Rubicon Models have unveiled their project of the month, and it's a stalwart of British military history.

The A34 Comet is a British cruiser tank, modified from the Cromwell tank, which first took to the battlefield towards the end of World War II.

The tank was designed with several improvements to the Cromwell design, not least the 77mm HV gun, mounted at a new lower profile and part-cast turret, all of which made the tank a fearsome force against the German enemy, including the Panther and the Tiger tanks.

The A34 Comet saw service until 1958, and was widely regarded as one of the best tanks serving in WWII. Indeed, by the end of the conflict, 1,186 A34 Comets had been produced.

1958 was not the end of the A34 comet, however, and some tanks were sold to other countries, where they continued to operate into the 1980s.

Now Rubicon Models have unveiled the 3D drawings of their upcoming miniature tribute to this triumph of British engineering. Personally, I think the design looks incredibly realistic, and does a great job in representing such an important part of WWII history.

There's no hint from Rubicon Models as to when the final product will be delivered but, for now, you can check out the designs in more detail on Facebook.

What do you think of this design? Let us know below!

"A triumph of British engineering!"
