Bronco Model has just recently released the artwork and CAD drawings for their upcoming 1/35 M24 Chaffee. For many years, modellers have been craving a new tooled M24 to replace the long in the tooth Italeri kit. If the CAD drawing from Bronco are any indicator, it looks like that craving will be answered.
What I find interesting about this release is that Bronco is including a set of Dragon U.S. tanker figures. Why is it interesting? Well for several years now, Dragon's little propaganda site has been openly hostile towards Bronco releases. Well, that matters little now as we'll soon have a new M24!!
I haven't bought any new kits for quite sometime as I have a decent stash and very little time to work on them. Therefore, I can't really justify the expenditure. However, when this kit comes out, I will make an exception as I too have been waiting for a new M24. It'll be fun to check it out compared to the 2 M24's that are here in the SF Bay area.
Thanks to Rubin at Bronco Model for the artwork files.
BTW, look for a sale on CD #19 Toadman's Light Tank M24 Chaffee Photo Detail CD sometime in the next couple of days!!
