I finished up this Vanquisher awhile ago, all that is left to do is a new tank commander for it, but thanks to the magnets I installed - that will be easy. Also, im trying to decide on how to do the tank commander in the first place, I have a feeling there will be a metal Desert Raider chopped in half - but that will be for another time! The side is fairly simple, just a bag on top of the sponson and the drag chain bent slightly to rest under the sponson. I cut off the co-ax heavy stubber from the kit and put in a standard heavy stubber next to the vanquisher barrel, this removed the Death Korps feel of the turret. Also, this gives the shot of that extra armor on the side:
Alot going on in this picture! I added slope to the back storage box with some thick square plastruct and then sanded them down to make the box level, this created the space I needed to put on the extra fuel tank. Because the cannon is so long and does not elevate, everything needed to be below 'tube level' or I wouldn't be able to remove the turret, and because I have magnetized the demolisher turret that came with it, I needed to be able to get the turret off! Also, you can see that I shaved an old russ storage rack and got it into place to the right of the engine compartment, this chassis is a new demolisher chassis and the new kits dont have that back storage place. Once it was put into place the bag and water cans slid right in. Also you can see how I squeezed a shovel and pick into place on top of the left sponson.
