It is great to see real interest in my little constructions and ideas. A warm welcome to all new readers - I hope I can keep you interested for a while :)
OK, as mentioned in my previous posts, I had to do a re-build.
The advantage is, that it is now a lot cleaner and straighter than the original.
Here's a comparison shot of the old and the new bike.
As you can see, I also added some rails on the outside, protecting the drive mechanism from obstacles when driving.
I will probably also add something on the front, that may act as some armour plating as well as "plow".
Normal Rough Rider rules allow for laspistol and close-combat weapons, as well as the lances. My idea was more along the lines of some real firepower, with the twin-MG and maybe some bolters.
Anyhow, the idea of the tail-fin is gone, so there won't be much more in the rear - well, the exhaust(s) off course, plus some luggage.
I'm considering adding the two small bolters from the vehicles sprue (the twin bolter for the commander) and mount them left and right on the railing, plus the twin-MG.
Any better ideas or suggestions?
