Hey all. Here is some more on my vindicator. Again its not fully done as weathering happens when the vindicator body as a whole is done. But here we are:
So far there is not much different then a standard Rhino. The key difference is the extra armor plates and the attachment for where the dozer blade will attach. What is good about this is that Games Workshop actually has an article on assembling the vindicator that goes with the instructions included. The link is: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/article.jsp?categoryId=cat180005&aId=3400026 . For the most part is great and I personally use it over the instructions included. However for assembling the cannon for example there is one part that already has a part attached to it at least in my kit.
Anyway to the parts i have done. The extra armor on the hull is an easy fit. dry fit then cut and file down the rivets underneath it to give it a nice flush sit. The article states that as well but i find that is important. Also the part that the dozer blade will attach to isn't needed if you don't want a dozer blade but I suggest attaching it regardless and if your able to then magnetize the dozerblade to it. I wont be doing that but it would be a good move.
Well until next time. Hope that helped
