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

Cheers,

Wonder if I can get a discount for purchasing a case of those ATV 4X4 kits?  :)

It looks very similar to the Airfix 1/48 ATV kit where you do get two vehicles, trailers and riders

Yes, perty much scaled up from the Airfix 1:48th scale Quad ATV kit and that is why I like it so much more :)

I think I have at least four of the Airfix kits in the stash at the moment.  The larger Quad ATV allows me to dispose of several die-cast metal/plastic toy Quad ATV things that I had picked up as a last resort. 

Now if someone would only offer up a decent snowmobile and sledge combination in addition to some decent x-country motorcycle subjects in 1:35th scale ... :\

Nice touch in that Bronco set: the guy at front right is holding an L129A1 sharpshooter rifle, which was a very recent, low-key purchase (2012) that many people don't even realise we've got.

That would be nice!

I found see quite a seller with a (cheap) Landrover 110 chassis, a 6x6 Perentie and a LRPV...





Loads of specialised Perenties as well - Ambulance, Mortar Carrier, AD vehicle, etc.

New in 1/35:





Tempted to get the first one just for the trailer...I suppose I could turn the tank itself into a firefighting one rather than the current flamethrower one.  Turn the flamethrowers into water cannons, remove the gun...

 More of a prow than a nose, I'd say...which opens some nautical possibilities.

Save your money and do as Frank says, the kit is cheap and you are not stuck with a spare tank.  In fact the Mirage kit is cheap enough you could make a road train that Old Wombat would be envious of :)

It'll be interesting to see how this stacks up with the imminent Airfix long-nose P-40. Seems like a silly move on Bronco's part, but we shall see.
