I picked up the Grot Mega Tank at GamesDay 2010. It was available in limited numbers, but I was lucky enough to pick one up, before they sold out. I really do like this model alongside the Grot Tanks. The model is very ship like with battleship style turrets and a prow shaped bow. It is a very ramshackle vehicle and looks like (as it should) if the grots have just thrown it together from parts lying around the battlefield and stuff stolen from a Mek workshop.
After putting the hull together, the next stage was the turrets and the mast.
The turrets are interchangeable with those of the plastic Ork vehicles and the Grot Tanks allowing you an opportunity to convert the Mega Tank into a different looking model. Useful if you were to get two.
You have some choice about which weapons go in which turrets, I did spend a fair bit of time thinking about and trying different options before deciding on the following, in the end I went with Big Shootas, Grotzookas and a Skorcha.
I added the main smoke funnel. This really adds to the nautical feel of the model.
The next stage was to add the mast and rear exhausts. The rear exhausts can be fitted randomly in any fashion you like. I am not too keen on the mast, it also makes the model quite difficult to store and carry.

I have decided not to glue the turrets into position.
The next stage will be the undercoat.
