Construction

The structure is of course strongly reminiscent of COBI models. However, QuanGuan cannot come close to keeping up in terms of quality. Especially with the tiles you need a lot of pressure and you have to turn them again and again until they fit. On the other hand, this of course also gives you enormous stability. Unlike COBI, you don’t build a solid block here. The interior is filled with window frames that give stability to the tiles. The tracks are a clear copy of COBI. Unfortunately, they don’t work as well and keep getting stuck.

The turret is made up of many separately built sections. Extensive use is made of reversing the direction of construction. The turret cover fits snugly rather than right. You have to decide whether you want to press it in the back or in the front. Both at the same time doesn’t seem to work.

Conclusion:

The Cromwell is very rudimentary and reminiscent of the old COBI models. Spartan prints, few details and no interior. You get exactly what you pay for. And the model is very cheap.
