I assume the MSRP of $54.98 is a misprint or a joke?

Nice review Randy! Pretty steep price, however, for a stand alone and small artillery piece. Even Dragon's sFH 18 can be had for between $30 and $40. Don't know how they expect to sell many of them at that price...

Just ordered one from Lucky Model for just $17.98 + 3.99 shipping.

Looking forward to getting it and working on it.

Thanks again for bringing this kit out to our attention, Randy. Had no idea Bronco did one of these and it's nice to know there's one out there as I was just reading something about this weapon yesterday. Timely review indeed as I'm a sucker for artillery and I just had to add this one to the collection!

Typo yes, sorry about that.....MSRP $34.98

And as Rob has found, can be had for a pretty decent price.
Thanks for the review, Randy

Thanks guys for catching my mistake!! I don't know why I hit the 5 instead of the 3. I hope I didn't give anyone sticker shock!! Once again sorry for the mistake and thanks James for correcting it for me.

That is what I get for trying to be quick with my typing I guess. I was trying for a quick turn around on this item so it could get posted and I made a few mistakes. Now I know to take a little longer when I do my proof reading.

Glad that my review was of some help to you Rob. Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks again everyone,

HARV
