Kit Preview : 1/76 Cromwell Combat Ready M3A1 White Scout Car

About the manufacturer
Cromwell now focuses on 1/76 and 1/72 Combat ready models which combine a reduced count of parts and a good level of detail. Older kit type models are still available, mostly on Ebay. I find Cromwell castings to be among the best on the market.

About the kit
This is a beautiful model. The part count is quite high for a ready-made kit. There are the 3 guns with their mounts, two seats, a radio, the steering wheel, the windshield and its armored protection, what seems to be an antenna mount and the front section of the skate rail. I haven't checked the dimensions for accuracy but other than that it is almost perfect.
