1/32 AFV Club Scimitar was created by Gary
While building the ME109 I cracked open this kit and built it, it went together very nicely and it's quite a nice size but still has very good levels of detail.

Nice G1. Recon tank isn't it? Is that the one James Blunt used to drive? Von Drinkoften will know, he's his biggest fan :P

That's because the Scimitars are based on the same chassis as the Scorpions they had the main gun changed to an Raarden 30mm canon, as far as I know they are still in use.

Very nicely done Gaz. I seem to recall you saying that you had this on your 'to do' list.. I remember the AFR had these in Germany for 'perimeter patrol' or 'base security' - personally I think they used them to go in to town for a beer at the weekend !!

Ahhh... I figured it would be something like that but didn't want to flaunt my general ignorance of such things just in case I was wrong lol. :blush: :P
I remember seeing the RNZAF toss one (an NZ Army Scorpion I believe) out the back of a C-130 while still rolling at an air show many, many moons ago.
Was quite impressive to see.

Very nice G1

Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.
