Use the seasrch function like this

Plenty of threads to be found searching for 'bomba'

If you're looking for 28mm stuff, there certainly are a heap of threads. winkingOrk.gif

For Epic, Quase proxied these. They look pretty darn good.

eBay can be your friend as well. I picked up about 9 Fighta Bommas for the fabulous price of $12.

Or, as its Epic you want, try 1/300th scale wargames aircraft such as these from Scotia Grendle - try WWII american carrier aircraft such as the Dauntless or Devastator - 1.25 a piece.

Chop off the prop and paint it red I say thumbs.gif

Scotia also makes a MiG 15, which has very similar look to the existing fighta bomma.

Great sugestion !!

Any ideas on how to build a fighter bommer that small?

I love the idea of using the dauntless dive bommer ! with a small amount of conversion it could look very good !!

Thanks...

well it really all depends on how good you are with greenstuff or plasticard. I was thinking of using some plastic tube as the body of the planes and then make wing out of plastic sheets. maybe need a bit of greenstuff for the nose of the plane. I wouldn't worry to much about detail just get the basic shape of a plane and your should be fine.

No I haven't made any. I don't play orks in epic, as of yet anyways..lol

Good luck if you can make it work.

i have couple of Crison Skies planes as fighta-bommaz- you have to remember they are on the big side though, thats the only problem as one was spot one, but one was just far too big comparing to others.

Yeah. The Crimson Skies planes should be perfect, and many of the are very Orky.

I made my Ork Fightas and Fighta Bombas from the Trumpeter range. They're 1/350 scale planes for the decks of Aircraft Carriers etc.



Led by Da Red Barrun of course! winkingOrk.gif


I use them for Aeronautica primarily but am just getting into Epic and they work perfectly there as well! CoolOrkDark.gif
