For anyone with modeling experience the kit itself is not that hard. Christian does supply instructions, but they are very limited, and the pictures in the instructions are not that great. Just take your time, measure and fit twice, glue once. 

What is hard is finding all of the extra hardware you need to finish the suspension, the idler wheel, the gun mount, the turret rotation and all of the detail parts. For the most part, there is no instructions for how to install them, or what parts you need. I think I've been to home hardware about 50 times already lol. I still can't find the right sized set screw for the main driving wheel for example. 

However, Christian is now selling suspension bolts, axel screws and ball bearings. That's what I'm waiting on now.

Have you tried Fastenal for the set screws? If you know the size [diameter and length]  I may just have some or be able to get them for you.

I did finally get the wheels on and the suspension working. But I'm still a long way from being finished. Hopefully by the spring I'll have a running model :-)

I have had this kit for along time, but it was intimidating to me.   I bought a a Heng Long T-34 Hull to use to ease in construction, and am only planning on building the top section.

Great job.  Have you got an update with some pictures.

This kit was sold to Tom. Not sure if he has any updates. 
It's a fun kit, just dive in and really study the instructions. If you have any questions, Christian usually is quick to respond with helpful advice.

I ordered the sprockets for my Cromwell yesterday, so I will finally be starting mine after a few years of it laying in the box.!!
