Does anyone know of an Ork helicopter kit other than the chinork? Not looking to convert. Need to buy something off the shelf for a large game I am trying to organize at a convention.

Ramshackle Games has a fairly servicable resin model. Would just need the crew substituted for boyz.

Being a builder/collector of plastic models, that was where my mind ( ) went to first. I feel helicopters to be inherently orky to begin with. All the other races have flyers with anti-grav/hover ability. Orks have a Rude Goldberg device that gets the job done, but looks as if it will fall front the sky at any second. Badfang Brassaxe built a group of Westland Wessex' (U.S. version: UH34 Choctaw) that featured some extensive modifications. The main feature was the adding of a toothy gob to the front of the Wessex. You could do this to any helicopter kit (including a Chinook ) quite easily. Add some patch panels, paint and you're done. The other thing that comes to mind is something even more orky, an autogyro! Most kits are 1/72 scale, but the Williams brothers made one in 1/48. One is available on ebay at this moment. Again add some patch panels an orky gubbin or 2, and paint. Good luck!!

More thoughts related to my previous post. I am guessing you want something: a. Reasonably priced; b. Available locally (Do you still have that giant hobby store in Buffalo?); c. Able to haul a squad of boyz. Revell makes a 1/48 Bell UH-1C "Huey" gunship. Cheap ($14-$17), good size, open sides for the boyz, comes with some shootas & rokkits.
P.S. Revell also makes a 1/32 UH-D ($20) which might be the best choice size wise (less dakka than the UH-1C).

Actually this is for something at Adepticon next year. We will probably need at least 3 of them, maybe more. In total we will probably end up with 9 regular Ork flyers and 3-6 other flying things for an aerial battle. We are trying to avoid conversions. They often don't travel as well, and our focus needs to be on getting all of them painted not on converting them.

Id go with looted other flyers and add the right gubbinz for ''warkopta'' status... I was actually thinking of using Dark panzee reavers and turn them into freebooterz ships and use as warkoptaz.. but they arent that great right now as transports it seems.... I put a hold on the purchase till i play test them in 8th. Although now at least they are dedicated transport choices and no longer fast attack slots

Why not just buy some Deffkoptas on eBay?
