Let me rescue an old project, now that I'm travelling abroad and have no chance to paint. I got an Ork Trukk, but of course I was not going to build just the same trukk everybody has! Tha idea of having a ship on wheels had appealed me for a long time. There are a number of them over the internet, in a much larger scale, but I was not able to build (neither to store!) a ship the size of the Titanic. I was aiming for something humble, but different.
I begun with the normal chassis:
|Yup, I know, doesn't look like a ship, give me a moment...|
Then the quarterdeck:
|No? Not a ship yet? Hmmm...|
I used the original front part from the kit to build the prow. I cut it into two pieces and re-positioned them this way:
|Upside down, it also helps for my purposes|
|Beginning to look like something?|
I needed some cardboard for the body of the forecastle:
|I always keep my works on a budget...|
And then some other pieces from the sprues to the quarterdeck:
|Looks easy (it is), but takes hours and hours|
Let's get some paint on that!
|Orky style! Plenty of dirty colours|
Painting some pieces in advance before glueing them allows me to go on; otherwise I cannot reach them later.
|Aaarrr! Periskop' up!|
|Still unfinished here, but you get the idea|
|The wire was part of the idea of the helm controlling the rudder. Or something|
Sooo... This is what this was looking like at this stage:
|Now I guess it is looking better|
Well, this is it for today. Let me pick up the rest of the pics and I'll show you the final results in a few days ;)
For the moment I'm still on a job trip in Germany, tomorrow I'll be travelling to Belgium for the rest of the week, but I hope I'll get some more time to keep on blogging!
Hope you like this!
