A 27 Cruiser Mk. VIII "Cromwell"
About this creation
In 1942 the UK made a new type of tank: a medium tank which has a great gun, combined with great mobility. The result was the A 27 Cruiser Mk. VIII, or better known as the Cromwell, named after the British soldier Oliver Cromwell.

The result of the idea for the Cromwell works perfectly in the game (World of Tanks), too! The 76-mm Vickers gun has a great reload and does relatively much damage but the 570 HP Rolls-Royce Meteor Engine ends the row. The Cromwell is an awesome tank for a dynamic playstyle. Use your speed for good though, because the armor is thin.

So that was the explaination! Welcome to a new sort of build from me after a while: a tank! I chose the Cromwell because when studying it it doesn't looked impossible in LEGO®, so I did it.
Now I did not do it alone: the rendered main pic, and the tracks (because I didn't knew how to do that :P) are made by Alex Sonny, many thanks Alex!
The turret and hull design are mine.
Now all of you tank nerds say "you forgot this little detail", etc etc, it's my first tank. I know it's not 100% perfect but I gave it a try, and I hope you like it!
Enough chit chat, let's move through some pictures.


The rear. The exhausts of the Cromwell end in a grille, shaped like a BBQ-grille. No idea where it's good for, but it looks fun!

Right hand side of the turret, while making a SNOT logo on the left hand side, this side has a spotlight. The turret was a complex design, but I like how it turned out eventually.

The 76-mm Vickers gun. Bit of a basic gun, but you know! It's my first try... And there's this little machine gun coming out of the front ;)

The turret can turn 360 degrees. Just by using a simple 2x2 turn table. Yay for simple pieces!

So that's it! I hope you like it and give feedback!

Quoting killswitch95 [DEMON] while no its not 100% perfect as you said, as long as you made it, while at the same time making it as though it were a kit, to keep strength for playablity, thats all that matters. thats why i posted my rainbow E-100 first, because i wanted to make sure that it could take abuse, lego hits... nerf gun hits... airsoft BB hits... Steel BB hits... and finally (and im not lying) a 22 caliber hit... im rough on my legos, so if i post something on here, you best believe ive worked out all the strength math, and have tested it in the field before i offer it up to fellow MOCers.... as long as your cromwells built tough, thats all that matters :)
Thanks Killswitch! Sounds like a real E 100; which is good ;) The tracks were made by Alex Sonny, so I guess they're good :)
Quoting Jerry Temple Is this a Cromwell I or Cromwell VII? It's actually pretty easy for me to kill a Cromwell I in an Alecto, provided he doesn't have any medium or TD buddies with him. At least, that's on the Xbox version.
Thanks Jerry! For so far I know (atleast in WoT) This is THE Cromwell, the A27. The A34 Comet is the "new" Cromwell. Maybe you're confused with the Churchills? World of Tanks has the Churchill I and VII, which means Alecto's can kill them. The Churchills are well armored, but I can see Alecto's penetrating them. Flanking it seems very easy in an Alecto vs a single Churchill :) The Cromwell hasn't got any armor whatsoever, nor have the Comet, Centurions, and FV4202. Shoot them wherever you like :)

Quoting Sven Jagdmann I'm not a big fan of war machinery like tanks, but yours is a very nice model of it my friend. Which software did you use for the main pic?
Sorry for the late reply! Thanks a lot! And the software for the main pic is the LDD to POVray converter, a HR LDD screenshot renderer. I did not render it by myself, though.

Quoting Claw Paradox I as going to make that! great job. By the way, I think you meant 7.62mm machine gun, not 76mm machine gun. Or were you referring to the 75mm main gun? either way, it's awesome.
After some quick inspection it indeed turns out to be a 75 mm gun. Thanks for pointing out.

@Karol: Thank you very much! @Dylan: Thanks! I own the Cromwell in WoT, it's very fun to play but actually the mobility is it's great feature. The gun is the top gun of the Churchill I and it can even easily penetrate tier 8 armor but it doesn't do a lot of damage... @James: Thank you! Actually I think the turret is my favorite part too!

I like it! The tan colouration is great, and the turret turned out well. I like the little flag on the turret! Keep it up!

@Starscream: Thanks! Unexpected could be, it's because of my recent obsession of World of Tanks ;) @Joao: Thank you very much! @Dr. Monster: Thank you! @Senator: Haha, thanks! @Nick: I've never done this ;) thank you! @4571 police: I was a bit active in groups and comments here and there but I wasn't in full build mode... @Alex: Thanks! I have a half-Leaf prototype somewhere, but due to the styling and LEGO®'s fault the wheels are too small and I can't figure out a way to add opening front and rear doors in the small wheel base. After some experimenting it could be cool, because I like how it's now! ;)
