Bronco Models is becoming a real power house of new products and I believe has earned their place as one of the major players. In this news story we get to take a look at the three latest products in the works.
Artillery fans hold onto your seats as Bronco Models announce an Airborne 6pdr with crew, and for the armour fans there is a second rendition of the Valentine already with a Mk III/Mk XI. Lastly the BT7 gets a workable plastic track as an option from Bronco Models.

AB3564 – Soviet BT-7 Fast Tank mod 1937 workable track set.
CB35146 – Infantry Tank Mk III ‘Valentine’ Mk XI (OP)
CB35168 – OQF 6pdr Anti-Tank Mk IV on carriage Mk III (Airborne) with crew

Gents, there was no US Airborne 6 Pdr. The US Airborne forces used the British AB 6 Pdr as this was the ONLY AB 6 Pdr/57mm as Kurt indicates. The US M1 57mm AT Gun was a Licence built modification of the BRITISH Mk II 6 pdr. The Airborne Version is based on the Later Mk IV gun (with Muzzle brake) and a number of British Mk IV 6 pdrs (non AB can be seen in US service in NWE.

I forgot to add my thanks to Bronco for offering us such a significant weapon in Plastic. and one with a Crew. I like where you are going Bronco and if you really feel the need a Hadrian or a Horsa would go down a treat. Al

Personally I'm most excited about the Valentine OP. Been waiting for that a while now. Cheers! Stefan

How about this one used by the 442nd Anti-tank Company during Operation Dragoon? Photo from page 278, First Airborne Task Force, by Michel De Trez. They exchanged the US 57mm guns for the British Airborne guns that could more easily fit into the CG-4 gliders.

I believe you'll find that those aren't M1 57mm guns but QF 6lbers. In other words, they look like British guns because they ARE British guns! KL[/quote] I was aware of that. Al

Goes nicely with the Archer. Now to get a new Mk IX or Mk XI kit and mount the Bishop superstructure to it... Hmmm does Bronco have a sprues service??

Mmm.. Hadrian or Horsa, Gun being loaded.. sounds good. Bronco, hope you are taking notice. Would be big though. Bronco's artillery series has been a constant inspiration, well done.

Godda get this, their 25pdrs & 17pdrs are brilliant. GPM do a Horsa and Waco Hadrian in 1/33 in card... nice kits, but haven't the nerve to do them yet... 3rd Law of Scratchbuilding.... I I blog it, they will come And release it! in 1/35th styrene!

Sensational. I agree with Jon and the 25 pounder is by far one of the best pieces of artillery supplied in styrene. Delicate but superbly moulded ,and the gun crew fit perfectly with very little modifications. The 6 pounder with the crew in action ,just perfect. Thanks Bronco.
