In your earlier pictures the track housing from the rhino chassis didn't quite cover the tracks. Are you going to have a piece to cover the gap?
Yea i have a plan for that, which i shall reveal shortly

So i have stuck down the vindicator's extra armoured roof and the front section, which just fits ok at the front but not at the back, so i will have to do something about that soon.

As was mentioned earlier by Kreuger, there is a slight gap in the armour, so im going to try and cut and fit the russ' track guard around the vindicator armour like so:

Its a real bitch trying to get them to match up though, so im going to have to fill the gaps in with some green stuff.

coming to the end of the main construction of the tank now, iv attached the russ' exhausts onto the back to try and hide the rhino door:

And i have finished fitting the track guard around the armour plating, i will need to fill in the gaps but it looks pretty good so far:

Finished stage one of the project, so im classing it as done for the conversion competition.
Filled in all the gaps with green stuff, and iv changed the barrel to the defiler one.

Looks Great man.

I would have almost gone for a bigger-gun so I could use it as a Tank-Destroyer as well. (Which you still could)

That's looking really nice.

I have 2 hopes for your next steps. That you will sand/trim down the greenstuff and that you'll greenstuff the seam in the defiler cannon.

It's coming together really well.
