Constructing the Legion Deimos-pattern Rhino

I pre-ordered the Horus Heresy Deimos-pattern Rhino and having picked it from my local FLGS I did think, would I leave it on the shelf for a few months (or years) before I started on it. Well I even surprised myself and actually started it a day or so after picking it up.

The model has many more parts and is a more detailed kit than the original plastic Rhino kit that came out in the 1980s.

It does go together quite easily, though I found some parts challenging.

I did think the rear door ramp was hard to attach. Also ensuring there are no gaps with the top superstructure was a bit of a challenge.

I decided not to paint the interior, though I am tempted to get another kit and do the interior on that one.

I added the final parts to the model.

I went with a simplistic version, single bolters.

I have left the tracks off and will be painting those separately.

The next stage will be a white undercoat.
