I really only made some cosmetic changes to this particular piece. I detached the main barrel with a saw and shaved off the front of the flash suppressor, replacing the deleted barrel portion with plasticard tubing. The overall effect as you can see is a more realistic cannon, not to be mistaken for a vanquisher variant.
I attached a spalling shield to the front of the cupola. Funny, it was when I was trying to bend some heavier plasticard to conform to the front of the piece by immersing it in hot water that I bought from a nearby Mcdonalds. Of course, the bastard plastic was too heavy to bend even with boiling water at hand. I looked at the top of the little coffee cup, and the cover that came with it. Son-of-a-gun, the plastic from the cover was a perfect material for the shield.
I removed the hokey looking lascannon that comes with the kit and replaced the cannon with one from a cadian heavy weapons sprue, it looked alot more heavy duty, and very beefy. I also attached paneling to the sides of the LC and "secured" it with lengths of thin rodlike plasticcard. The conversion is supposed to represent extra armor, and I am really proud of that particular portion of this model. I didn't place the access hatch on top of the hard point so I could place another plastic card panel with a periscope acting as a sight for the gunner.
That armour on the lascannon is pretty nifty, really adds to the WW1 feel of the tank, further enhanced by the paintscheme!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

Nice work, seamless. if I didn't know what the original model looked like i'd not be able to tell where the original ends and your additions!
I really like it. I'm going to steal your flag idea I think, as I had to snap the radio mast to fit them into my box, so the wire idea might work.
Overall I think it looks good though, the paint scheme is nice, and the barrell extention works great! Good stuff!
Thanks Geb. The mast is a whole lot more durable and less likely to break as the flag wire is removable. I snipped the lance head off a WHFB knights lance for the topper, and I bent the wire to imply motion and add dynamic flow to the kit.
Looking pretty sweet there. I do like that little armour plate on the cupola the most it just stood out as a cool bit lol
Have you considered doing any troops and transport vehicles yet? I'd love to see your take on 'em
