ICM 1/72 OV-10A Bronco (72185)

This review will tell you more about ICM 1/72 OV-10A Bronco (72185). There is no mistake in the scale in the title - model comes as smaller copy of the nice kit from the famous manufacturer. I know that some modelers were actually waiting for such kit as they didn't have enough space for big build. Moreover, ICM promised to keep all the key features as well as generous standard package. That's what we are going to take a closer look together. Note that parts count equals to 261 and wingspan will be 170mm. Let's open all the parts and check them.
By the way, here you can read review with bigger brother of this model.

Watch this video where I show all parts even closer.

First frame carries fuselage halves as well as one of the sponsons. Overall it is the same parts division as what we saw in the bigger scale release.

Inside you will find some cockpit features and guiding elements. Note that nose section is still molded in, and you will have to be careful while getting everything together.

Just like the bigger kit, this one includes various armament types. Wing mechanization is also separate, even though assembly manual doesn't suggest any extra positions.

Main wing should be glued out of three panels. External features look nice and include recessed panel lines and rivets.

Whole design looks as good as bigger release. ICM added guiding elements in all important spots.

Clear frame is packed into separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks great, and there is masking template in the assembly manual.

Decals sheet carries all necessary symbols for several markings. Overall quality looks great. You can see options on the photo below.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. I show all pages in the video-review.

Small Bronco should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is as good as the previous bigger releases, so it is just a matter of careful assembly. Moreover, aftermarket brands for sure will release some upgrade sets which should add even more features. Even though standard manual doesn't show open cockpit, PE parts still will be noticeable once installed. :)
