Spikey Bits had a neat conversion in their newsletter. It looks like a scan from WD. I am intrigued by it, but there is no information on how it was made. I only recognize the front hatch, essentially. Can anyone break down how this was made, if it was a scratchbuild or what? I mean, the stowage is probably from Tamiya kits or whatever, but the main body, the turret, etc?

Looks like a backwards leman russ hull with windows from the chimera and ork buggy or trukk wheels. Sponsions are also from a russ just trimmed. The rest might all be fabricated.

It looks like lots of plasticard. There is also a good chance that it was built on a 1:35 scale tank.

The wheels are from Space Marine bikes though.

Yeah, now that I look at it, I think there was a Leman Russ involved in it as well.

We have a clone which he claims to have built. Same user name here, should have the shopping list.
