Kit Preview : 1/76 Cromwell Combat Ready Marder II
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
Not a lot to say. It is an old cast so the extra resin under the hull needs to be machined out. It is an easy build obviously but there is ample room for detailing the open compartment and the gun. I think I would rather use an extra gun from Matchbox, Fujimi or Airfix as the one provided is not very detailed.
