  1. Armour modellers of a sensitive disposition should perhaps look away now! Still here? Right. This was a commission build for a friend, intended to represent the upgunned Cromwell depicted in the World of Tanks game. The in-game tank has the option of mounting the Vickers 75mm High Velocity gun. This gun used a 3-inch AA gun cartridge, necked down to take US 75mm ammunition. Historically, there actually was the intention to fit this gun to the Cromwell, but it was discovered rather late that the turret was too small. In what-if world of course, anything is possible. Perhaps the fall of Malta in 1942 puts a serious damper on the progress of the desert campaign. Without the interdiction of supplies to the Afrika Korps, preparations for the Allied offensive in North Africa are seriously hindered, resulting in at least a year's delay to the build up of forces in Egypt. It does however mean that the new Cromwell cruiser can be giving its first taste of action; it proving a worthy opponent to the long barrelled PzIV and the heavy Tigers of the DAK. Anyway, all just an excuse to give the Cromwell a fancy Caunter scheme and a more serious looking shooter. The Tamiya kit was almost flawless as you might expect. The gun is a shortened 17-pounder from RB Model. Added 06/01/16: regards, Jason
