Horsa Glider Wings & Rear Fuselage (Tail Unit) Set

Published: July 14, 2016
Company: Bronco Models

The Kit

Published: September 30, 2015
Company: Tamiya

This kit contains four figures (three enlisted and one officer), and two sprues of small arms and equipment. The kit is made by ICM but packaged with the Tamiya name. The small arms and equipment sprues appear to be the same as those in the ICM Anzac Infantry (1915) kit and include a very nice assortment of extras. Each sprue has four Lee-Enfield Mk III rifles and two Ross Mk III 1910 rifles (… more
