Looted Wagons 33

Final update before I leave for the weekend.

The hull is basically done now. I haven't gone over board on the sides of the Rhino as the turret will be 100% Orky scratchbuild and I feel it is always better to have a balance the base vehicle and Orky additions, otherwise why loot a vehicle?

So anyway...


On this side I riveted shut the side door (the Boomgun Wagon has no transport anyway). Also added a bit of damage to the door where the Orks had forced it open. Added some damage and repair work to the front of the track unit.


On the other side I discarded the Rhino door and fitted some Orky plates in the hole. I added some detail to the rear of the side and also to the front.

 


Above and below you can see the addition to the front of this sides track unit better, including the repair work to the side/front panels.


Final shot above shows the additions to the front and the track units. I added the stock Rhino lights as well to finish the hull off.

Next week I will tackle the turret.

    1. Hi, sorry for the delay in replying.

      Most of the styrene sheet & strips I use comes from www.modelshop.co.uk as they have a large range available. Hope that helps.

  2. Thank you,

    Your work has inspired me to try my hand at a bit of conversion work, fingers crossed it comes out ok. Though I doubt it will be anywhere near your standard of work may I ask how you go about your designs? Do you plan them on paper or just build them up from your imagination as you go?
    Again thx for your help

    1. Good to hear you are giving it a go.

      Generally I design as I build, though I will have a rough idea in my head as something to aim for.

      However for some commissions and some larger vehicles I may do a mock up first.

      For a more in depth look at the process I use check out the articles I did for Bell of Lost Souls. If you go here http://www.belloflostsouls.net/search?q=meks and scroll down to the three part article called 'One Meks Step...etc' for them.

      Hope that helps.
