Well, this is one you could have knocked me over with a feather. A few weeks ago, my friend Gil sent me a screenshot of Revell’s new releases for 2016, and lo-and-behold, there in full color was a 1966-1977 Ford Bronco. So what’s the big deal? Many of you may know of, or heard of, my pet project that started back in 2002. I bought two masters to make a full cab and half cab 1966-1977 Resin Bronco, but for some reason I won’t, or can’t get into, the masters were never delivered to me for over 13 years. I know, I’m patient, right? I finally got the full cab Resin Bronco going, and sold them on eBay and another site.
So, when I saw the post/pic of the Revell Bronco, I was floored. Yes, there goes my coffee money, but so what!!!! It’s a great kit. I just opened it up today, and started painting it already. So far, it’s incredible. You do have to be careful when sanding everything on the body, as the lines, molds, details are so fine and crisp, you may remove something you don’t want to. I’ll post more pics along the way.
Quick Note: When you start this, I would recommend first washing the body, Dawn dish soap, Simple Green, etc, and then after it has dried, spray on a couple of light coats of Tamiya Light Grey Primer BEFORE you do any sanding to the body. You will see more clearly all the fine details. You can glue on the windshield post first, using the hardtop as a guide before you primer it, but you don’t have to.
