Cromwell Mk VII Conversion (Airfix)

One of the problems recognised once the Cromwell had entered service was the difficulty for the driver to exit the tank if the turret was in the wrong position.  A couple of modifications were tried but, with the introduction of the F type hull, his hatch was remade to open to the side, like that of the co-driver. Stowage was re-arranged, reducing the length of the right-hand long box and mounting boxes on the side of the turret. Most, if not all, of the F-hulled Cromwells had the vision slot cupola fitted.The type was introduced through the autumn of 1944 and they served through the end of the war, and on into the 1950s. 
    This kit  provides resin and etched brass parts to convert Airfix’s 1/76 Cromwell tank.  It includes a 95mm CS Howitzer as an alternative main gun, to make the Cromwell Mk VIII.  
    For reference, it is worth looking for the Polish book on the subject, ‘Cromwell’, by Janusz Ledwoch (publ. Wydawnictwo Militaria, 2012.
(Note that the Revell kit is illustrated but that the part breakdown is identical)
