SdKfz 6 Front Axle and Spring Assembly

Because Terry said so

This item is part of our “Because Terry said so” series. To put it simply, when our friend, Terry Ashley, of the Perth Military Modeling Site, writes a review of a kit in which he suggests a kit part needs to be corrected — such as here — we are going to try to provide you with that correction — ‘because Terry said so.’

This item corrects several mistakes in the Bronco kit, first mentioned by Terry here. But then we went the extra mile and added additional details, as well as made it so you can position the front wheels of your model — something the original kit parts do not allow.

Designed for kit(s):

This item directly replaces the kit parts in Bronco Kit(s) 35038, 35041 and 35043
