:thumbs nice to see those koptas put to good use! I did something similar but it came out a trike, which is way less massive (and cool) than you quad version. Those wheels look very nice there! ;) The speeder is cool IMHO, I'd enclose the cab and the front monowheel isn't a bad idea. -dammit, they wired me into a kan! Now I'll go on rampage...waaaghh!-

Honestly the ski idea isn't bad, i just might make it two skis in the front instead of a mono one. Just food for thought there. looking good though.

Agreed, the mono-ski idea is great, what about substituting the small trakk set from one of the current warbikes for the ski?

For true Orkiness, you could also perhaps consider adding a propeller at the back like some of the early prop-driven snow vehicles shown here.

Luv the quad kopta buggies :thumbs

Decided to crack on with the ski idea and just go will it. Bunged the rokkits on as well to make the overall shape more obvious.

The first one:

Trying a dual-ski one:

Another mono-ski but protruding further this time:

The next challenge is how to create the drivers/gunners.

I do like the duel ski better, honestly. I think it loooks a bit better....keep it up. As far as for the gunners and drivers..I wish I could help but I am out of ideas at the momment. Maybe if you had old trukk drivers but I think they would be small though..good luck!

dual ski...IMHO it fits better. Maybe not too apart from each other though...

Great idea with the quad buggies. I really like the look of 'em. I'm not sure if you plan on keeping the wheels attached to them the way they are - with the big rectangular piece of plasticard - but they'd look even better with a proppa suspension. Rosputnik, I love what you've done with those landspeeders. I may have to loot that idea - except using wheels in the front as well as the back.
Full speed ahead and damn the consequences!
