The Crusader was an obsolete mid-war tank design that was still kicking around in the late war as an SP AA vehicle. I got one of the Rubicon Crusader kits for my late war Polish army.
You can’t really field a late war Motor Platoon without their main ride: the M5 half track. There are a couple of plastic kits out there for the very similar M3 half track, but for my Polish 1st Armoured I decided to get the resin kit of an actual M5 from Warlord.
I’m a big fan of the Rubicon plastic kits, and their mid- and late-war Stuart kit fills a gap in my Allied collection. The same vehicle can be used as a gun-armed Stuart for Polish 1st Armoured in ’44-’45 and as a Recce Stuart for NZ 2nd Division in Italy ’43-’45.
I recently added one of Warlord/Italeri’s Cromwell tanks to my armour stable, but actually had another sitting on my shelf. When I came across a nifty little conversion kit from S and S Models that can turn it into the Close Support version armed with a 95mm howitzer, I knew what I had to do!
