Note: A brief comparison with the Tamiya Simca 5 (kit #35231) will be included here as they are
basically the same, the Simca 5 being a licenced version of the Fiat 500 produced in France.
There are some differences but many of the major components are the same for both.
The Bronco parts are in beige plastic and the Tamiya parts in grey plastic.

Basic assembly completed for the civilian configuration as per marking option 1 and 3 in the Bronco kit,
the Bronco kit allows you to position the engine compartment hood in the open position to display the engine if you wish.
The kit offers alternate bumber bars that can be fitted if required?
Note: The Topolino is only fitted with the single windscreen wiper while the Simca 5 has the two wipers.

Assembly of the roof Jerry can racks in situ, the lower etched strips need to be added to the roof first and then the top rack frame (part C3)
the Jerry cans were also glued to the etched strips to add rigidity to the assembly as it was rather flimsy with just the etched strips and rack.
Bronco Models
The etched retaining straps can be added to the racks.
