As the proud new UK Agent for Gecko, Tiger Hobbies have been given permission, to release some basic details or an up coming kit of a UK subject.

 Back in 1996  AFV Club did basic FV101 Scorpion and FV107 Scimitar, still great kits, but none of the other support vehicles were done due to the different chassis of Spartan APC, Samson Recovery,  Sultan Command  and Samaritan Ambulance.

 Scimitar Mk 2 is on the longer Spartan type chassis, but with new Turbo Diesel Engine, but the basic chassis can lead to the others in time.

 We think this will come sometime in 2021, but sooner they do it, it will lead to our largest ever single plastic kit order.

 The only way you can get the CVRT Specialist vehicles is by very very expensive and hard to build resin kits.


The Scimitar Mk 2 is a new upgrade version of the standard version of the British CVRT Scimitar. Throughout the vehicle's life. BAE Systems has supported, enhanced and upgraded the family, allowing its operators to retain the upper hand on the battlefield. Protection and firepower enhancements have seen the vehicle weight increase from 8,000 to 12,250 kg. At the same time, performance upgrades have maintained a balance with mobility as well as boosting capability in harsh environments. Contract award for CVR(T) Mk 2 was in December 2010, following an earlier risk mitigation programme. The upgrade was developed, tested and managed by the Vehicles Military & Technical Services team at BAE Systems’ Telford site. The team also co-ordinated vehicle build at the nearby DSG (Defence Support Group), Donnington facility. All 50 vehicles will be delivered by early 2012. The Scimitar Mark 2 combat vehicle is one of five enhanced Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked) ([CVR(T)]
