Cromwells
« on: November 28, 2022, 11:46:25 PM »



Here's a troop of 1:100 (15mm) Cromwells, the standard British-made medium tank of the British army after D-Day (though they were outnumbered in British service by the American-made M4 Sherman). By the time they went into active service, they'd had their original 6 pounders reamed out to take the same 75mm shell as the M4, which gave it considerably inferior anti-tank performance but a much better infantry support weapon.

These models were printed some time ago in PLA+ on my Ender 3 FDM printer. The design is from the excellent Mr. Bergman again, and about all I've done to it is add some nubbins around the edges of the tracks to suggest some link detail.

Compared with tanks like the Panther, Tiger II or T-34, the Cromwell looks quite archaic with its boxy shape and prominent rivets, but I think that's why I like it so much.
