Trukk #4, teaser 3

As it turns out, this Trukk is taking longer then the cab-over scratch build.

But here is another teaser...

I'm still not even close to done.

Teaser - Trukk #4

Work has started on Trukk #4 already.

It may not seem like much, until you realize the firewall on the stock kit isn't flat, but sits farther back on the driver side.  This was a bit of work to get a strait firewall.  I also removed the scoop from the engine..

As always, more to come.

Custom Ork Trukk #3 build complete!

This one was a LOT more work then the last two, but was totally worth it. 

First, I extended the rear frame just enough to hold the third axle.  I then cut the front and middle of the frame to shorten it up.  I carefully spaced the 3rd axle using the leaf springs and drive shaft from the other kit so it was spaced just right.

The biggest issue was the engine, I simply didn't have enough room for it. I butchered it and made it fit into the space I had, so it only just looks like an engine enough to call it good.

The doors were almost an afterthought, and now I'm glad I did. That way I can take the driver out to paint it separately and then glue him in place later.

I decided to leave it a flatbed because I thought it looked cool and that way I can use it for other a flakkatrukk later if I want.

I didn't magnetize anything because I figure the primer and paint in the hinges will keep the doors closed, and the cab does not really need one at all.

Anyway, pics!

Teaser #2

There is a LOT of work going into this.  But it's worth it!

Ork Buggy complete!

Finished another project.  The Ramshackle Games Badger conversion Buggy.

This was an experiment in the grey camo, and I'm not entirely happy with the results. I need to swap the colors around a bit.  I'll figure it out.
