    You did a really good job on this. I have toyed with doing this model, as I made one around 20 years ago, but yours looks so good, it would be better to start greeblin' from yours! Bravo on such an iconic vehicle! :)

    My jaw has just dropped onto the floor! You have completely blown me away! This is an awesome addition to the collection. GREAT WORK and THANK YOU! :)

    I think you could determine the scale by comparing SA's wheels and the wheels of my Landram. The Chariot was its "grandfather" AFAIK, and despite of the different chassis the wheels should be the same size.

    @spaceagent-9 : Do you mind me tinkering with it a bit on occasion? ;)

    I don't know how you could really improve on this. Glass, and an interior, but at 3 inches, is it worth it? Yes, I think so. You really did a fantastic job of this, don't sell yourself short. If I used your model as a reference, I could clean it up, but it could be a derivative work. You nailed it man! :)

    well, if someone wanted to rescale it in vector[ bgto1 ] i would not object to a clean up and redraw and also resize. an interior would be in order but that wouldn't be that difficult.......

    Yaknow, I made a quick google search and I think that this is the only paper model of the Chariot available - to date! You have really filled a niche, Jim. :)

    I also took a look at the track system. If anyone is attempting to make a vectorized and enlarged kit he / she should consider using the track assembly from my Landram BUT with the wheels from my Colonial Power Sled and slightly altered "ribs". The complete undercarriage should be the same size so determining the scale would quite easy. If anyone needs some (new) parts for kitbashing, please feel free to PM me (I still have the original *.cdr files just in case you are unable to import the *.pdf). (I would do it myself but I am still busy making the Buck Rogers Rovers.) :)
