Here are some pictures of a Cromwell I fabbed up using the hull off of a T-34 and the top have of Christians Cromwell kit.  I had to center the middle wheel on each side and I modded the T-34 wheels with some home cast inserts.

I have very seriously considering buying the kit from Ludwig, but I have concerns with the lower chassis. This basically solves all the worries, and you can even use a Taigen metal lower T34 if you so choose. Really brilliant stuff Dan.

You have to cut out the center suspension mount and move it equidistant to the other wheels, so I would suggest you stick with a Heng Long hull.  I fashioned a needle point to my soldering iron and I was able to easily remove the center suspension assembly and move it forward. 

This plus a little work around the rear end and the T-34 hull is a natural fit for this kit.

I would be hard pressed to sell this.  Much effort and uniqueness mean this a keeper for me.  Sorry guys, but thank you for the nice comments.

However for a project base tank this is a nice kit, and I would recommend it.  I did have to do a lot of custom resin castings to finish it off as well though so prepare to be resourceful.  Probably the most work I have ever put into a tank
