Cruiser Tank Mk. I/ICS A9/A9 CS Bronco Models 1/35

Post by Milan Mynar » 03 Dec 2020 18:44

I started building another model of an interesting tank from 1940. Models from Bronco Models are good and build quite well.

From the offered versions in this kit, I chose the CS version, designed for close infantry support.

I decided to use this collor set.

I sprayed this model by these collors.

The model is already finished. I didn't overdo it with wear and tear, the real tanks went into battle directly from the peace garrisons, they had good mainteance. I made a pad and finally dusted the model lightly.

Milan: I recently built an A9 from the Plastic Soldier Company in 1/72 scale. I sure wish I had seen yours before I built mine. That will teach me not to completely scroll down the page.

Excellent work, on a not to often seen, but important piece of British Armor. I guess I will have to be on the lookout for this kit. I finished my Academy Panzer III, and while it is not nearly as good as yours, I think it turned out well.

Thank you for your comment. It is good, you finished your model of the Pz.Kpfw III from Academy Kit. I hope, model made by you is nicely built.

It turned out quite well considering that painting Afrika Korps subjects has always been challenging for me. I am much better when the color is any shade of green. My deficiencies notwithstanding, the Academy kit is splendid. The link and length tracks were a non-problem. Looks like Academy have plans for several more versions of the Panzer III just judging from the unused parts in the Trop version. I sure hope so anyway.
