    I have a 3rd ed. Razorback that I just couldn't resist arming with the lascannon/twin-linked plasma option that is now tragically obsolete. Phooey. I've been pondering ordering the bitz necessary to build another one or two of the old twin-linked heavy bolter/twin-linked lascannon turrets, but at $17 per - ouch. It'd be better if I could mount a turret from the new Razorback to the old hull, but I haven't seen the new turret "in the flesh," as it were, and I don't know if that's possible. From the bitz pictures on GW's site, I can see that it doesn't match the old "heavy plate with a post on the bottom" mounting scheme, so I know I'd need a magnet or something, but beyond that I'm clueless. I'd love to hear from anyone who's done this, or has seen the new turret assembled and can comment.

    I guess I could always just plate/paint over the turret mounting on the hull and make it into a Rhino, but that seems like an ignominious fate for the old can...

    Incidentally, any idea why the lascannon/plasma combo is gone?

    The reason that games workshop got rid of it is that the new plastic razorback doesn't come with the parts to make it and games workshop couldn't be bothered making a plastic version.

    The razor back turret uses the same mounting as the predator. If you can get your hands on either a predator turret or razor back turret you can see if it matches up to what you have.
    You might be better off getting the new model, it looks good anyway.
    Alternately you could mail order the old metal razorback twin linked turret parts. You should be able to find them online.

    The mounting plate from the new Rhino body does not fit the old style rhino without some awkward trimming.

    My suggestion would be to cut a piece of plasticard (available in all good hobby shops) to the size of the top hatch on the old style body then cut a hole into it the correct size by tracing through the hole in new top plate.

    Cut out the hole, mount the new style gun to the plasticard and then mount that onto the old style body.

    You can take a few split peas or lentil (the smallest you can find) and glue them onto the plasticard to look like rivets and take away the flat look of it. Pin heads is another alternative.
