ADMITTEDLY THIS isn’t an English Civil War subject, but rather an elegant Dan Taylor Modelworks conversion for Revell’s 1/72 Cromwell Mk.IV cruiser tank.

Courtesy of set C-76122R, six beautifully cast resin components and small photo-etched brass fret backdate the kit to the A24 Cavalier, replacing the engine deck, rear and bow plates, track guards, stowage boxes and main gun. There are clear and concise instructions on how to modify the styrene upper hull in preparation, and photos show how the conversion parts fit. As a bonus, a guide is included to correct the Cromwell’s road wheel spacing to that of a Cavalier, and how to alter the wheels themselves to piercedrim items (although Dan Taylor also produces a specific resin set – C-76087 – to address this):
