Kit Preview : 1/76 Cromwell Combat Ready T-26 1933 Model (Type B) and 1939 Model (Type S)(

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 two models are similar, as expected. The B type, in beige resin, is an earlier casting with a solid underside. The S type is in the gray resin now used by Cromwell. The quality of the castings is exactly the same. Th B type's driver slot should be a slot like for the S type not as represented.
