I want to make 3-4 Chimera in a similar fashion as the one below. Does anyone know how it was done or what kit was used? Is it FW, kit bash or costume? Thanks.






For reference, here's a different Chimera/Predator, but they kept the original Chimera top panel.

Its an easy but expensive kit bash, using the parts maximus above pointed out. To get the parts needed you would be looking at about double the price of a chimera, that said it would make a excellent Leman Russ alternate , because the actual Leman russ looks poo poo

There's also a FW conversion piece in there that you get with the Hydra and their old manticore, which melds the top of the chassis into a flat surface with a pivot point for the turret.

That's what I figured. The flat top plate would mean that I would also need a new or costume rear door/hatch. I may have to figure something else to do.

@B&K: I went to you site but I couldn't find what I was looking for. Do you have the Chimera/Basilisk track covers?

They are out of stock , they are in the imperial tank sprue section of my site, sadly the sprue is rare these days and direct only which means I get them very rarely these days.
Like I say its a pricey conversion, those track covers are pretty easy to make with plasticard and that would be much cheaper.
