Ork Jet Trukk part II

Ok I have now added some detailing as well as some parts from the ork trukk kit I already own. Whats that? Why not build the ork trukk straight out of the box? Too easy I'm afraid. I need to while away hours by slowly evolving a design as the whims take me. Why play the game when I can use up all of my time preparing for it....sometimes I hate myself.

Anyway I have added some details and have the GW Ork trukk wheels in some silicon mold rubber. That way I will have all of the wheels I will need to complete the army. I still feel that I must add more to the model. It does not yet look done to me yet although it does now remind me of a Caestus Assault vehicle

Ork Jet Trukk

Ok, I have slowly (painfully slowly) begun work on an Ork army for WH40K. And despite my "desire" to have a simple build, I just can not work on army like this (with so much conversion potential) without having a go at making a very unique looking Waagh.

So I have begun with the two trukks that the list has in it. Both will be based on a jet engine from a Star Wars Pod-Racer model (the only good thing to come out of Phantom Menace). The first is depicted in the following photos. I did not have a clear idea for this conversion aside from wanting to make the trukks look like the large vehicle from the board game Thunder Road. It is a design ripped straight out of the Road Warrior, with a centrally mounted jet engine. I had also wanted to make the model's surfaces large enough to accomodate up to 12 or models but that plan has fallen a bit short. Ask me later....
