WIP - Ork Looted Tank

At this year's ModelZona I picked up the blow pictured kit for $10. I thought the aesthetic on the box screamed ORK! So I thought I'd use it to make a looted tank.


After assembling the kit I started to see a bit of where I was going to go with it. I want to replace the top hatch with a larger one. I envision a large ork with a WWII style helmet and goggles. I also want to build in a view port for the driver on the front of the tank's hull.


The treads needed a lot of looting. I used styrene scrap along with pointed hex nuts from MENG.


There's still a lot more work to be done but I'm feeling good about it so far. I think it needs a good wacky antenna, some beefy exhausts, and a nice large dozer blade.
