Interesting choice Ian. Lots of Scorpion photos in my Tanks Trucks & Firepower thread, and many more not yet uploaded, so ask if there's anything you need a photo of.

Very nice looking kit Ian, It's small but being an AFV kit you'd still be busy with the number of parts especially the workable tracks.

Cheers,
Richard

Morning Ian,

although generally nice kits I found that the Scorpion was lacking a lot of detail and the engine deck grille slats sloped the wrong way

Oh goody, I've been looking at building a Scorpion for the animal antics GB (straight from the box though probably), so I should get an idea of what to expect by riding along with this.

Worked on these for many years so watching with interest. It's bringing back many fond memories.

Ian, don’t forget that all those holes etched into the brass bins should actually be raised rivet heads

Ian, the extra detail & brass work is looking really good, built one out of the box a couple of years ago, it's a nice little tank to build.
