Rhino Truck by enc86 Rhino Truck by enc86
In the savage wasteland, one of the keys to survival is salvage and technology. the USC (United Sovereign Colonies) knows this full well and deploys the mighty "Rhino" trucks to do such task. with a heavy winch, crane and upgraded tires the "Rhino" can gather even the most hard to get to scrap. the wasteland is a Dangerous place and sometimes the best defense is a good offense, thats why the "Rhino" is armed with a T-1000 Plasma cannon. the raiders and zombies just dont stand a chance with a Rhino is their path.


Anyways here is my Rhino truck built up from a old model i had and random junk. painted with "model Masters" enamels and weathered with art acrylics and pastels.
this was kinda a practice piece for me and was good to get more experience with the post apocalyptic stuff before i tear into a very new and expensive tank.
Overall i am happy but certain things could of been much better. i didn't plan out the tires or how to attach them in-till very far along in the build and this caused some headaches(lessen learned) overall tho it was really fun and a great learning experience for me.

Sweet built! The way its built and weathered makes me think of Borderlands :D
I've seen several model builders do something like this, and I'm kinda itching to do one after seeing yours. I have a Bronco I did years ago with a weathered paintjob, i think that would be a good start for something like this! :D

thanks dude!
yea these kitbashed cars are pretty fun and cheap to do. all my old model cars came out less than good when i built them a few years ago, so this is a good way to practice some stuff and have something to display. i am planing on doing a few tanks in this style as well.
anyways a Bronco would make a fantaic start, can totally see it.

Headaches are how you know you are doing something challenging. And that's what we love doing, because if it were easy then everybody would be doing it.

yea and it was a good learning experience. lol learned to figure out the wheel/tires before paint and in early planing not when everything else was done. one of those things that slipped my mind..lol its bound to happen when you are making up your own directions.
anyways it was good practice, got one more car on the bench then its on to 1/35 zombies and tanks.
