I would agree about using an orange. I like using the dried bits on the edge of the pot btw my car saw that last post and has gone off in a sulk.

My cats are completely unconcerned with me looking at other cats on the internet. However, if I spend too much time on the computer and not enough time paying attention to them, they let me know. Insistently.

Keep at it, you are close. Looks very good to me. The only thing hitting slightly off to me is the checker plate, the rivets are nicly rusted, but the plate looks very clean. Not sure. And again I say I am not an expert so don't go listening to me.

That harpoon gun is a neat idea, could count as a Grabba claw. I like the rust spots on the blue panel too, care to share how you did that?, I have a similar blue on my ork vehicles and have been looking for something to break it up a bit. cheers. P.S your kitty cats are adorable

@RobZie
My cats thank you for the compliment. The harpoon gun is originally from GorkaMorka. I just swapped the head with one from an Ork boar boy and added magnetized mounting gubbins.

As for the blue panel...


I used pics like this one for inspiration..
http://i50.tinypic.com/21oa141.jpg

I initially painted the entire panel with either Lightning Bolt Blue or Ultramarine Blue (I don't remember which) and then put on spots of Electric Blue (I own some really old paints). Then in the center of each of the light blue spots, I put on Typhus Corrosion and brushed on Ryza Rust over that.


The rivets and streaks on the treadplate were done with the Macharius Solar Orange (I think). Then I had at it with some washes. I think at first I only used either the Brown or Armour washes (or both).


But eventually I ended up trying all the washes. Basically I slapped on stuff to see what it would look like.


As for the end result, I think I overdid the washes on the blue part, although it looks good and grimy now. I like how the long top panel came out, and the right panel looks really corroded (click on the pic and zoom in to see the detail. You might even see a couple of cat hairs that ended up being part of the model).

Thanks and good luck.

Trukk number 4 is now built.




Like my other trukks, the bumper and glyph plate are magnetized.




Silk approves of this trukk.


I will prime and paint the components before final assembly. But that won't be until this summer when it's warm enough to use spray primer on my balcony.

Love it all.

Harpoon looks brilliant (stealing that)

No 4 Looks perfect. Many people try to make the trukks look bigger and go OTT, you seem to have mastered it.

Really love the car, does it have a Cat-alitic Converter so the rest of us are safer?

Cat-alitic Converter... That's pawsitively horrible.

Static electricity and cat hair. *Sigh*


At this point most of it is just held together with blu-tac. I cut it down the middle to widen it a wee bit.


The 40K aesthetic seems to be squat and broad. I've seen a number of different opinions on which scale model vehicles works best with 40K, and for me the answer is none of them. At least as built. For smaller vehicles, like this car, I've found that 1/43 scale works, but the vehicle needs to be widened a bit. For larger vehicles, like the truck in the background, 1/35 works, but I lower the vehicle by using smaller tires and cutting the cab and hood so that it sits lower on the frame.


The driver seems to have leaned back too much. Right now he has that little old lady look.


Whipped up a quick mock-up in MSPaint of my plan for the front.

Well, now I see it too.

So my original plan was for it to be a Departmento Munitorum (hence the Munitorum symbol) vehicle with a driver and bodyguard in the front seat and a senior Munitorum clerk in the back. However, last night I got to thinking and I may change it to a company car for driving around a senior official in a merchant house. Corporations are going to factor into the fluff of the setting for my GorkaMorka/Necromunda-ish games, and a corporate official makes for a better objective.

A while ago one of my local hobby shops had a sale on several 1/35 Chinese Jiefang CA-30 military trucks for $10 each. So I bought them all. Some will become civilian tractor-trailers or cargo trucks for use as objectives in 40K or GorkaMorka-ish scenarios. Some will be up-armoured and used by the PDF as a Chimera stand-in. At least a couple will be looted by Orks, and likely one or two will end up as scenery (wrecked from failed conversion attempts).

So the first pic is the stock version held together mostly by blu-tac to show the size as compared to the second pic, which is the cut down version (smaller tires, cab and bed lowered).


Another comparison of the stock vs the cut-down version against my widened 1/43 scale car.


I think the cut-down version looks closer in scale to my poor unfinished Necromunda figure (Old Zeke with his one-in-a-million boltgun).

The top row of tires are from Zinge Industries (for my military vehicles) and the bottom row are GW (for my civilian vehicles). The small tires will be used on cars and light trucks, the medium size ones will be used on large trucks and tractor-trailers, and the large ones will be used on big honkin' military vehicles (a future build where I de-orkify a battlewagon and turn it into a military 8x8).


Although, IF (big if) I could make a civilian style tire the same size as Zinge's large tire, I could use it for my tractor-trailers and the middle size tires would be used for light duty trucks. This pic shows how the large tire makes the truck look.


Oh look. A fifth wheel (and not the ridiculously small one from the Ork trukk).


And with a 1/43 scale trailer.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Here is another civilian car (because I can't just work on one, two or even five projects at once).

The first pic is for you.


The stowage is just held on with blu-tac for the moment as I get an idea of how I want it to look. The finished product will of course have ropes and chains holding everything on.


I see this as being something of a Mad Max type car for wasteland nomads.


I'll have to ding it up a bit too, add some bullet holes and such.

This looks brilliant, and looks quite fitting. Got to say though, 2CV could never ever be considered seriously, except in "For your eyes only", the bond film.

So I'm torn between just putting a bunch of stowage on it and cutting a hole in the roof and mounting a heavy stubber. I plan for it to accompany a large water truck and some bikers as itinerant peddlers travelling through the wastes. Opinions?

Looks brilliant, most 2CV's had a folding cloth roof here. So cutting out the roof and sculpting a cloth roll at the back would work well. Also could still have stowage on bonnet.
