This is my action man scorpion as you can see I have done a bit of work on it !
when I got it it was missing 4 of the six smoke dischargers which I replaced with rawl plugs filled with bondic , I also replaced the machine gun with a piece of model sprue and a birthday cake candle holder, I also replaced the aerials with wire coat hangers and for the cap (so no one looses an eye) is a plastic hypodermic needle sheath
and on the bottom trusty candle holders again these are painted brown as insulators
I also used bondic to make lenses over the painted indicators and running lights.
I have also added a number plate ,this number is from a real scorpion in Bovington tank museum.
the lads driving it are tank regiment guys as per the basic soldier , so to reflect this all the markings and flags correspond to the 2nd royal tank regiment, armoured brigade.
In short this Scorpion is a light recce vehicle of 2rtr







I'm sure you are all aware the original Scorpion has the flags and markings of the household division ( household cavalry and blues and royals) this is because in an armoured brigade the household division are usually the recce vehicles for the main battle tanks but on this occasion 2rtr have fielded a tank from their own recce platoon

A great restoration Job CA. It's as satisfying to see a VAM vehicle bought back to life as it is a figure.

Nice work on the accurate markings too!
