Kit Preview : 1/76 Cromwell Combat Ready 3.7cm MoebelWagen

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 breathtaking kit. I did not expect a brass barrel, which is infinitely superior to any resin, plastic or white metal representation. The mesh receovery net is also very fine, certainly the best I've seen in any material. There are many parts for a ready made kit and it will be a challenge to get them all in place without instructions.
