British A.27 Cromwell VII

World Tanks Depot 1:87 Scale Vehicle Review

British A.27 Cromwell VII, 1:87 H0 Model World Tanks Depot 47

World Tanks Depot's 1:87 scale A.27M Cromwell VII painted middle stone. The vehicle carries the yellow triangle markings of 5th Troop, A Squadron, of the second regiment of an armoured brigade, but there are no other tac signs or markings to identify the division it belongs to. Wargamers may want to repaint the model deep bronze green to build armoured regiments for campaigns in northwest Europe. Each Cromwell tank troop was made up of three Cromwell tanks, and one A.30 Challenger or Sherman Firefly tank mounting the more powerful 17 pdr gun. Unfortunately, neither the Challenger nor the Firefly are available in this scale yet.

Evaluation

Good choice of subject, the Cromwell tank is unique in this scale.

The vehicle is sold fully assembled and painted.

Compatible with other HO scale vehicles and miniatures available from Märklin, ROCO, Faller, Pola, Preiser, and Noch.

The Cromwell should have been painted in the 1945 deep bronze green camouflage colour used in northwest Europe.

World Tanks Depot's Cromwell cruiser tank is a valuable model for collectors, diorama builders, and wargamers.
