In this in-box review of Bronco Models M1114 Up-Armored HA (Heavy) Tactical Vehicle I will try to show you whats inside the new kit and what was updated from the prior released M1114 in 1/35 scale [CB35092]

Mario thanks for the review, this is a must have for me, kinda attached to this HMMWV. I don't remember who enlightened me about the miss spelled letters on the tires (perhaps Graeme Davidson) but if you use a sharp scalpel you can trim away the "p" to make an "r" and that is why they made the letter p and not x or y.
Regards
Bill

Thanks for the reply, I wished for a "B" instead as it would be easier to turn it to "R" but having built the prior release I don't mind it as much since any kind of weathering will obscure this and for those interested in more accuracy, there are a lot of AM options now.

I remember your scratchbuilt frag kit. I hope to see more of your work as I find it awesome

Hey,

Does anyone know of any aftermarket decal options for this particular variant?

Thanks.

Generally speaking, plastic tires are considered to be a better option than vinyl. If you're considering the model, there are a lot of resin wheel sets out there to suit anyone's taste - lettering, models, bulged etc...
