I donīt thing you got to scratch build it, at least not in extent, only to add/modify some stuff.

You can start with the kit from AFV Club of the same vehicle in 1/35 and add or change some bits with some Accurate Armour products.

Hereīs the kit I mentioned in an online store, I built the Scorpion (almost the same kit except for the storage bins and the main gun) Be aware of the vynil tracks though, not that good but I donīt know if there is any replacement for them:

FV 107 SCIMITAR

Hope it helps

Cheers

As the Scimitar LEP conversion is no longer (AFAIK), you'll have to scratchbuild some bits like the extra bins and the revised grilles for this Op Telic vehicle.

Here's a good example:

Great to hear you are back in business Terry...do you have a new site for Castoff or a price list?
