January 2008 saw the release of the new Ork Trukk. I had expected to see some Forge World conversion kits relatively quickly, however though we saw the Flakk Wagon at GamesDay 2008, it wasn’t until July 2009 that we saw the first actual Forge World variant Ork Trukk kit, the Ork Half Trakk. What you get in the box, a complete shrink wrapped plastic Trukk kit and a bag of resin. As you might expect the resin consists of the wheels, tracks and wheels for the tracks. There is also a new engine which replaces the plastic one included with the kit.
So the model goes together quite well with the plastic Trukk components. You could of course not use the provided resin front wheels and use the plastic ones you get with the Ork Trukk. What is nice is that as you get the whole Trukk kit, so as a result, you get lots of spare wheels to use with other models or for conversions.
I had very little warpage with this model, though as you can see there is a gap in the tracks.
The only problem that was (probably) shrinkage with the tracks, so I used some plastic rod to cover the gap in the tracks.
I do like the resin engine provided, much better than the plastic one. You kind of wish Forge World would make some Ork conversion packs with engines and the like.
