Nice! You can crash them things a lot quicker than you can build em.
True, this one is a scratch build! Just because they flew over my head in Vietnam! I'm not gonna fly this one, it's gonna hang from the ceiling in my man cave!
Wow John.... what an interesting story behind that plane.
I didn't know a thing about it so I " googled" it....
Neat! Nice build!
I always considered them "close air support"
I had seen them before from a distance.... I knew they were STOL, just thought they were all mainly observation platforms. Never knew them to carry armament.
Actually they have several options in the cargo bay, one option is a recoil less rifle and I think it had a magazine of several rounds. Another option was a rocket pod!
Here's an interesting report on the Bronco, which is also being used to fight ISIS:
I have a Lt. at work whose dad and uncle both flew them in vietnam. Both of them died while flying too. He has a love hate relationship with them. He loves the plane just because he grew up hearing his dad talking about them.
I talked my way into almost everything that flies except phantoms, B-52s, and Broncos! Sure wanted to get in one of those for a hoot!
Adding a few things before I quit:
Looking great! Neat plane for certain.
Thanks, next 4 7.62 machine guns, then a few decals!
