Kitbashed Ork Fighta #1
With the release of the Apocalypse supplement to Warhammer 40k I wanted to beef up my Ork army but with the impending change of codex I didn't want to spend time and money making something that may be invalidated. I'd been planning on making a couple fightas for a long time and this seemed like the perfect time to do it. I pulled a 1/32 scale P-40 out of my pile of kits (thrift stores and yard sales are wonderful things) and started putting together the basic shape. The hard part was figuring out the cockpit, once I trimmed out the plastic and got an ork to fit everything else went easy. I didn't want to use propellers so I modified the engines with other parts from my bits bins. Some plasticard, some putty, a bit of scratchbuilt weaponry and a ton of rivets and it was ready for paint. I built a stand out of styrene tubing and made magnetic attachment points for the various bombs.
