Tamiya 1/35 Cromwell in Polish service


Recommended Posts

Another fun build. Practically fell together. Gear is from the spares box. Figures are converted Dragon British Infantry with headsets from somewhere (?) as well as the Bren. Painted rattle can with ink pin wash and colored pencil highlights. Base is wood from Michaels painted with a textured spray and felt pads on bottom. It was suggested I add rope tie downs on back that I plan to add and after looking at the pics, the front chain needs a little work.

Very nice work. Great looking tank. I agree, some rope will help with the stowage. Look for silk thread used for jewelry. It doesn't have the fuzz problems most thread does. You can find it at big box craft stores like Hobby Lobby.

Very good Cromwell! Clean build. I agree with Bryan that silk thread works great for tie-down rope. You can get a lifetime supply from a craft store for a couple bucks. I have also used unwaxed dental floss colored with a brown Sharpie....
