Takom G6 Rhino

  • move
I knew nothing about the Rhino before this build. I saw the box art and thought it was an interesting looking vehicle that was really eye-catching. I did a little research and found it to be a very impressive vehicle, and looked like a fun build.

This is completely OOB, with no upgrades at all. It was a fairly quick build for me, taking about 3 weeks from start to finish. It was my first Takom model as well, and I was very impressed with the quality, so will buy from them again.

Nice work. Interesting camo, where did you find it because I have same kit awaiting for paint and all I could find are sand and three colour scheme.

UAE Army G6s are painted in two-tone camo: LINK

However there are some differences in the turret configuration for the UAE version compared to the SADF one.

The camo is based almost entirely on this image: As stated above, there are differences in the turret that can be seen in this photo. I liked the camo better than the 3 tone, or the sand base so went with this one. My pleasure, glad you like it

What a cool-looking combat vehicle! Reminds me of something from "Aliens" it's that futuristic. Love the paint & weathering!

Wow. Fascinating subject, extremely well rendered! Well done!! You think this looks SciFi? Check out the proposed G6 Marksman!! I'd definitely pick up a 35th model of that!!
