Note it's not worth doing at full price. I got lucky with the shanks for -50% and made my own front plate and instead of the front lower heavy armour used some bits from the old leman russ vehicle sprue (the extra armour bits), then waited for the other bits; the antenna and the 2 small plates to get back in stock. Took ages to get all the parts, too.
Need to take pics of my stalker that was made with the home made front plate, you almost can't tell the difference. I used milliput and other bits to bulk out a normal front hull and then gave the tank commander a 70s afro to complete the look.

Thanks for the feedback. From what you linked, it doesn't look like that's anything super important, more cosmetic stuff. I've found myself with a plethora of Rhinos I don't need, so if I can make two tanks using this kit and one of them...
There may be no "I" in "Team", but there is a "Team" in "Meat Shield".

The extras are all cosmetic, just to make it look the part, with heavier armour on the front and sides.
I only spruced it up so that even GW staffers will have to look closely to see that it looks a little bit different to the standard kit. The armoured sides are quite nice, I think the same bit is in the vindicator kit.
In terms of the game its good to have 3 stalkers in a squadron because they deny jink saves in squadrons of 3. Haven't done that yet so I might make a new 500 point expansion including a 3rd aa tank (or 4th really)
