Ammo of Mig acrylics and weathering products. The original idea was to paint the kit like commercial trucks used in the 80s by the Chilean Army in internal security missions

The Bronco looks really good. Good job on the camo and weathering. The only change I would make is to replace the jerry cans and racks with better ones. They look off w/just one handle and are not very well detailed. 1/35 jerry cans in racks would look much better.

Good idea Gino, i'll do that for sure thanks for the input.

Very original idea! You should do a diorama with this and a Soviet Mig of some type above. You can produce a scenario similar to the movie, "Red Dawn"! Two Thumbs Up for originality alone!!!

@YellowHammer- So glad you mentioned Twilight 2000! I haven't heard of that game in years! I played it religiously when I was a kid on my fathers old IBM in the early 90's.

We had a few of these in my ear;y days in the California Air National Guard. They were such a pain to get into the back seat of. They served their purpose well for two people at most. We used them to run cameras, film and other stuff around when we had RF-4C's. Brings back some good memories. Regards, Eric
