hi there guys....long time lurker, first time waaagher.

so i love speed freaks....the fasta' da betta!!! anyhow i got tired of fish'ead and decided to make my waagh.. i just finished my first 40 ork boyz for my army and just started a series of koptas converted. this is my first plasticard piece EVER.... and might i say i love plasticard..... my thumbs dont like x-acto knives though. hehe.

let me know what ya think. as for the buzzsaw going down lower than the skids..... the best way for an ork to land a kopta is kareening into the ground anyway. so :P

I like the nose, but that tube to the buzzsaw is to smooth. add some bitz and plasticard plates to it!

Wow, I really like the profile of that kopta. Well done :thumbs Can you try get the light from an other angle? Then it might be easier to comment on your build. As of now, it's a bit hard to see the details...

Frankly, the buzzsaw is WAY over the top. And I know that Orks are way over the top, but I think it's excessive even for them. I think it needs to be running parallel to the deffkopta's body, not perpendicular.

All I can do is agree with the others on 'plating' the tube a little, and congratulate you on making one the nicest looking Buzzsaws I've seen... Nasty way to go... :dakka

Looks like a proffesional Racing Kopta! You should have a whole squad, or team, with Firesquig brand Fungus Beer sponsor. They could be part of the Fewaaaghi (like Ferrari if you don't get it) Racing Team.

so's i got my second one done. this time i just started cuttin the crap out of plasticard and got this. i really love the mouth on this ....and the jaws will "count as" a buzzsaw.... i can just imagine em' snapping really fast. of course inside the mouth are the rokkit launchas which i see poppin out in between eatin some stupid 'umies or the panzee. cant wait to start my third one

on a side note, i managed to cut my finger wif' a pair of blunt scissors.... guess i'm on my way to bein' an ork!

Wow, that's down right brutal. Love it :cheers One suggestion though, maybe you could add some pistons inside the 'mouth', to sorta explain how that massive jaw is actually snapping at targets?

so i got the last one done and am pretty happy with it, i took the advice of you guys and added some stuff to the buzzsaw as well. i noticed as i went that the koptas kept gettin' bigguh and pointia' i see no problem with that. hehehe. i plan on using the jaws as "counts as" buzzsaws. i have not added any pistons as of yet, mainly because i have a huge plasticard order in and am waiting on them. i plan on beginnin' the paintin process this evening.


ere' we go!

Makes it rusty and rotten! if it ain't scrap-tastic, it ain't propa! :D Seriously, nice original work. ...wish mine looked this good... 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

Those are some nice conversions. :thumbs I think the buzzsaw should be horizontal though. Right now it looks more like it's part of the propulsion system than a weapons system.
