Thanks for the review Tom, I was eyeing that one myself but there is no time... We seem to have a similar taste. Christmas is not too far away now, is it?

Hi Stefan!

Indeed we do. It is a gorgeous kit, but will be a real beast to build and paint. I just hope I can finish it for the upcoming artillery campaign!

Great review James.

I will not be worrying about the ejector pin marks under the fenders as you won't be able to see them when the kit is finished anyway. Why stress over something you won't ever see again? Just enjoy having a Bishop in styrene in 1/35 for the collection.

Old post I realize, but can anyone tell me what the parts are for in Image #19 in the review? That sprue came with my Bronco 25 pdr and limber, but it's not in the instructions.

The parts in question are the body of the auxiliary fuel tank, the ends are shown in image 54. Looks like more parts for the spares box
