(Pictures of the rhino are further down the page on a post from me)

Abandoned Rhino
Obviously this tank was a war machine, so firstly I had to remove the exhausts, which followed by sanding them down to a flat surface. Next I cut the Land Raiders exhausts off and split them up into 4 different ones, when this was done I filed the bottoms flat and any holes remaining at the bottom was patched up with modelling putty, I glued each exhaust in replace of the original ones. Next I removed the top hatch and replaced it with some mesh I found at my old work place, I cut a small hole to represent damage to it and bent it inwards.

The rear door was replaces and the holes for the opening mechanism was filled in with modelling putty, I cut an old rhino door hatch in half and placed it as a door on one side with a little cutting to make it shorter then placed the edges on the door that was cut off for added detail, after that was done I glued a step on the opposite side from a Land Speeder, I added damage to the sides using clippers and a knife and a few holes and a cut on the back side of the model using a heated up paper clip. On the front exhaust on the left side I added an Eldar wing cut down to look like an Imperial wing.

Finally I painted the model blue to look like an old Ultramarines Rhino then added rust on any exposed metal areas with brown and silver then again with just brown so it looks as if its been left standing around for awhile when it had been abandoned.

Pictures would be good to see what you did instead of reading a discription.

Photos are a bit blurry, but I get the gist. Excellent work! I love the oversized exhausts, they'd be awesome for an Overcharged engine...gonna have to steal that idea.

looks great, its really well painted. could you amybe find a way of mounting it on like a scienic base? that would look awesome.
I have been thinkin about doing that, its just gettin around to doing it, if you have any ideas for a scienic base they would be more than welcomed.

Very well done. For a base, I would get a bit of hard board and build it up with flock, rocks and lichen all around the rhino to show nature growing around it.

The rusting effect is very nice, be sure to keep the base fitting with the colour scheme. Also, try to make it a bit dynamic, with the rhino having run aground somehow, or something like that, otherwise it'll look like a rhino taking a stroll in a field.
