So, I've been working on getting my Chimera ready for painting. Now, I've never really liked one key aspect of the Chimera model; the turret. Even on the new version its painfully small. I really don't see how anybody could operate that without having his feet in the drivers face. I also dislike the fact its forward mounted. I wanted my chimera to look something more like this:
I was also really inspired by SandWyrm's excellent Chimera Conversions. Its a really great tutorial if your looking at doing something similar...
Sooo, after buying two different tank kits and some extensive cutting, filing and plasticard-ing, heres what I came up with:
Praetorian Pattern Chimera
I've got to be honest, I'm pretty damned pleased with it - it certainly looks more bulky and 'tank-like' than the normal Chimera model. It also gives the impression of more space for the passengers, which is no bad thing...
Let me know what you think!
