Bronco 1/35 M22 Locust

This was a really fiddly little kit with extremely small parts but of an interesting subject. It does have a full internal detail.

 

I added some cast tecture to the turret as it looked to smooth to me

I still need to get the correct dull coat for it, no luck in my attempts sofar though.

 

It also seems that the pix are very oixulated, my camera is basically un serviceable by now, will try load better pix another time

Hello!

Lookin' good!

Many years ago I read a web page where somebody was restoring just such a tank. He found a chassis without turret that was used on a farm as a tractor and this was the base for the restoration. I guess after so many years the restoration should be done by now...

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Testors dullcote produces a pretty good flat.  Nice job.  I've never seen that subject before.

Thanks,

John

Now there is one rare subject! I don't think that I have seen one built on here or anywhere else prior to yours Theuns. Well done! Toast The Infantry Museum at Ft Benning used to have one in their tank park display long ago. It is a small machine to see in person.

It's a cool little tank. The one I remember seeing had a fairly smooth cast turret. US tanks during WW2 had a pretty well-manufactured appearance, unlike some of the former Soviet stuff I saw that had rough casting and giant weld cut marks.

So cool! Great job on her Theuns! 

I too have never seen one built up. And it's one of the US/UK tank kits that I don't have.
