Kit Preview : 1/76 Cromwell CV-33/35 Tankette
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
These 5 tankettes are tiny. They should be OK when painted even though the details are not as crisp as on other Cromwell models. The surface is not completely smooth and the rear grilles are uneven.The guns are ill defined and better replaced with plastic rod.
