Starting a Speed Freaks army and decided the trukk models 1)suck and 2) are really small vehicle models. I wanted to give each one a unique appearance (as I'm pretty sure there isn't a STC the orks use), increase the footprint to the size of a rhino, and make some standard boyz driving (resculpted legs not pictured). I've almost finished converting them; just waiting for all my grotz.
Sweet. Now go sneak up on some unsuspecting guardsmen at 90 mph and krump dem all.
God and the soldier, we adore
In times of War, and then no more.
For when the war is ended, and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the old soldier slighted.

My only problem is the railings look flimsy. It's great that they look orky but I'm worried they'll break and need repairing every other game. How solid are they?

And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Funky, orky and awsome. I like how you just extended it from the regular trukk, Truly Mork has blessed you with his insight to come up with that. (As insulting as that sounds it wasn't meant as one.)

sweet man, I love the upper decks, tall vehicles, speed. Sounds orky enough for me, that stuff is awesome

i apoligise i lost control of myself for a second there, i was wondering, where did you get the plasticard from? I live in Brisbane Australia, and have no idea where to find card like the stuff you used.
Strength is knowing your weakness
THIS IS SPARTA!
Thank you for the compliments. Point your friends toward these pics and encourage them to remodel their trukks. The conversions only take a few hours once you get rolling, then if you find they need more detail, you can just add more armoured plates!
where did you get the plasticard from?
I used 2mm and 1mm plastruct brand (though evergreen works just as well) and .5mm from a "beware of dog" sign i picked up from the grocery store. You can order supplies online or find any hobby store that carries model trains.
the railings look flimsy... How solid are they?
And all my railings are very durable. They all have 3 points of contact, and any ones that broke off I added a little crossmember to make sure it didn't happen again. I don't like having to re-glue models either
I like how you just extended it from the regular trukk
I cut and extended the actual trukk base so it wouldn't look lopsided and made sure the original bed was used differently on every model.

Sweet conversions! A billion times better than the lame orginal trucks!

Those are absolutely insane conversions. That is to say, they're beautifully orky.

Clouseau: No. Fortunately I was saved by the darkness.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: So what we need is more light.
