Nice work, Chris.

Looking forward to more WIP shots as you develop her.:)

I not familiar with this variant, anyone know what the rear spoiler is for?

My guess is drag racing down the autobahn...

It's a mast for mounting an assortment of sneaky-beaky devices.

Scim looks good Chris.

Any chance you could leave the current plain green texture in the mix with the planned green & black, and des tan versions? Black stripes are increasingly rare as they generally don't get repainted if a vehicle undergoes base repair - not by DSG anyway. You'll notice that newer vehicles that we've procured since the mid-00s like Titan, Trojan, Panther, Terrier, MAN SV and the Bulldog fleet (upgraded FV430s) etc. are all plain green.

Also, any plans to do an Armoured Recce version?

I was actually thinking that about the green and black .... how does the Armoured Reeve version differ? isit without the bar armour and the upgrades , go fast stripes etc?

Armoured Recce scimitars belong to the 'close reconnaissance' squadrons of heavy cavalry (tank) regiments. They are fitted with BGTI (Battle-Group Thermal Imaging) system (like Warrior) instead of the smaller E-SPIRE (Enhanced Sight Periscopic Infra Red Equipment) sight unit used on Formation Recce regt. Scimitars, like the one you have modeled so far.

Example of a Scimitar with BGTI:

Currently they'd be without the TES equipment (ECM, bar armour etc) as none of the tank regiments deploying to Afghanistan are in a role that would require sending their Scimitars (there are no CR2s over there after all). But in the eventuality of them being in a war that required such upgrades as has led to the current Scimitar 235/TES(H) UORs; they'd probably get them.

Right , it has come to attention that some of the parts of the model have been ripped from a possable internal tester or X Dev from Project Reality.

I was given the parts under good faith that the lad ( a " mate " ) had made and was giving me a helping hand to create it. Ive spoke to UK Force and i will be taking off the Screen shots and will be re-do'ing all the parts in question.

Abit of a arse because its set back the release of it , but lesson learnt and hopefully come back looking even better than before.

Thanks to UK Force for being patient with it and not just going mlaarr like i know he must of been tempted to do !!
