I bought a Whirlwind a while ago to use the rokkit launchers on my battlewagon, and I'm left with a rhino-esque chassis to work with. I decided I'm going to make it into a guntrukk, but because I like modular and interchangeable designs, I haven't picked a single armament for it yet - ideally, I'll be able to make different guns for whatever I feel like arming it with. I may also make a wooden deck attachment that would replace the top turret in the event I don't feel like using a guntrukk or need an extra trukk for transporting my boyz. So, overall, this is going to be a very open-ended design.
I couldn't help but see an orky face in the original Rhino front plate, so I figured I'd emphasize it a bit by bulking it out and making it a flat impact surface.
After having put LEDs in my battlewagon, I wanted to do the same with all of my other vehicles. I cut two thin panes of glass and sanded them down a bit so they would diffuse light, and put them behind the 'eyes' of the vehicle - they'll ideally light up an orange color once I go out and buy the LEDs.
I'm making the hatches openable and I tore out the interior doors of the Rhino, since no respectable ork is going to let a door slow him down between him and the fightin'!
I plan on making a turret that will fix onto the top and be removable for when I need to use the vehicle as a transport Trukk in my army. I actually think that since I'm planning on making a Zzap cannon, I'm going to make a turret mount and two large, thick power cables that trail down from the barrel into the base of the turret and down into the two holes that aren't planked up - the only thing I have to take care to do is to make sure that they're still removable when I make this.
This is an earlier shot in it's development, but it shows what the eyes would look lit up.
Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated, as I like feedback a great deal.
Haha, looks awsome so far.
Do something more on the "chin". Looks kind of empty there.
Awsome. :yes: Looking forward to see this one finished and painted.
*love* the front - looks V cool- I may have left it open topped myself but I don't know the rules for Ork stuff so maybe not
Good stuff tho
That's awesome, I love the missile burried in the hull.:rofl:

And the lights are almost done. I ripped the missile back out and put a toggle switch in there, then put the missle back ontop of it - wiggle the missile to the left, the eyes turn on. I picked a green color to offset the fact that I plan on painting the body of the vehicle red - I felt that the effect that red lights would have would be negligible.
9v battery's sitting in the interior right now, which I think I'm going to end up closing off to force the boyz to ride on the wooden top and effectively make it 'open-topped' again.
that thing is awesome!
