To day I felt the need for a quick build, so I spent a couple of pleasant hours building one of the Armoufast Cromwell tanks, at less than £7 for two tanks they are cheap but basic and very quick to build, just what the lost mojo needed.

Nice work, Splash. I agree, they are great value for money. I built the Shermans a few years ago.

Excellent job! They really are nice little kits, and as you have admirably shown, reasons well to some well applied weathering

Very impressive both the value at that price point but also the build.

I need to find something to refire my mojo!

Nice! Weathering really helps these kits.

Those Armourfast kits are awesome for the mojo for sure. I have the Achilles tank destroyer one and aside from jazzing up the open turret interior they are a quick no fuss no muss sort of build.

Great build. Nice work. I built the Sturmgeshutz (sp?) With Little Greg (his first build) and found it great fun. Excellent Blitz fodder too. Have you tried any of the 'Plastic Soldier company' kits. Very similar but more refined.

All the best.

Excellent build and certainly just the thing for a quick mojo restorer!

Very nice for when you want to paint different Camouflage patterns or quick conversions, but prefer PSC or S-model to Armourfast. Slightly more pricey, (though you get 3 models with PSC), but better detail.

A touch up is needed on that rear wheel; something I always get on my quick builds. Have you thought about some markings for it, such as 7th Armoured Div?
