Managed to add this rather largish Scorpion to the collection recently.
Not the longest Newell Scorpion I've ever seen, but it is a serious hunk of timber !



Below is the Newell - Bennett Scorpion (Peter carved, John painted) I picked up sometime ago and some drawings Peter gave to John of the larger Scorpions.

Wonder how many of these were made ?

Possibly a close relative of this little 2" Scorpion.



Peter was so good with the subtle paint jobs.
