I'm a tea man at home, coffee when I'm out. Unless it's a workman's cafe type of place. Best cuppa I've had away from home was in Australia, long way to go though  ;D

Decals my @r$e!

I suspect one of these may be a coffee machine in it's spare time.
I have not had a chance to work on the mysterious machine of mystery since Saturday morning. You will have to wait for updates. Alas. Woe unto the house of Whiffery.

The Grot Bots are done!


And the mysterious Thing is becoming less mysterious...


Also, took some photos of my whole Orky army. More one the blog.

I love the buggies. Makes me want to get one of those Roden Rolls-Royce armoured cars and hot-rod it... :wacko:

Cheaper to scratch build something.  The bodies are all flat armour plate apart from the turret.  You could use a 1/25 pick up chassis.

A GMC 6-71 sticking out of the hood and big chrome headers swooping out from under the hood? LOVE that idea!

Somewhere I've got a 1/24 kit of a 1962/3 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, the single headlamp version, that may get that treatment. Oh yes, big, bulged rear wheel arches with monster drag slicks on the rear wheels too.  ;) ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

You could start a trend of hot-rodding wheeled armour. Imagine an 8x8 APC or armoured car with FOUR different sizes of wheel and the suspension 'adjusted' to be progressively taller, front to back... :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

If the basic kits weren't so expensive I could do that to a Stolly, but with a BIG engine in the load bed!

Which reminds me that I just MSUT rebuild my RR Merlin powered GMC van with the exhausts poking out of the roof.............

Do it in 1/76th with an S&M one. You could cut'n'shut the cab roof lower too: with a row of chrome spotlights on the front, that'd look quite the thing.... ;D

I've been thinking about ways to hot-rod the RR Armoured Car while keeping the turret ring horizontal, and I've just realised something. You have that empty load-bed behind the fighting compartment, right? Well that could accommodate MUCH bigger rear wheels, without tilting the chassis. What you'd have to do is cut the back of the chassis off and re-mount it higher, with a transfer box to take the drive up to it. You'd lose the rear doors of course, but you'd still have the side ones. you could easily fit a V8 in the existing engine bay: the original straight six looks a bit lost in there as it is. I'd be inclined to leave all the covers off... :wacko:

Waaagh Snaggatoof has now returned from running around Cancon failing to win anything. I have returned to school and can no longer work on mysterious orky things all day, but I have done so with a vast haul from the second hand stall, including over 60 boyz, 15+ nobs, 12 deff koptas, two warbosses... and a game called Warhamster Rally.
Progress has naturally slowed; yet last night was The Descent of the Hobbyists unto The Hoodling's Hole. Which meant I had some time. And this happened.




Let the speculation begin!
