Note that, if you're building M8 Scotts for Flames of War, you only need 2 or 3 for a platoon; and if you're building a Stuart company, you can only field a single (optional) M8 Scott platoon.

In other words, you probably don't want to build all five as M8 Scotts. grin

Also note that, with a little sacrifice in accuracy, you coud build an M5 hull and swap out M5 and M8 turrets so you can field either vehicle. The loss of accuracy is because the M8 hull is slightly different (a different hull front piece), so an M8 turret on an M5 hull is slightly 'wrong'. grin
