Project Outline: The current Watrakk model
by GW is a bit 'dated' to say the least. I'll be upgrading
this thing with some new crew and other gubbins.
the stock crew models for this vehicle are the old Gorkamorka/2nd
edition size Orks, I needed to bring them in line with the
used the skull front from one of the new warbikes to give
this thing a more menacing look. The rider is also composed
mostly of 'biker bits', although the arms of the new bikers
don't fit on this old model. I had to do a bit of chopping
to get some arms that would work.
the gunner, the torso, head, and legs are from the Standard
Boyz sprue, the Rokkit Launcha is from the plastic Killa
Kan set, and the arms are from a battlewagon gunner.
The grot rigger is from the Warbike kit
were a few modifications to the chassis that had to be made
to get the new crew to fit. I built a new set of controls
for the rider so his feet could reach the pedals :)
I also added a small spacer to the underside of the rokkit
launcha. The detail on the white bits is a bit washed out
in the picture.
also added a resin ammo box and an armor plate to add a
bit more detail. I'm still messing with the lighting on
my new camera setup, so the white bits are a bit washed
out here too.
left the components as seperate pieces, to be glued together
by the customer after painting. It can be a bit of a pain
to get a brush into all the nooks and crannies if it's all
Since the customer wants to paint the model himself, this
thing is pretty much done.
