The tank riders look great on the Cromwell. Is the commander also a HAT figure?

He sure is. A couple are provided with the tank riders!

That's awesome! Much better than my Cromwell commander (who was a converted DAK officer with a putty beret!). Excellent result on that build.

Thanks people :thumb:
As the Cromwell has left the bench I thought I'd have a crack at this one:

Although I will be using this kit, again from SandS Models, to make a Bergepanzer IV:

An hour or so and I had this:

Had to stop as dinner was called and all play came to a halt :wink:

The Panzer IV is a very nice tank. I didn't see the ARV version yet, so I'll be watching for your progress, Corricon!. :thumb:
Those small wheels are a pest to paint, but look so good!

Same problem here, and always in the exact moment I'm gluing something! :lol:
