Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I have a couple questions.
1) Is every tank made out of a rhino base? I see Predator upgrade sprues, vindicator, and landraider sprues also. So do I just need a rhino then buy this upgrade sprue?
2) What magnets would you use and where do I buy them to make it so I can switch out the side guns and the main turret on the predator. Also the Dreadnought arms? Thanks!
Thanks for the help!

I got Rare Earth Magnets from eBay - you can get them in a variety of sizes, and it's always worth using the biggest you can hide from view.2) What magnets would you use and where do I buy them to make it so I can switch out the side guns and the main turret on the predator.

yep, 100% as realitycheque said.
Some hints with the magnets: rare earth / neodymium - they really are surprisingly strong.
before gluing to your models work out which side attaches and which one doesn't - if you glue your two parts to the magnets it's quite annoying if they repel one another.
also, they're quite strong, esp when you try to pull them apart - but "shear" where you slide them against one another is quite another thing. have it so gravity will be pulling the part down - it's unlikely to hold if it's attached "sideways" (the gap between the magnets should be horizontal normally - most people get this but it's just to be sure)
I have seen some exellent plastic rod, with the same central diameter used as a "sheath" with one magnet in, and it just slightly overlaps the other magnet and stops any sliding about.
