Ah... you're referring to the Rubric of Ahriman there, aren't you? This could be tricky. Back to the drawing board...

Don't leave us engineers with too much free time on our hands...
we WILL tinker around and build something!!!

Default Hinging Rhino Doors & Hatch

Been a while since I updated this PLog for the Wolfies. Since I had to build a second Rhino (finally!), I decided that I'd take pics of the door and hatch hinges to officially document the way I did them here.

First off, I took the Forgeworld Space Wolf doors for the wolf head icon. Unfortunately the FW doors were only good for the icon as the reverse side of it did not have the grating like the doors that comes standard with the Rhino set.




So I proceeded to prep the original doors plus cut and sand down the FW door icon to fit these original doors.












Next stage was to work on creating the hinges. To do this, the centre bit of the plastic make-believe hinges on the doors were carefully removed with a miniature modelling saw. After that, a small hole was drilled through the remaining hinge stubs.






To make the actual hinge, thin gardeners wire and paper clips were used.










After that, holes were drilled into the door frame to receive the hinges. In my case, these were drilled into the FW extra armour sections but if building onto a normal Rhino, then simply drill the holes into the door frame on the main side panel. I also made a small slotted recess to house the end bit of the hinge to allow the rear face of the extra armour panel to remain flush, allowing me to glue it directly onto the Rhino body without having to deal with unwanted protrusions. The rear bits of the hinges are bent into the slots and super-glued in place.








So the hinging of the doors are done...








Now onto the Rhino's top hatches. Again the hinges are made in the same way but this time slightly longer hinges are required as the hatch door hinges are larger. The second pic below shows the modelling saw used to make the initial cuts into the hinges before using the X-acto blade to clear out the redundant bits of the plastic hinges.








As with the doors, the hatches are secured in place with holes drilled in the top plate and hinges super-glued in place on the inside.








So that is how I hinge my doors. Hope this is useful for you all if you are crazy enough (like me) to want to do this!!!

I'm definitely stealing these plans and using them on my BA vehicles Just giving you a heads up for when you see them in my DC PLog

These are looking fantastic man! I can't wait to see what you have in your next update.

Go right ahead, mate. That was one of the main reasons for posting the sequential pics for "fellow crazies" to have a go at modifying their doors & hatches! Looking forward at seeing your mods when you get them done.

Cheers for that! Now I just need to sort out another one and I'll have two proper Rhinos plus the first one I did last year (without the top hatch modification) that runs as a Razorback with swappable magnetised weapon systems (Heavy Bolters, Lascannons or TL Plasmagun & Lascannon).

Them Rhino doors are amazing. I don't think I would ever have the time or patience to do that. Very nice work.
