Here are some more 15mm Ork Scifi Scratchbuilds.I don't know whether to rename the post to A tale of a 1000,000 rivets or How to bring on early senility :):):) .
My fingers are hurting & I can't see straight with all those dastardly rivets. Still scratch building is 100% worth it, it's both fun & rewarding , though I don't think it can turned into a job as it is very time consuming .The models here took around 48hrs to do on & off, more than the previous lot as a matter of fact.All were made with Solid 1mm card ( which i get from Dark Chocolate packing), wood dowel wheels, plastic sprues,flat cables & other bits.The vehicles had to have their undercarriage literately nailed into the wooden body using shortened 3/4" wood nails to make them sturdy.
Just one thing , the best plastic I found to work with is GW sprues.Light grey, soft to cut ,doesn't bung up your drills much but only found in squarish cross sections , rarely round.
Hope you like them.I left them unpainted so they can be used as inspiration.If any one needs help or advise you can mail me on email@example.com .
Another thing ,English is not my native tongue, therefore some phrases or jokes might not make sense but I'll try my best to make myself understood.
|These remind me off the Wacky races. Have to find Muttley.|
|Steam powered, includes piston ,large fly wheel & Steam whistle,off course.|
|Trainee driver :):):) Anti roll over side wheels, I can just imagine it wobbling to & fro.|
|An never before seen Quadro Ork Dread|
|Complete with rope ladder|
|I used nylon window fly screen to do the floor|
|The red ladder came from plastic sheets used to strengthen mortar/plaster on walls.Don't know what they call it but it comes in sheets & is nailed to walls prior to plastering.|
|Added card pieces to strengthen build|
|Had to literally drill & nail into plywood.This model came heavier than the top one|
