Ever one not to resist a challenge - please find my entry.

Yes Gentlemen and Ladies its a:

1:76th Scorpion/Scimitar Tank.

Here we go. First up the box

Next up is the Chill scale of measurement to show the size:

Next - OPEN SESAME - a nice folded short set of instructions:

Image

And underneath a poly bag of shiny bits:

Image

Slicing open the bag we find four sprues of parts and a set of rubber tracks with a unit of measurement for size:

Image

Now considering my painting skills are not on a a par with Rolf Harris thanking god theres not much painting to the end stages. So wish me luck.

Part 2 .....stand by....

Oh, what a nice little model. It actually looks like a real challenge to do a good job on it. A real test of the skills :D

That sort of model is almost impossible to find out here these days, in Canberra anyway.

Right chaps done some work on my entry.

Started on the track wheels. Had to run a drill down each hole in the middle to make them fit on the spigot. The top set of track runners wil (hopefully) hide the holes on the teethed wheel.

Nice work Chill. Have a extra K for taking the trouble to use a background for the photos.

NIce start, my only memory of that kit is that I nearly cried when I seen how small it was. I think I was only 7 or 8 at the time.
Good luck with your build.
