Kit Preview : 1/76 Cromwell Combat Ready M4A2 76

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
The model looks like a Sherman, unlike the stubby MMS Shermans. The running gear is undersize as can be seen in the pictures. As for the Easy 8 the turret is too high and bulky and the gun is better replaced.
