Hi Bill,

Thanks. Plenty of these got captured and 'liberated' , so an Allied option is quite possible .

Hey Al,
Nice detailed review, thanks for the link.
I picked up Bronco's other Olympia Light Saloon Coach Model 1937 a few months ago.
Nice to see the Cabriolet version being produced, staff cars in plastic have been rare as hen's teeth until lately.
I just wish Bronco would update their website once in a while !
Cheers for the review

Alan I know little or nothing about this vehicle, but the parts look very well rendered. I do see an easy improvement they could make, which is to supply weapons with hollowed barrel ends.

Hi John,

It's good to see some more wheeled vehicles coming along, very useable. Now we just have to wait until that first British Truck or Staff Car appear lol,lol.

The recent acnnnouncement of the Tamiya new tooled Tilly is most welcome .

The Olympia has good potential both as a German and a Civilian vehicle..
