Here's my entry for the 2018 Anti-Aircraft G.B.

Unfortunately, no crew with the kit, so I'll have to butcher some spare U.S. figures I have in the stash....Bit of a cop out, as they are shown on the box art!

Plenty of plastic + plus some P.E. Most of the stuff will probably be taken up where it won't be seen - in the chassis and suspension.....

Anyway, I'll put it all back in the box until January...:sad:

Nice one.
Bronco do a figure set for a Bofors but they are British/commonwealth.... Maybe they do a US set as well?

Paul - I've flogged it to Dave (Gern), but as he has 'stashitis', who knows when he will build it!

"Stashitis" :tears-of-joy::tears-of-joy::tears-of-joy:...we all have symptoms of it although some are in denial.

Cheers,

Sorry chaps, this kit is no longer in my possession.....:crying:

Dave (Gern) is now the proud owner. So I think it best if I delete this thread soon.

Thanks for the comments.

I built this a few years ago a thoroughly enjoyable build with a few tweaks.
