I'd recognise that Rhino anywhere.

Thanks to a kindly benefactor, the other half of Charybdis parts is now being printed.

Edit - corrected verb count to singular "half is being printed".

Other random facts:

The command deck gun was too thin, so I embiggened that. The next prototype will be in the upcoming batch.

I put a "I love Bella" note on the bottom of the mover, since the girl was annoyed that "I love Yen" is on the bottom of another tank.

The mover vehicle has a nice heft to it.

The antenna is somewhat tricky to assemble. I might do something about that, might not.

I think "I love Edward" would be better.

That way, those of us on team Jacob won't feel too bad about blowing it up.

Wow I can't believe you just threw Twilight into the Warhammer Universe!

And I didn't know you felt that way for Jacob? Its because of his toned body isn't? ;)

Back on Topic...Awesome news and thanks to Kindly Person that support the Otter Forge! Let the God Emperor Bless him!

I have been making molds for the Charybdis, which consists of the following parts:

2 movers
2 mover cabs
1 command deck
1 command deck gun
1 antenna base
1 antenna dish
1 gun core
4 gun vanes
2 bridge sections
1 central section
4 support legs

The connectors for the bridge and and central sections were poorly thought out. However, with some creative drilling, they can be made to work.
The command deck gun is too fragile. I've printed a sturdier version but haven't molded it yet.
The mold for the command deck needs work.
The mold for the mover is marginal, but is workable.
The antenna is fragile, but workable. A new design is queued for printing.
I haven't tried assembling the gun yet, but the molds are a pain in the ass.

There should be 2 plug-in gubbins for the central section, but they were overlooked. They're also in the print queue.

I haven't done the battery vehicle. Perhaps someday I'll get perky and design it and his buddy, the unpictured coolant supply truck.

Edit - added support legs

Good Work! Keep it up Sir Otter of Water!

Soon you'll be ready to make more Over-Sized Weapons on little platforms!

Yen and I enjoyed a drunken evening of playing with the new Charybdis molds. As expected with most new molds, there were air flow issues. A few cuts with a scalpel, and we're ready to try again.

Yay :)

Any approximate idea of time frame till production (since I have no concept of how long these things take :D )

An interesting question. At least a few more weeks since I still have to print the aforementioned gubbins and refine the molds.

Like many other projects, this started as a love/vanity sort of thing with no real thought given to mass production. Perhaps limited quantities at about $24 each? There are a lot of parts involved.
