Da Rust Bukket 9000

So I ordered this old trukk from eBay, wow it’s small..

Stripped it using fairy power spray in my ultrasonic cleaner, came out really well. Had to scrub a little with an old toothbrush though.

Forgot to take pics of the scratch built bits, gah!

I used 2mm plasticard and plastic glue to make a rough rectangle shape, for the frame. Using hobby knife I cut the bed of the trukk in half and widened using more plasticard.

The weld marks and reinforced bars were made from miliput, you could use greenstuff if you like. The engine was from fox-box this helps it go fastaaah!

Since I’m going for bad moons, here’s it in yellow.

Bit bright at the moment, don’t worry we will rust this so it looks like a racing scrap yard.

I painted metal sections (guns, ram, engine, wheel hubcaps and barrels), tyres and the nuts and bolts (yes metal, but took so long I thought they deserved thier own section).

Then a wash all over in sepia wash.

Got the exhaust, guns and tyres from zinge industries.

Right, time for da rusty look. Using vallejo pigments, the rust set. I built up the rust effect in layers, dabbing the pigments on from darkest up to lightest.

It was sealed using some white spirits and left to dry. Once fully dried I used vallejo satin varnish through my airbrush on the whole model. And here is the end result.

Have ordered some bits from Puppetswar they have an awesome selection. Large turret, with a plasma cannon (zzap gun), rocket launcher and a long cannon, which will be my kill cannon. Got the wheels from fox-box on now.

Needs more rivets…

The wheel covers have helped with the over all look, I think we could use some more orky-ness on the roof.

Ork 40k Battlewagon build: Part 1

Having a go at a custom battlewagon. Always fancied trying some ‘Kustom Buildz’.

Based on the 3529 ZIS-5 russian truck model kit 1:35 by ZVEZDA.

After getting past the basics, clipping of sprue and gluing the main parts together I finally got to the fun part.

Kustom modsz boyz!!

The exhaust is meant to be an engine intake from a set of engines from fox-box.co.uk , engine itself will be further down.

Used 2mm thick plasticard and chopped it roughly with clippers, the bolts are just cheap cotton ear buds chopped with a hobby knife into small sections.

Da Ram, fur rammin’.

Just got creative here, same processes as before. Chopped edges with clippers and bent the pointy bits in random directions. Used a small cross head screwdriver to drill through roughly for some billet holes.

So far all together, fox-box.co.uk engine in the front.
