I'm still working on it, it needs a driver/steering wheel. I've also got to put a sail on it does anyone have any suggestions for how to make a sail?

Well the body/riding area is already built it's made out of wire screen, if I we're to do it again I'd probably use carbon fiber screen as it's much easier to work with. Rather than make a solid deck I'm letting the screen act like the netting/deck on a catamaran.
That is a great base for a Grot cutta. What kind of materials are you going to be useing for the body/rideing area of the cutta?
Probably no crow's nest for this cutta, the mast is nearly five inches tall and pretty spindly. I'd really have to reinforce it and it would lose some of the land yacht speediness I'm trying to get out of this model. But I am planing on a larger brigantine inspired cutta once I'm done with this one and that one will definitely have a crow's nest.
are you adding a crow's nest?
I'll be using WFB Plastic Goblins as they're cheaper and offer a lot more conversion possibilities. I've got plans for several conversions for this cutta already, but I'll definitely try that idea for a grot clinging on for life to a spar on the bigger cutta I'm planing.
looks pretty good. my question is do u plan on using dem metal grots for ur rig, or something from the WFB range? (as if i havent said this last sentence enough) The night goblin plastics are pretty handy. you could use one with an arrow loaded pose, clip the arrow and bow, and have a grot holding onto a part of the boom on the sail.
I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to describe. The cutta is really too big for a side car. Also I'd like to try to model it on a base so that it's heeled over lifting up one of the rear wheels, and a side car would probably get in the way.
Awesome start. I think it would be really cool to have another (4th) wheel off the side; kind of like a side cart. You could have riggers all over it and a huge cutting arm off of it, kind of like in waterworld.
Now as for a sail thanks for all the suggestions. I'm thinking that a PVA soaked cloth sail will probably be the easiest way to go. Though I'm also thinking that a really thin sheet of green stuff or miliput, say pressed between two sheets of glass then laid out over a form to give it a nice sail shape could work. Any thoughts on this method?

No problem. It's a from Gorkamorka, used by the Rebel Grots. Basically it is a land yacht, a wind and sail powered vehicle. The Rebel Grots couldn't buy or maintain any vehicle with an engine so their vehicles were either grot powered (Big Luggas) or wind powered (Grot Cutta). Here's a picture of the old official GW model.
This may sound like a dumb question but what is a grot cutter?

cool!Are those gears made out of GS?
No they're plastic gears out of on of those pullback toy cars I bought at a dollar store mainly for the wheels. I wish I had that level of green stuff skill.
Now here's my grot skipper.

Here's the plan for the rigging through the blocks and pulleys. I'm thinking of using wire or maybe dental floss. Does anyone have any ideas for how to model rope?
