This is my latest completion a Cromwell Armoured Recovery Vehicle. It utilised the Airfix Cromwell and the SandS Models Cromwell ARV kit, which is normally for the Armour Fast Cromwell, but seems to fit quite well with the Airfix offering. It has been marked as a member of the REME from the 11th Armoured Division:

Another good one.
It would be great to have in-progress pix, particularly the fit of the a/m set to the kit vehicle, so we can learn from that.

jRatz,
There wasn't too much too it really. The hull was built up according to the Airfix instruction sheet and then the white metal parts were added using the pictures from the SandSModels website as the kits come with no instructions.
Here it is without any paint on:

It was just a matter then of giving it a coat of green on the main hull:

and then colouring in all the added parts:

and then adding the unit markings to the front:
