Hello good folk of the Blogosphere, how goes you?
I have been a model building madman this last week gone. I’ve built two custom Ork Trukks, a custom Ork Deff Dredd, a crazy little Ork tractor thing and FIVE Ork commandos!!!
However, this post isn’t about Orks at all haha.
Well I did set out to build an Ork boat tonight but they ended looking too big for it so I turned it into a high speed pirate skiff for HellGate.
Let’s take a look.
The hull is from a lego kit and works quite well but, at first, it was difficult to get plastic bits to stick to it. I ended up giving the hull a light sand with wet/dry sandpaper and then the bits stuck fast.
The deck cane together so simply and was fun to do. The triangular piece in the front I had to cut into shape from a large square which was fun.
The crew were a lot of fun to build too and I could have kept adding more and more members but didn’t want the skiff to look over crowded.
I’m not calling this model build done yet as I think it might need a few more extra little details here and there.
I’ll show you alllllllll the Ork stuff I’ve built in the next day or two. I’ve had a blast and I’ve been following my butterfly.
I’m back to work on the 28th of this month which I’m very much looking forward to.
I won’t lie to you, lockdown has been tough. I’m a person who can’t be idle or caged haha so it’s taken a bit of a toll. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed it for the most part and keep reminding myself that I’ve been lucky really but I am super excited to get back to work. I need to be kept busy and believe me work is going to be crazzzzyyyyy. It’s spring here and everything is growing super fast so, as a gardener, I’m going to be flat out. Which is exactly the way I like it hehe.
I hope you’re all well.
