I am going to start Iron Hands, and I want to mess around with coverting my rhinos to become other vehicles. I know I'll have at least 2 of my heavy support spots filled with dreadnoughts, so I am limmeted here. I was thinking about a preadator, but would that be a smart choice if I will be feilding a Landspeeder squad? Either way, I want to make my rhinos atleast covert into razorbacks, and maybe just one into a preadator, if I ever need one. so...um, I guess I'm asking what needs to be kept unglued for rhino-razorback, rhino-preadator, and razorback-preadator coversions. Also, how would one go about modeling a veberable dreadnought? All I can think of is a banner, and some extra emblems, like a iron hand made of greenstuff on his right arm, or something. Well, thanks for your help.
well to model all 3 Predator, Rhino and Razorback, you need to buy a Predator kit and a Razorback turret sprue.
Then just leave the top plate unglued so you can put either the Predator/Razorback plate on (they both use the same fitting) or you can put the Rhinos hatch on.
You can simply switch Predator/Razorback turrets as you wish onto their mounting.

Predator has side sponsons, though. You'd have to find a way to get those sponsons off for a razorback. Magnets??? :ph34r:
Yeah I would recommend magnets..not only are they great for stuff like that, but in game if your dread gets immoblized you can just take the legs off..or say sponsons get destroyed, just take em off.

lol, go magnetos!
ven dread is a normal dread, so you dont have to really convert much on it.
Two ways I know that work,
Before you glue the hull together, you can cover the inside with a piece of plasticard with a magnet glued on it. You should space it so the magnet is the same depth into the vehicle that the Predator sponson will project including a magnet on it. Then the sponsons click on and off. Don't forget to make sure the polarity is correctly oriented. The Rhino doors will also have a magnet on them, but you will have to add a spacer as they don't project in as far. Their magnets will have to reach the Predator sponson mounted depth.
Carve a piece of foam into a plug that you glue on the back of the sponsons and doors. The plug works just like a cork. You wedge it into the hole. It works quite well.
