Okay here we go.

Scammel Snow Scarab:











Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Gorgeous.  Well done mate.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Hehehehe H, that's a TOTAL HOOT!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I can just see it scudding across the Pennines in 2 ft deep snow drifts.

Probably trying to keep up with a Track Rover....  ;) :o

I'm impressed with that, well done H  :thumbsup:

I've got fond memories of those 3-wheeler's from when my dad worked for B.R. including coming back from Great Ormond St in the back of one after an operation as a nipper. What made it memorable was that B.R. was on strike and so they used the truck to get me home.  No trains see ?  :rolleyes:

No windows in the kit. I debated making some but while the sides are easy, the front isn't, and I wanted to make sure I finished in time. The cab isn't glued on so if I end up using this in a diorama, I can put some windows in then.

Cheers folks!  :thumbsup:

I have a few mods in mind and I've just figured out an easy way to make safety guards for the prop, but I won't post anything until after the vote.
