Hey guys,
 

I am new to the forum and love the kustomizin' that goes on here, I feel very much at home! :)

I have been working on this project for a while now, and I have yet to share it with you all on here. I will post the most up to date photos and I can link you to some WIP threads if you wanna see them.
 
Here it is:
 
3058-1447328259-131944c450ae16747c7889ba
 
The trailer is magnetised so it can have two halves swapped out, I only have a full flatbed and the tanker attachments made so far though.

I am not sure where I stand on uploading videos from my Youtube channel, so if you could let me know I can show those too :)
 
Thanks for looking!

That is one ambitious project, love it! Is it likely to see the table?

Thanks very much! It is designed to be used in a Gorkamorka scenario, so I am hopeful yes. Unfortunately I don't think it would ever work in a game of 40k... maybe as a piece of scenery! :)

The front has a lot of character and would look great as a trukk. With a small bed on the back, you could easily use the front as one of your trukks in a normal 40K game. Don't worry about the short bed, it will still be obvious as a trukk. In order to keep to the 5.5" length, I had very short beds for a couple of my trukks, shown best in this post

"Where are the taps from?" Squig, they look like they came from the Tehnolog/Pegasus Hobbies Chemical Plant set.

That is a beautiful, beautiful rig you have there, but it still needs a little something on the flatbed. With that big tank of fuel handy, I'd recommend a twin-linked supa-skorcha.

 

Also, can we get some better shots of the engine block please?

Thanks! The taps are made of parts of a Chemical plant by Pegassus Hobbies

Thanks! I don't play 40k anymore, but I will keep that in mind :)

Cheers! You are correct!

Thanks, I have a big skorcha on it all hooked up to the tank, it's probably easier to show you with a video of it:

and here is a video on the engine:

I will try to post images when I get chance, but for now its easier to post these videos.

 

Cheers guys!

Hi Guys,

 

As promised, here are some more details photos of the project go to my gallery over here: https://yaktribe.org...ig-rig-40.2414/

 

Is there a gallery function on here? when I tried to post images on here I got a message saying it's not allowed....

 

Thanks for looking!
