The Thundabolt is a great base for a Ork fighta/bomma. It looks like you are off to a solid start. :thumbs Are you planning on reskinning the entire hull? I ask because the top section forward of the cockpit looks a bit odd with it's skin being stock. Thanks for sharing. :yes

I like the plasticard checks (that's far more measurin' than I could do) and the grin on the front! I can't wait to see how this one turns out.

Ooooh nice, looks like you've got some pretty crazy plasticard skills there. What with all the effort you'll be putting into it though, wouldn't it have been easier to build from scratch? So...much...plasticard! :cheers

Great work! Love the tail and the armor plates. Where are you putting the engines? And will the cockpit be open? Personally, I don't much like the Forgeworld models at all, although the Impies are far worse than the Orkz. Thus far, I've seen far better designed and better executed aircraft on this forum than anything Forgeworld has produced yet. IMOHO, of course. Standard ork reply #3

itainteasybeingreen>> the engine is gonna be in the back of the plane, or accually just the exhast, cuz it's a shame to merge the whole engine with all it's nice details inte the hull, so i'll be cutting it of and just use the exhaust in the rear, the cocpit aint gonna be open, though the windows is gonna be crashed and im gonna put alot of details inte that compartment, so dont worry. well i dont know if i can say the same as you about FW, i've got one of theis fighta bommers too, and it's details are amazing, you cant compare it to anything else, just amazing. Grishgrub>> well i like to think that it's easier to build it from a solid base structure. some shapes are too hard to do with plasticard

You already knoo I likes the grin :yes The check-pattern is supersweet too, and will be so much easier to paint (beleive me, I know since I've already done both) I like the work on the tail, but maybe make two "fins" at either end? A bit like on my tail-section (I know I will be reproducing that on my wings). It will make the tail look even more beefy. Since you've got the FW-one too, I'm curious... are the sizes approx. the same?
Roight, any questions?
Yes?
Too bad!
It be time to WAAAGH!

I pretty sure the 1/48 scale ThunderBolt is about the size of the FW Ork Bomba. That why I added the R2D2 SluggaBot to mine. ;)
