Ahoi again!

i was asked to do a tutorial for my rokkit launchaz... ( never expected this ... )
here it is...

first step: stuff you need....

- PlasticRod: 1mm( rivits and trigger) and 2mm (PR)
- Plastic tube: 3mm ( best would be with a 2mm hole) (PT)
- PlasticCard: 1mm ( gunshield, ramp, hand protection,...), 0,5 mm not shown ( band around the energy thingy) (PC)
- Guitar string
- package-band or something with structure... ( i used a metal structured one....)
- Sprue ( the fat one between two regular sprues...)
- the ork Axe Arm
- Ammo ( rokkit from ┬┤umie tankbitz work proppa) i choose a sharpened 5mm Plasticrod wit some accessoires

second step: cutting in right size....

1st. row:
- PT about 1,5mm ( a bit squeezed)
- backplate about 8x 1,1mm (package band,....)
- Frontplate 9x1,3mm (PC 1mm)
- spikes cut from 1mm PC
- 1,5- 2mm length of the 2mm PR
- stripe of 1mm PC about 2mm wide (length will be fixed by the ammo type.... )
- ammo

2nd. row:
- PT: 1,5mm, 5mm
- rivit from the axe
- dice from sprue ( just cut a bit 2,5x2,51x1,5)
- PR 1mm: about 4mm (trigger)
- hand protection: use the 1mm PC, cut about 1 cm and band after 3-4mm
- PC 1mm: 2x5mm (thingy on the top)
- 2x PC 1mm: 1,5x3mm (grey in picture)
- handle: 2mm PR about 2,4cm lenght and bend after 1,8cm

3rd. row:
- ring thing from the axe
- 2 pieces of the large Sprue about 1cm
- squeezed PT about 1-1,5mm
- Band of 0,5mm PC 1,5mm wide

third step: bring things together....

1st. row:
- backplate+ frontplate,
- add the spikes on the frontplate
- bend the stripe and cut it fitting to your ammo

2nd. row:
- slip over the 5mm piece of the tube till the bended place ( over the handle)
- slip over 1,5mm piece (end of the handle)
- glue the rivit with the 2x5mm thingy

3rd. row:
- glue the two sprue parts and cut it regular

fourth+ fifth step: get the form....

i think picture explains what to do.... just glue!
Posted Image

sixth, seventh and eighth step: time to finish....

- glue three parts
- add rivits ( cut from 1mm PR)
- add Guitar string
- DONE :cheers

Oh, book marked, I think this will actually come in handy to those who are less experienced in making things, not converting, nearly anyone can do that, just actually making things from near scratch, thanks. Keg

Orks even make more interesting corpses than Imperials. We're just that good.

Book marked, although, I never really liked the old 'uns, I guess they would be good on some kommando orks though, Kinda reminds me of rpgs. I prefer the ol' bazo000oka styley Shade
Of course all my topics are pic heavy, you know why? because people don't want to open 12 hyperlinks a page! it stands to reason

Thanks, Narziss, for this tutorial. It should make building the new tankbusta squads much easier!

Great thread! The final product is uber-cool. I plan to do a unit of tankbustas and the nob just might need to get one of your launchas. Thanks.
Ork Psychology and morale is directly linked to the number of boyz around them at any given time. Just like frat boys, only with more Dakka...

I like the idea of it being under construction. "...and now witness the power of this fully armed and operational... STOMPA!"

Top notch--my own rokkit conversions are looking a bit plain now. But thanks to you, I also now have some ideas of how to go back and add some good looking gubbinz. Thank you for the 101!
