I saw the Venezuelan one a few days ago and I was just hoping they'd do Indonesia - and now they have!
Never trust a man who tells you that you have too many paints, for he is obviously a liar and will most likely try to deceive you again in future.

An aside story; mrs kitnut's Dad was in the REME and was posted for a while in the Recovery Unit. He told me he was called out one day to go clean up some mess. Apparently, a prototype Scorpion the Army was testing had been driving very fast down one of the 'M' roads the UK has, when it suddenly shed it's tracks --- the following mayhem cause considerable damage to public vehicles in the vicinity ---  Afterwards the Scorpions were fitted with a governor to restrict their speed.

I knew they were fast, but... fast enough for a motorway? That’s pretty good. Unless it was the M25, I suppose....

Originally, they were fast enough to drive on a motorway, until the accident -----

Tempted to do a 90mm version in either Australian Marines scheme or even USMC scheme.  Aniother idea would be to do a Kiwi one as a subtle whiff to catch the unwary given the Kiwis did have Scorpions.

Scary fast, i well recall dad overtaking one on a back road near Salisbury (mustv been late 70's/early 80's) the chap on top gave a wave (me peering out looking over the vehicle) next we knew there was a roar behind us as the Scorpion overtook us in a cloud of dust and smoke at 50mph. I loved the little flashing indicator light as it pulled back into lane the chap in the turret grinning, definately made our day :)
