9 – Testors OV-10A Bronco

I found one of my favourite airplanes and in 48th scale there aren't many options on it.
A really fun kit but very little detail so had to create my own, mostly in the cockpit, I added ejector levers, wiring, fuselage ribbing, some boxes, wiring on the landing gear and some other details here and there.

I chose the US Army scheme as I liked the colours the most, and had a lot of fun painting it up, the references I found most of them had very little weathering so I kept it quite clean.

A really fun build of a plane I love, needed some detail added but overall I loved this kit.

  1. This is an exceptional build, Anthony!
    You did a great job on this sweet, but old, basic kit, love all the add-ons!

  2. Anthony, you've really dressed this kit up well! It presents much better than what's in the box, and I think your chosen scheme helps a lot too. Looks great!

  3. Very nice build, Anthony @anthonyricco
    Cockpit additions are great and with this canopy you still have a good visibility on that.

  4. I really like the Bronco. One of my first two builds (back in 3rd grade) was a Bronco in 1/48 (don't remember the kit brand). You made a great choice on the scheme, and it's finished nicely!

  5. There was actually a Bronco that showed up at EAA this year but it didn't fly in any of the displays. Maybe next year. Great job on yours!

  6. Great result from an old and fairly basic kit.

  7. Great job on a classic!

  8. I remember building that kit! Was one of my favorite builds as a kid.
