I hear its a snap together kit aimed at the younger crowd. Still, I do wonder why 32nd and not 35th?

According to "The Modelling News" (LINK!), Bronco will release more German "Panzer Grey" stuff, as well as this neat set:

British Army ATV Quad Bike & Trailer w/Soldier
1/35th scale
#CB35207




Well, it only took them four years. "The Modelling News" now reports (LINK!) the set is due for release in May. Don't know how often I've looked through the Bronco pile in my LHS hoping to spot this very set. Looks like the wait is over. I hope.

Jeff, you still good for a case of these? Or did you get the Live Resin ATV?

Hi Moritz, - no, I am still waiting on Bronco to get off their A$$eS and produce their kit.  No way was I going to purchase that LiveResin ATV kit for the price they are asking. 
Plus the Bronco offering comes with Gruntniks, a wagon/trailer and the ATV = Winning!  :smiley:

@Robert/Kitnut617 - close, I think the Bronco kit was originally announced around the same time that Airfix produced their little Quad ATV kit.  Have a couple of the Airfix Quad ATV kits and they are nice, perfect for stuffing in the back of a V-22 or any helicopter with an aft ramp that can accommodate something that size.

The Ram is LOOONG overdue as an injection molded kit. I’m glad to see it! Heck, there’s some great “whif in a box” potential like a gun tank in combat or post-war use by Swiden*, Notaslavia or Syldavia!

ABOUT DAMNED TIME! 

Finally!  An actual in-the-box kit review of the Bronco Models (CB35207) 1:35th scale British Army ATV Quad Bike and Trailer with Soldiers courtesy of Al Bowie at Missing-Linx Forums.

So now we hurry up and wait for the kit to hit the LSP shelves.  Yay!

For a change it's not Greg. :-\

You may all thank me later, as I (relatively recently) bought 2 x Live Resin & 1 x MMK Quads. :icon_crap:

Looks really nice. Probably an insta-buy once the LHS gets a couple.  :smiley:
I like the decal sheet for the soldier's patches. Nice touch!

The LiveResin Quad is nice but it does not have all of the exta bits that the Bronco kit has to offer.  Plus that premium price for the resin was painful enough to keep me away.

Dong Feng-1 (DF-1), or Project 1059
China’s first ballistic missile system, a licensed copy of the Soviet R-2 (SS-2 ‘Sibling’) short-range ballistic missile, which itself was derived from the German V-2 but with doubled range. The missile was 17.7 m in length and 1.65 m in diameter, with four trapezoidal-shape stabilising fins attached to the bottom. The missile had a launch weight of 20.5 t, and a take-off thrust of 37 t. The maximum flight range was 590 km. The missile was transported on a truck-towed trailer, which also served as the launcher platform.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
