I recently ordered the Bronco Humber Mk IV NON-transparent version but received the transparent version anyway. All the non-transparent parts are included except the turret shell parts.

Does anyone know if the transparent turret will look right if painted? Should I use some Mr. Surfacer 500 on it first?

Sending it back is an option but they will only give me credit not what I ordered.

Thanks

Hey Tom.

A couple suggestions. First, this site requires full names - just a friendly reminder before the forum police swoop in...

I think this forum is pretty much inactive - you might want to re-post in the Allied forum - much more activity/looks there.

I really don't know if what you suggest is easy/hard, as I'm not that up on my Humber variants. Accurate Armour and Sovereign? make earlier Marks in resin....

HTH,

Mike

I have the kit, but really haven't looked closely; if you don't care about the clear feature, I would think a quick shot of primer (Tamiya, Mr. Surfacer 1000 or Vallejo) would roughen up the clear a bit before putting on the base coat of paint.
