As a continuation of previous papers in a series devoted to the computation of stellar structure and evolution models we present a grid specifically obtained for detailed studies of the stellar content of the Small Magellanic Cloud. The initial metal content has thus been adopted to be Z = 0.004 while the hydrogen content varies from 0.65 to 0.80 leaving as an intermediate value that given by standard laws of enrichment, X = 0.744. Interpolation for different environment is therefore possible with these new models. Other input physics parameters, e.g. convective overshooting, mixing-length, opacities or nuclear reaction rates, have been adopted to be homogeneous with the previously published models in order to facilitate comparative studies.

Key words: binaries: eclipsing -- stars: evolution; interiors; fundamental parameters -- Magellanic Clouds
