1/35 scale KAD FV-101 Scorpion (Malaysian version)

December 3, 2018 · in Armor · · 4 · 3.5K

This is the FV-101 which is used by the Malaysian Armoured Corps till to this day. This version of the FV-101 is heavily modernized with certain modifications to the major components. The kit used to build this model is the FV-101 light tank which is converted into the Malaysian specifications using scratch build parts for example the main cannon , rear and front fenders , armor shield was added to make the specification accurate. The camouflage used was the jungle stripes which comprises of Nato Green , Nato Brown , Wood Tan and Flat Black. Overall it was challenging built in terms of producing the modification parts and trying to estimate the measurement of those components but the rest was a textbook build. Thanks for the time !

  1. Excellent work, Mee Wan! Your camo pattern is done well. For someone who we have seen who does awesome ship dioramas , this is a nice change and further shows off your many skills.

    I like all kinds of armoured vehicles. Is that an anti-tank gun or an artillery cannon or howitzer? (For those who don't know, the main armament on a tank IS properly called a "Gun" although "cannon" is OK, too, Just not a howitzer. They specialize in Indirect fire as opposed to Direct fire. Indirect = overhead; Direct = line of sight)
