Hi Mate, Great pics, Having served in a Rapier Regiment. I am planning on making a 1/35 scale model. using an Mlrs, and support vehicle. I know it will be a challenge but I think I am up to it . I am at the planning stage, just have finished a model of a blown up humvee Ambulance turned up pretty well. Once again thanks for taking them I have a very extensive collection of pics of the tracked Rapier. Doc

Charlie I am glad this will be of use to you, I just wish a manufacturer would release an injection moulded model of this vehicle. As you have a large selection of pictures by all means send them in and we will turn it into another walkaround of the tracked rapier.

Hi Charlie, The MLRS is the wrong chassis for a Tracked Rapier, too many wheels for a start. Your best bet is to get hold of the AFV Club 1/35 M548 Tracked Cargo Carrier # 3503 which has the correct chassis. I hope to build one of these Rapiers sometime in the next year or so .
