Kit Preview : 1/76 Cromwell Combat Ready Humber MkIV Armoured 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 vehicle
More information at Wikipedia. Here is a photo walkaround.

About the kit
Two pieces, vehicle and turret. It matches the Matchbox model in size, which is good. The side mirrors are missing and perhaps the antenna stub. I think it is based on the Matchbox model as they both sit low. There should be a larger gap between the wheels and the mudguards. Look at the photos at the link mentioned above. Other than that it looks great.
