So at long last someone has actually asked where the idea for this project came from. And well it is rather easy to explain, disappointingly.
In White Dwarf, the games workshops own magazine, there was once an article on the Predator Battle Tank, with an exploded diagram and a lot of fluff on the tank itself. How it was based on the Rhino APC which is built from an ancient Standard Template Construction, and at the bottom of this article was a small paragraph, relating to a some redundant design features that show that between the Land Raider and Rhino there exists another type of tank. This one throw away line has lead to me spending hours working on this project to build what I'm calling poxy proxy Predator.
