Kit Preview : 1/76 Cromwell Combat Ready Panzer III Ausf. A

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
This kit looks beautiful. The tracks have perfect sagging and the details are finely molded. Even the 3 MG34 stubs are perfect for the scale. The gun is is weak, the 37mm from MMS has a better representation of the tapered shape.
