Nice job Robert ! Like the comment, "the engine has 23 parts, half of the Simca total". Gosh, that's a lot of detail in an inch !
Thanks for sharing your hard work with us.

Ola Guys

Thanks a lot for the kind words and compliments.

@ Darren
Thanks for putting it online. You have done a great job on it.

@ Tom
The detail over the whole kit is stunning but that little engine is a miniature kit on it's own.

A great review! It looks like Bronco measured up a topolino from a museum in Connecticut.

Ola Guys

Again thanks for the kind words. Really appreciated.

@ Dan
Could very well be allthough there are still a lot of the old Topolino's around. I think a good example should not be hard to find.

@ Alan
I can absolutely recommend this little kit. It is awesome.

@ Thanks Kurt for the kind words.

Robert, the topolino at the museum is exactly like Bronco's first topolino. Dan

Ok. Did not know that. Is that the desert topolino you are talking about?
