Bronco Model have continued to surprise many with their releases in 1/35th scale - a Comet, the Staghound A/C, and several others have caused real surprise in the modeling world. However, this latest announcement is possibly the most surprising of all.
CB35015 - Land-Wasser-Schlepper (Mid-production) will be the first (styrene) kit of this highly-unusual German Amphibian.

In this photo-report, Bronco Model have kindly sent us images of the TEST model - obviously, with the final production kit there will be details improved/changed, however, saying that, this is a good indicator as to what to expect when the kit hits the shelves.

My thanks, to Bronco Model for supplying the images.

Although my forte isn't German Tracked Vehicles, it has a quaint nautical appearance, and I just may convince myself to pick one up.

Since I got into modelling about 6 years ago, the 2 models most talked about and sought after ... a modernised American halftrack and the LWS. We got the halftrack .... and frankly Im quite saddened by how little of these are being built and shown, compared to the years of begging, and ranting about it at every possible opportunity. Hopefully the LWS fares better.

This is good news I remember LWS being rather expensive and hard to get a hold of. I'm glade to see it hit the mainstream market. I will be getting one for sure! Now only if someone will come out with a s.WS with a 3.7 Flak or "UHU" set up..... I will then have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming!

I’ll have to get one to put with my Panzerfahre [ PzF ].. This one is scratch built.. Wish their was a kit of it..

I wish there was a course like a community course on scratch building I would sign up in a heart beat to learn how to do this stuff. Tried it once and got completely lost and discouraged did by some books on it though and have been slowly building up my courage to try again.

I too have wanted this model ever since I saw Tony Greenland's version (which was a whole month ago). I love these crazy vehicles that most people have never even seen, and are never given the treatment they deserve in modelling circles. Now to think of the dio possibilities...
