Hiya there, landlubbas! Let's finish up da ship!
|Jayne's Ork Cousin ;)|
Well, this is how it was coming along by now:
|What shall we do with the drunken gretchin...|
I also added a cannon below the keel:
A view from another angle:
|'Ard to starboar'!!|
Ok, you see. The problem was that there was a huge empty space on the main deck. I couldn't allow that. I thought of a mainmast which I could put in and out. Of course that would make it impossible to add the rigging, but I thought it would be enough for me.
I added a maintop made of cardboard with some greenstuff rivets.
|On a budget, remember?|
This is the piece on the deck that will make the mast stand:
After some hours (A lot of 'some' hours!) I finally got this:
|Aaaarrr! Board 'er!!|
|Hur hur, bring da grog!|
|We're comin' for ya!|
Here you can see the mast when not standing:
|For storage purposes|
I would have loved to add a forestay, a backstay and shrouds, but I couldn't afford that as I would have never been able to storage that in any place. However, I declare myself satisfied with this, I believe it looks Orky enough and different from the usual Trukk I'm used to see on the boards.
When browsing back to get these pics, I've re-descovered some other Orky goodies, so I may post them over here. I'll decide it on the next days, tomorrow I'm coming back home, so this weekend I'll try to put my hands on some of the pending stuff I still have on my workbench...
See you in a few days! :)
