Welcome to Librarium Online!
I need some help with the directions for putting together a trukk, I got a trukk sprue but the directions confue me, especially step 3. Could you post some pics of the bottom of you're trukks? And is it just my lack of IQ or do other people have this problem?
I seem to recall those instructions being particularly bad. Be careful when doing the drivers seat, its easy to screw up, as are all the rails. As for photos, my trukk ended up as fuel for several other projects so I can't help there, sorry.

I converted all my trukks out of a trukk kit and some rhinos (also used the parts to pimp out a battlewagon), so I don't have any pictures of the normal assembled model, sorry.
However, I do have a copy of the instructions. What part are you having difficulty with?
In step 3, you take the main chassis of the trukk and glue the three axles to it (where the wheels are going to attach).
Basically, after that you glue on the wheels, flat bed where the Orks will stand, and then the driver/passenger compartment. Indeed, the most difficult part is getting the driver and passenger/shooter to fit right, but it'll still look good even if you fake it a bit.
The new trukk kit, as well as the battlewagon, are indeed tough models to put together. They really wanted to give them an 'assembled piecemeal out of scrap parts' look, and by giving them so many separate parts, they definitely achieved that.
Just let me know if there's anything specific I can help with.

I don't have my trukk on me at the moment, but I'm in the process of building it, so if you want I can take at look at my instructions tomorrow evening and check how I made it (largely ignoring the ins, oops!), and send you my method? It seems to be working so far, although I tend to paint parts before gluing it all together, makes it easier with multi-part models I find. Also I've liberated a couple of parts to turn a DA Rhino into a looted wagon, but I know how they should have fixed on. Makes it that bit more Orky if it doesn't look like it should. That's my excuse anyway, and I'm sticking to it! Let me know if I can be of any help, or if you wanted it sooner than that.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.
Okay, I used y'alls advice and just fudged up some of it, Like addnig doors t hde my messed up driver, o now it looks pretty orky, thanks
