Hi folks.
Some great work on such a small kit.
Here's my take on the scorpion (I fitted the antenna in the wrong place though :oops:  )

My take on the Scimitar version of this kit.  OOB apart from trying to add some width to the hull, aerials will need replacing at some time as they look a little on the thick side:

I have enjoyed looking at these! I've not built this kit but it looks like a very nice little build for wargaming

Here's my stab at this little gem of a kit. Unlike most of the folks on this thread, my experience with the tracks was a positive one... I built this model from the original issue of the kit. Perhaps the later issues used an inferior material for the tracks? Dunno. Anyway, the tracks were beautifully represented in my kit.
I cleaned things up by thinning some pieces, drilling out others, and I added detail with styrene strip and stretched sprue.

Really nice... Good representation of a clean, well-used wagon. Weathering is nicely subtle, especially the tracks.
