Bits arrived from eBay last week for a new insane (mini) project... a Fighta for my Rogue Trader Ork army. I spent an evening last week putting together this model and sticking gunz on every possible surface...
The base model is a Testors 1/48 kit of the "GeeBee Racer", the air racer from the '30s that was infamously difficult to fly because of its stubby proportions and huge engine, something I thought would massively appeal to Orks ;-)
The pilot head, the gunz and all the other bits are from modern 40K Ork sprues. I like the way that it all came together. The basic shape of this aircraft has always appealed to me for some reason, but unlike the Polikarpov I-16 that I converted to FuturKom use I left this one piston-powered... it is "Rogue Trader" after all!
It's on the painting desk now so should be done this week.
