    Hi all firstly i'd like to say i'm well aware that this is a wargames forum!!
    & the idea of a 1-6th scale rhino may seem about as far fetched as a bucket
    of *hit from china!! however i'm willing to give it a try with the help & great
    ideas of my budding gamers here!!

    Secondly this is not a project for anything warhammer 40k but in fact for my ever
    growing ultimate soldier collection!! just thought i'd say that so you guys dont think
    that i'm tryin to concokt some 12" high space marines or something lol

    Right moving on swiftly!!

    I'm a little undecided on what materials to use for this project i'm thinking maybe
    plasticard but i dont know if it will be strong enough as ive never used the stuff before, may need ideas on other materials etc etc!

    I've already decided that instead of the standard rhino bolter i'm going to be using a WW2 type MG!! in order to tye it in with the WW2 theme.

    As for a plan i currently have a good friend working night & day on CAD!!!
    using only the standard scale rhino kit plan for ideas & scale!

    Please comment on the project or if you have any ideas on materials etc post them
    here, of course critizm is always welcome!

    Nick

    1-6th as in a sixth the size

    Because the impression im getting is the models going to be 6x the size of the regular

    If thats the case use MDF board, Cheap, easy to work with, and durrable

    You can get some finishing tips from www.fieldofarmor.com They sell 1/6 Tiger kits. If you do a search on the web you will find a number of large scale builders of tanks ranging 1/5 to 1/9.

    MDF will work for a shell, but is time consuming to assemble at large sizes, since you can't run a screw or nail into the edge side and have much strength. You pretty much have to put in a corner brace at every joint. If you don't need much strength hot glue is your friend, but for real strength screws are the way to go.

    We&#39;re talking a 1-6th scale Rhino here. Balsa wood is just too fragile and looks strange on it.

    i agree with WiCkEdRock balsa wood is to fragile.
    what would be the best type of screws to use for MDF
    as i dont want to get the model all cut to shape and size
    and the go breaking it with the wrong size screws etc&#33;

    it depends on the thikness of the mdf , id go with the thinnest ones you can get , wood screws are what your looking for but ask at a hardware shop anyway .
