I have an Ork army, but for some variety want to be able to use them as Speed Freaks too.
Problem is I need Trukks, lots of Trukks. What I have instead is a pile of old plastic battlewagons.
Thanks to some inspiration here - including MoK's excellent tutorial and someone (I cont remember who) posting great flak-wagon conversions, I decided to have a go at my first scratch-build.

Apologies for the crappy phone pics.

What a great conversion, I admire your efforts to do all that plasti card work, you must of mastered
the production line technique ;)

Look forward to seeing these painted, maybe cut some orks off their bases and glue them on the
back to add a bit of drama ?

Regard epic

Nice work! Really inspiring! Another thing you can do with these old vehicles is cut out the middle section (essentially making them shorter) and use them as buggies.

Cheers,
