Currently most picture of the new Airfix 1:76th scale Cromwell tank is of the 3D rendering. I was lucky enough today to get to see the actual pre-production model kit and sprues. The model can either be made with the wading gear (that was used on D-Day) or as it was used later on in the Normandy campaign without.
The sprues show a fair few parts, and unlike some of the new wargaming models that have come out recently, this is a model kit first with lots of parts.
Another view (this time from the top) of the Cromwell pre-production models.
Looks like a very nice plastic kit and for those who play 20mm, a welcome addition that has long been missing from the range.
