Enough with the speculation please. :709-457:

Our next project will be announced soon enough. I can't say what it is yet, but I will say it's not a twin engine blue aircraft. :hmmm:

 

Focus and repeat after me: "Bronco, Bronco, Bronco"

That's what I like to hear rather than be tempted to appease too many.

looks great for the most part. the second to last shot though has the rudder pedals on the side consoles rather than on the floor.

This is correct for the backseat

Thanks for sharing but we'd need to find more detailed pics to do it properly.

 

Small update. LAU-10/A Zuni rocket pods:

Lots more soon!

 

:cheers:

Please be sure to include 4 of these! we need to be able to do a 20 Zuni load for the Black Ponies. According to many of the Black Pony related websites and books on the subject, 20 Zuni's was the favorite loadout.

Broncos don't sit on their tails.

Broncos rest on their nose.

Is this when Adm. Zumwalt got a ride?

    Personally, I can't wait for each release.  I'm a Bronco fan to start with, and all that detail is just calling my name. Hoping that it's sooner then later. But later is way better then never.

hi there! any news regarding the test shots? ;)

 

It's still being tooled. I'm just as anxious as the rest of you and will be posting pics of the test shots when the time comes.

 

We are currently working on package design and finalizing the decal artwork with AOA Decals.

Instructions won't be completed until we get some test shots to play with to make sure the assembly sequence is best for the modeler, not the guy making the instruction illustrations.

 

Still no word on price or release date. Since we're already mid-November, sadly I think I can guess that it won't be under your Christmas tree.

 

:cheers:

   Having AOA do the decals is a fantastic decision. I've used their excellent decals on a few builds, and bought one of their 1/32 scale Bronco sheets for the Bronco kit. As I've said, I'm in for at least two kits, and will buy every version that comes out.
