As a kid the first AFV I ever sat in was an M56 Scorpion, on display at a local college in the late 1960s. Blame the sting of the Scorpion for my interest in military equipment and models.

Nice Fred. Thank you for sharing the pictures. Perfect timing as they go along great with the review you just posted on the Osprey Publishing book about the Ontos and Scorpion.

Thanks for the photos, an interesting beast, but as I said earlier I would hate to be crew on something like this.
