Darren, I wonder if you might perhaps talk a little bit more about the partly folded cloth top you mention in the review? I see the molding for the top up and the top down but cannot identify any parts for a intermediate folded top. This would be a very interesting accessory for Bronco to add!

Well done review of a very highly engineered and detailed model kit. Kudos to Bronco!

Very nice review Darren!

I happen to have this kit on my workbench (in sub-assembly stage). Upon originally opening the box, the kit looked very daunting — all of those tiny plastic parts! And the suspension nearly scared the bejesus out of me! Ultimately, this became a very satisfying build as the sprues became closer to being stripped clean and all dry-fitting went very nicely.

This is a very high quality offering from Bronco, indeed!

I think perhaps this is one time where the box art in no way does the model proper justice.
