| Description

The Cromwell, officially named Cruiser Tank MkVIII, was one of the most successful British tanks of the Second World War.  Named after the English Civil War leader, Oliver Cromwell, the tank proved to be an adept and rugged fighting machine and served until the end of the War.  While out-gunned and out-armoured by German tanks, the Cromwell managed to hold its own through better manoeuvrability, due to its relatively small size, and reliability in combat, something sorely lacking in German armour.

Paint Scheme - Cromwell MkIV, 5th Royal Horse Artillery, 7th Armoured Division, British Army, Europe, 1944/45

Airfix Starter Sets are ideal for beginners.  Each Small Starter Set includes glue, brush and four acrylic paints - all that is needed to complete a fabulous first kit!

Incredible Kit!!

This kit opened up new possibilities for me. For a long time I had tried to avoid tank model kits due to past attempts being thwarted early in the process by poor quality molding and ill fitting parts. But this kit was a lifesaver for me. The quality of the parts is amazing and it was not too hard to fit the parts. I like especially the tank tracks; they quite fun to put on compared to previous rubber tracks! I would recommend this kit to beginner and expert alike. It was a very enjoyable build and I look forward to future kits as good as this one!

Amazing Tank Kit

I bought this expecting it to be poor quality but it was amazing. The level of detail was superb and the overall tank looks fantastic. The only downside was the tracks, I would recomend cutting them so that they could be applied once the entire kit has been made (don't glue the top to the bottom untill the end.) Otherwise you would have to paint the wheels and tires before building. This is an amazing kit I would definitely recomend.
