I have the honour of being the very first to get my hands on this new resin set from Verlinden productions and do a review of this set.This engine set and a soon to be released, in the next week or so, interior set are both intended to be used on the new Bronco M24 kit.
You can find the review of this set, and the new Bronco kit at the links below. I can't wait to build this one up.....and maybe as a wreck !!

I have also received a complete interior for the Acadamy M113........very cool. My list of future builds just got longer.

Cheers

Verlinden previously had an engine compartment for the Italeri kit. Is this an all new set?

Here's Terry's review of the previous set. http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/r ... /v1832.htm

Parts breakdown is exactly the same. Probably tweaked a little bit for the differences in the kits.

When did this come about???? Glad to see they updated the engine compartment for the Bronco kit and very happy to an interior for a Chaffee finally.
Well there goes my plans to do an interior for the kit.

I do believe the engine comp is a re-tool to fit the new Bronco kit and does utilize existing parts.

The Interior will be available in the next week and will work with the Eng comp. I was told that they share the same firewall.
I hope to get the interior in the next batch of review items some time soon, and maybe the first to get to review it. Now I need to get the Bronco kit and go to town with these sets.

Thanks for checking out the reviews, and keep checking in on my forum as I will post all new items there first.

Cheers
Rob
