This is the Tamiya 35 221-3300 kit in 1/35 scale, of the ‘British Cromwell Cruiser Tank Mk.IV’.
Tank, Cruiser, Cromwell (A27M), and the related Centaur (A27L) tank, were one of the most successful series of cruiser tanks fielded by Britain in the Second World War.
The Cromwell tank, named after the English Civil War leader Oliver Cromwell, was the first tank put into service by the British to combine a dual-purpose gun, high speed from the powerful and reliable Meteor engine, and reasonable armour, all in one balanced package.
Its design formed the basis of the Comet tank.
