Roman: thanks for the quick reply. I'm not familiar with Warhammer or this genre, so the link is greatly appreciated. What's the approximate scale?

Happy Modelling, -zon

I think it is smth between 1/35 and 1/48, I can take a picture of 1/35 tank next to it, if you are interested.

Otherwise, those WH40K models are fun to build. Really easy to assembly, it can be done in a couple of hours and then you can experiment with painting and weathering without fear that you ruin a sophisticated build.
The disadvantage is that the kits are quite expensive comparing to the level of detail you get from usual 1/35 models. Unless you are a fan of WH40K...

Roman,

No need for the extra photo, your description gives me enough idea of the size. I might have to look into this WH40K thing a little more... seems interesting.

Happy Modelling, -zon

Hi Tony, thanks for feedback! I have only two WH40K models, this Rhino and a space marine Predator tank. Got 1st place on Norwegian IPMS this year in "various" category

Very nice!

Those WH40K are quite cool but expensive. I wandered into a Games Workshop once and was really impressed with some of the build up stuff on display. Some really interesting flying things too.... some day I'll get around to trying one or 2

Thanks Sean. Try to buy them when you are not in EU - you can claim tax free
