Cromwell Models have just sent us details of a New, 1/72nd scale release of one of Post-War Europe's more 'ad-hoc' designs.
The new model is a FULL, Resin kit of the French ARL 44 in 1/72nd scale.

No, I hadn't heard of it either! However, thanks to the 'miracle' of Google, some interesting details were quickly found on it:

The ARL 44 was a Post-War vehicle of which only 60 examples were built. Weighing in at an impressive 50 tons, the vehicle was armed with a modified 90mm French Naval gun. One look at it reminds one of another, better known, vehicle - the Char B whose tracks were used on the ARL 44.

By 1953, the vehicle had ben withdrawn from service (replaced by MBTs such as the M47) and scrapped.

An interesting subject nevertheless with an impressive mixture of Pre & Post War design.

Our thanks to Cromwell Models for the Update!

Actually it is normal for Cromwell - just do a search for "Gordon Brown" and "Cormwell" e.g. on Missing-Lynx forums... Excellent quality of products, very fast charging of credit cards and then very poor service... It's a pitty, as I would like to buy some of his products, but I'm just not going to risk becoming a member of ever growing club of pissed off Cromwell customers...

Same here Pawel. I've got 4 of his 1/35th kits on my wishlist but until I'm happy that I can order them with confidence that they'll actually turn up I'm spending my cash elsewhere!
