Bravo mate, you have successfully created what I believe is one of the coolest ork models ever made, excellent modeling/painting execution, it looks like a diorama you would see at a games day event.
Kudos, and please do continue, this is incredibly inspiring and has given me many ideas for my force
looking forward to more updates :D

:cheers

The above praise pretty much sums it up. The video of the furnace working brings the whole model to life and raises the bar so high that us mere mortals can only gape in awe... true kudos indeed.

In the meantime, please keep coming back to us with updates! More frequently would be good to feed the "hunger"! LOL

I'll try hehe :)

I've been trying to finish off detailing the superstructure as its the one thing left that's still bare plastic.

Main job was doing the interior of the Killa kan workshop...

Thank you for the comments :)
Just a small update of progress. I managed to get the Superstructure primed at the weekend, so I've been able to get started on the painting.

Here are a few shots of the Kan workshop... Not really the best bit of painting I've ever done, it was harder painting in a box than I had imagined hehe. Also tricky attempting a subtle OSL effect on a flat surface with acrylics and a brush. Anyway I think once the 2nd Kan is sitting in there along with the Grot the walls will work just fine as a background...

Finally here is a sneaky preview of the front entrance/windows of the superstructure. Now he is stuck in place I need to reconstruct the ork's fingers...

The Ork Warship had its first test in water to determine the required amount of ballast and to put the RC and smoke unit through it's paces.

Here's a little video of it having a splash about in the bath... enjoy :)

Put simply I'm building a radio controlled model boat from a kit which I got especially for the purpose of converting in to an Ork Warship. Kind of like a floating Ork maritime diorama.

Put simply, Fan-zoggin-tastic, I hadn't really appreciated how big 900mm was 'til now, just a shame no-one makes those smoke units that'll put out black smoke.
There's no more space for choppa'z at the top of the thread so have another couple here :choppa :choppa

Awesome, it floats, smokes and propells itself along...and is seriously Orky. Absolutely magnificent. My only critique, and its only because i know hopw good your rusting skills are, is that perhaps the Hull is too grey and perhaps needs some rusty edges to it around some of the joins. It still seriously rocks, but perhaps breaking up the grey could make it rock even more...if that is possible. :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs

Absolutely, one side is already weathered with rust and other damage to the paintwork... all of the footage taken just happens to show the unfinished side hehe. There is still a load of painting left to do, not to mention adding more crew to the rear 2/3 of the ship and other little details like ammo crates etc.

Not entirely sure at this stage, it certainly wont be speed boat fast, but it should move at a good pace for the type of boat.

I'm planning to have a couple of rear facing gun emplacements up on the gantry at the back either side of the hydraulic claw, something along the lines of the gunner in the Ork Trukk kit. Also in the two openings in the back I was going to have some kind of depth charge launcher in one side - think barrels on a launching rack, and something else in the other.
