British 17/25pdr Anti-Tank Gun "Pheasant"
Bronco Models 1:35 Scale Kit No. CB-35071
Kit Preview by Terry Ashley
Following on from their previous kit of the 17pdr Anti-tank Gun Mk.I (kit #CB-35024) Bronco Models have now released this kit of the 17/25pdr Anti-Tank Gun "Pheasant". It uses some of the gun parts and ammo from the previous kit along with newly tooled 25pdr carriage parts to make up the "Pheasant" just like the real thing.
The kit has 233 parts in light beige plastic plus another, 73 etched brass parts, a short length of twine plus the usual decal sheet and instructions. The standard of moulding is excellent with just the odd bit of fine flash here and there and virtually no pin marks in places that will be seen after assembly. The moulding seams are very fine on most parts making for easy cleanup as well as the usual plastic nodes used to keep pin marks on the parts to a minimum with the etched parts cleanly done with engraved bending lines and embossing on some parts.
