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.

it was alright from what i remember, maybe a bit finicky. tho the original model i built like crap(like all my cars) so when i got my hands on it, it fell apart in my hands.

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.

The radioactive sign in the back is the best part. No doubt there are some radioactive zombies in the wasteland looking for brains to eat. The T-1000 plasma cannon should be able to take out any brain loving zombie no problem. Is that the same old truck from your WIP picture with the red wheels?

enc86 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013
thanks buddy, yea you gotta have a radioactive sign!
yea its the same old brown truck from the WIPs, this is the finished truck(or as good as i am gonna do it lol) had heck of the time with the wheels but i got it done. learned to plan out what wheels and how you are going to use them at the beginning of a project cause they where a headache this time.

I think that it turned out great! Wheels can be a problem. I just finished a modified job that I really had a hard time finding the best set of wheels. I have tons of free wheels to choose from too! The Dremel tool comes in very handy for modifications. However, my problem was that I needed a shorter axle width to make it fit the car without making spacers which I have done in the past. Chop jobs always come with a headache at some point.

yea i dont have much of a stockpile on wheels(gonna have to load up at yard sales in the spring) the back wheels are hollow so i had to make spacers on the inside to get them to the axle.made tiny holes in the axle and attached the wheels with pins. anyways it was a good learning experience and practice. i got one more car on the bench then its on to zombies.

Yard and garage sales are the best place to find spare junk. The good ole spacer trick works every time. You know, people love muscle cars. This is why everyone freaked on the Mustang. Personally, I love the trucks and heavy duty vehicles but the muscle cars are sexier.

i love yard sales, gonna have to have a better eye this year.
lol yea i have a soft spot for trucks,tractors ect guess its the country boy in me. anyways yea mussel cars are sexier and sometimes less is more i think. anywho i am repainting my old Shelby cobra,should be finished this week then its on the zombies and tanks again.
