Had hoped to get my repaired childhood scorpions outside this weekend but the weather was awful.

I'm really pleased with these repairs to the turret, smoke launchers and machine gun.

So cool! Excellent repairs! They're looking better than new! Looking forward to seeing these vehicles in some realistic outdoor settings!

Thank you, the white material is styrene sheets, tube and rod. It's great stuff. This was made by evergreen.

Lucky bugger! You have not one, but two of them! The ladies of Kimono Troop would love to have even one such vehicle!

Cheers!
