Ork Fighter Plane

What with the hot weather and work I have kind of lost my modelling Mojo but when this arrived the other day from Puppets War a great little Polish Company that do some great Orky stuff, I broke out the super glue and set to work.

It came like this with the ziplock bag well wrapped in bubble wrap.

I counted 16 resin parts no instructions and no decals, The pour plugs and runners had already been removed from the parts and there were no visible air bubbles and very little flash. There were seam lines but they were easily removed

The main fuselage and wings come as one big chunk.

I really like the pilot- loads of charachter

When I was cleaning up the remains of the pour plugs I uncovered a huge air bubble which I just filled with greenstuff.

The kit guns were fine but I swapped them out with Warhammer items just because I liked the look of them more

There is more weaponry including missiles and a buzz saw but I might just leave it like this as with all the weapnry in place it just looks confusing

Complete with pilot it reminds me of one of the planes from "Catch the Pigeon" :) The pilot does have a touch of Muttly about him

Little bit of work to do on the centre wheel to make it touch the ground or I may remove it altogether - this thing has the look of something that may have been intended for a single use kamikaze mission.

there is a Bomb bay and some bombs but I might cover that over- we'll see.

That looks like a fun kit to do, Pat

Lovely stubbly little plane - small shades of the Polikarpov I-16 about it. That is, until you put in the huge guns.

The Ork pilot is very expressive - should be an interesting paint job. (But then, we do know that you have some experience in painting Orks.....)

Thanks, yeah touch of the Polikarpov about it alright. I gave it a coat of auto primer and will follow up with different shades of red and plenty of rust. Plan on doing a black and white checkered scheme on the nose. No decals with the kit but I'm sure I have some somewhere from the Black Reach set

Wow! This is nuts! Great looking cast and I like all the damage. You'll be able to go to town on the weathering with this one Pat. I like what you have planned for the paint job. That pilot is crazy too! Great features and really animated.

Looking forward to seeing this one come together.

Thanks for posting!
