    Ork truck question

    Hi!

    I'm currently assembling the Ork truck model and get the impression that the driver can be placed on the right hand side of the drivers compartment/cockpit.
    The instructions shows the driver to be mounted to the left and that is also what I've seen on all pics, but I want to know if anyone have built it with the driver to the right, or if this screws things up with the rest of the assembly?

    Thanks for respone!

    My friend the Dire Avenger, claimed that putting the driver to the right would make it a british trukk and that the driver probably would read "The Evil Sun" newspaper while eating his breakfeast... (As opposed to american orks, who of course reads "The New Ork times")

    I think you can place him in both sides.
    I'm not so sure now that I think about it, but I seem to remember one of my own trukkdrivers is placed in the right side, while the rest is in the left side.
    As i said: I'm not sure, but I'll go home tonight and see if I can dig them up and have a look.

    If all else fail, you could try to dry fit it.

    I followed the instructions and found that the driver did not fit nicely on the left side as was instructed. I actually had to do a bit of trimming and filing to get him to fit there. Afterwards I realized he'd of fit much better on the right and in my next Trukk I plan to place him there.

    In the end he is an Ork.......so really.......does the position of the driver REALLY effect the driving potential??


    As long as he can ram into where ever he is going....

    But on My Trukks, I normally do have them on the right side, but thats for conversions that happen to the Trukk as I build it.

    No, not really. I just wanted my trukk too look at least a little different from those seen in the WD...
