    I think now is my turn to annoying you with my 40k tanks and various builds.

    I thought to start my thread with my very first attempt at building a rhino, about 12 years ago , but it was recently destroyed by two warlords titans...

    Now I've try some other build, with toughness as first requirement.
    Starting from Bile's rhino template, I've cut out some rough shapes from corrugated cardboard

    and then glued toghether to form the basic rhino volume.

    Now I start to cover it with layers of thin cardboard, following the template.


    and add some washers to made the "wheels" (not my idea, "stolen" from a b.o.l.s. pre heresy landraider tutorial)

    Everything was primed with black paint (general hobby acrylics)


    with the right colors, you can obtain something like this


    or this



    Unfortunately, my painting skill is very low, and still I have to complete the model...
    and many more are on the way. Hope I can force myself to finish wath I've started.

    The corrugated method you have used is excellent!! I bet that model is really strong. Great job!!

    Nice job! I have a Battle Company of Dark Angels in need of transportation. Seems like you can't get far in 5th Ed without lots of Rhinos/Razorbacks but the cost of GW's models has gotten ridiculous lately. Thanks for posting!

    Very good job. I have used corrugated cardboard in the past and skinned it with regular bond paper, the outline of the corrugated cardboard showed through. Later models I used heavier card stock and that eliminated the see though corrugated ribs. Great builds and you did a good job on newobmij's Storm Raven. Thanks for sharing and waiting to see more.

    I found similar tricks worked for my IG tanks - corrugated card to fill the structure with cereal packet/beer crate card or thin foam core on the outside to stop ribbing from showing through.

    Very nice builds!
