Bronco Hotchkiss H39

Hi everyone,

Since I married three weeks ago and just came back from honeymoon I haven't had much time to publish new posts this last month... I apologize for this!!!! But... now I'm back and motivated to publish updates more regularily. Hereunder you will find some pics of my new project: Bronco's H39. Everything is built straight from the box except the handle of the shovel, some tool clamps and some grabs that are scratchbuilt. The tracks are also the ones that are provided with the kit, these are link by link tracks. I read on many forums that they aren't that good ... I think they are just OK but... be prepared... it will take you a long (and perhaps boring) time to build them and to give them a bit of sagging...
For this project I recommand the following reference book: Focus n°5 H39 - Editions du Barbotin

PS: the other project on the bench is Plus Model's Morris CDSW light breakdown truck, more info and pics will be published soon...

Enjoy the pics!











Happy modelling!

  1. Bravo Thierry ! Since you're writing in English, I might as well answer in English! Very good job! I've always liked Bronco for their fine models and this one is fine indeed. You've built it properly and I hope you'll have fun painting it as well! Go on like this!

    1. Yessssssss honeymoon was great (too bad we're already back... at work...).
      Actually I've already started the painting of the interior of the tank as well as the lower hull with the tracks. I think I'll post some pics (better ones than these)this week end!
      THX for passing by Alex!

    1. We zijn naar Meloneras / Maspalomas in Gran Canaria (Canarische Eilanden)geweest. Gewoon superzalig, 33 graden, water perfect, lekker gegeten (en vrij veel gedonken...), veel interessante dingen bezocht en mensen waren daar heel aardig.
      Bedankt om langs te komen!

  4. Yo Tish,

    Leuk om horen dat je weer aan het bouwen bent.

    Leuke kit trouwens, deze staat ook nog ergens op mijn verlanglijstje. Ben benieuwd naar de verfjas.

  5. Hey Nico! Leuk dat je meevogt! De kit is vrij makkelijk om te bouwen. Enkel de ketens (link by link tracks) zijn een beetje lastig omdat ze veel tijd in beslag nemen ... één avond per kant!!!!
    Foto's van het verven zullen binnenkort gepubliceerd worden. Stay tuned ; )

    Ga je soms volgende week einde naar Plastic & Steel in Affligem?
