Good review Dave, Thanks.

I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need this kit or the forthcoming Bronco Staghound but to be honest I'm fighting a losing battle

Thanks for the review - I'll make sure to look out for that locating pins issue when I start mine. Thanks for including some images & diagrams as well - not often you see that in an internet article, but very helpful.

This is a very old review but I though I would throw my observations in. I am in the midst of a build on a Bronco Humber and find some serious fit issues involving the transmission connecting to Part A-17 but do not see this addressed so I have to think either I am doing something wrong or Dave preformed a miracle and did not mention it.

Anyone else that can speak up to this?

I did a review on it for AMPS a while back. I don't recall any major problems with the engine other than replacing the kit supplied coolant tubing (actually clear solid vinyl)with proper tubing

I think the figure is of actor Michael Caine from the movie 'A Bridge Too Far'. Near the beginning of the movie he is being driven down a line of Shermans, in a Humber.
