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.

Unfortunately I have yet to master the skill of completing projects
one of your first? 
Damn -it looks natural, as if the model was made for this and couldn't be done any other way

Gorgeous!  This really makes me wish I could find a few nice '50s-'60s model kits or toys in the 1:50 to 1:48 scale range (1:64 is a little too small compared to most of the minis I have) that I could convert into "Fallout-esque" road-battle machines (or the occasional rusted hulk alongside the roadway).  I try to keep an eye out in the thrift stores and such, but the closest I've seen are the various Jada cars that, unfortunately, are in 1:64 (too small) or 1:32 (too big) scale, but nothing in between.

On that topic ... what scale is this at?  :D

thanks a ton! this one was alot of fun to do.

ahhhh really cool! yea keep your eye out you never know what you will find. but yea in that scale it can be pretty rare. i checked into the site i used but came up pretty empty in the 1/48 department.

this one is a 1/24 scale, pretty standard but really cheap.
