Here's the kit. It looks like everything made it in one piece. It really was good packaging.

I saw the Promax motors and asiatam low-profiles gears and thought NOOOOO they won't fit!...

...but they're stubby! Nice. Did you go with a Sherman clark?

The pricing is on his site. http://www.ludwigs-hobby-seite.de/

I thought I'd try to fit the motors but I bought them for Tiki anyway. :-)

Yup, it's the Sherman TK22. I thought it would be best for engine sounds, but nothing is really close to the actual sounds of the tank.

First step is finding a good glue/ plastic weld to start putting it together :-)

Yea, I think it's a safe bet. The gun will be close 'enough' Razz

I'd love to see a real Cromwell running up close in person, that V12 meteor (merlin basically) engine is perfect... Very Happy



Panzer 3/4 tracks are nearly perfect for the Cromwell, they are almost identical too. It just looks like they go on backwards!

Ya! The Britsh are coming! cheers

The kit looks nice, but I didn't see a turret ring.
Are you going to use a Heng Long one and motor?

Yup. Christian designed it to use a heng long turret ring. I'll use servos for the elevation and recoil.

I've been busy building away. The kit is really nice, but it isn't all inclusive, so I'm going to have to track down some small screws and other hardware to complete the suspension. I'm also planning to get lots of detail parts like rivets, hatch handles, small bolts and hinges.

Here's where I'm at:

These are the sides of the lower hull. They will have to wait until I figure out the suspension.

Adman's Cromwell build F32B4645-34F8-4937-A3B6-34AA033E421C-2283-00000458A465F105_zpsa437b176

This is the upper hull. The basic structure is complete.

Adman's Cromwell build B045E201-D314-4ACE-92CB-A00DB5685690-2283-00000458F129FBA9_zps6a05d351

This is the underside of the upper hull.

Adman's Cromwell build AFEF2886-5092-493D-AD30-D47D9341CCEF-2283-00000458FCCF775E_zps6c67bdfc

This is the front of the lower hull. I still have to add the hatches and machine gun port.

Adman's Cromwell build 1D99B601-6954-4743-9673-9EFB50AA814A-2283-000004590607332E_zps20f33cb1

Here are the wheels. Rubber still needs to go on.

Here's the drive wheel. Man those bolts took a while lol.

Adman's Cromwell build BE37C187-D03E-4C92-BEF1-138F56AE8ECE-2283-00000458D1C8DC11_zps50bc6e7c

That's it for now. I'll be working on the turret next. I think this project will take a long time :-)

It should take a long time, it's a very accurate kit.

It looks like they took apart a full scale tank and copied it exactly. I like the internal details.

putting those bolts into each drive wheel is nice very very nice until of course you have to tighten them down. Great time to invest in quality thread locker.
Keeps the pics coming adman, this is stellar so far

Finally found some time to start building the turret :-) ill need to figure out some sort of magnet solution for the securing the top.

Hey Adman, maybe you can use these for the large bolt for the turret.

I think I can too. Thanks for the link!

I still have to get most of the hardware to detail and finish putting some parts together.

Do you have a local source of rare earth magnets? Half my tanks' weight is made up of those things.. they work wonders. 

Do you just need to secure hatches and stuff?

Hatches, suspension, gun mounting, rivets... I need hardware for all of that stuff. My hobby shop does have a supply of tiny rare earth magnets that ill probably pick up soon.

Hooray for updates! I finally figured out the Cromwell suspension! It has been keeping me from really getting things moving on this build. No pun intended.

When I got the kit, the swing arms didn't fit on the support braces, the supplied bolts were too big, and it didn't come with any way of securing the springs to the bolts. So, a little shopping around and a lot of shipping time later, I finally have the parts I need to finish this section. Here's how you do it:


Start by drilling out a hole large enough for the wheel mount. (Right hand side of the swing arm)

Adman's Cromwell build IMG_5354_zpsd32458e1



Next drill a smaller hole to fit the suspension bolt, which secures the suspension spring. I used a 2.5x20 bolt.


Adman's Cromwell build IMG_5353_zps89577975


Next, put together the bolt and spring, securing it with a nut and some lock tight.


Adman's Cromwell build IMG_5355_zpsbca3e128



Next, glue/epoxy everything together. If you want a longer bolt, it can be drilled right through the swing arm, but I opted for the epoxy method...or the Ross method :-)

Adman's Cromwell build IMG_5362_zps4819f44b



Do that 10X


Adman's Cromwell build IMG_5359_zps4eb5d5f3


Next, sandwich the suspension arms between the two side plates. I've also attached the support brackets, but I won't glue those down in case I have to make suspension repairs.

Adman's Cromwell build IMG_5368_zps9a552f15



Here are some other angles showing the hidden suspension.


Adman's Cromwell build IMG_5367_zps90d4a396


Adman's Cromwell build IMG_5373_zps13aa69d0


Now I need to secure the second suspension bolt, which attaches to the other end of the spring. Getting there....
