Ork Aircraft Traktor Launch Trolley

I am continuing to work on my Ork Aircraft Traktor and having undercoated the launch trolley with a black undercoat I went to work on painting it.

I gave the plane carrying trailer/launcher a drybrush of Tin Bitz. I then gave the model a heavy drybrush of Boltgun Metal. I then added a lot of rust using Chestnut Ink mixed with some Blazing Orange to remove the gloss from the ink.

The Ork Fighter Bommer sits on this trolley.

Ork Aircraft Traktor Fuel Bowser

One of the Forgeworld models I have always liked is the Ork Aircraft Traktor and Launch Trolley. Ideal to go with my Ork Bommer.

Sadly this is now no longer available, so when stocks were running low (back in 2006) I bought one.

The model consists of the plastic Wartrakk and some resin pieces.

Having put the model together and started on the paint job, I wanted to tidy up and neaten the weathering, which seems to have worked.

You can see the full workbench feature on the Traktor.

Sadly this is now no longer available, so when stocks were running low (back in 2006) I bought one.

The model consists of the plastic Wartrakk and some resin pieces.

Having put the model together I initially gave it a white undercoat. Having re-looked at the model I decided that I wanted the dirty rusty metal look I had given some of my other Ork vehicles, so I gave the model a black undercoat. This was then initially given a drybrush of Tin Bitz.

I then gave it a drybrush of Boltgun Metal.

I also used some Blazing Orange to add rusty streaks.

Ork Aircraft Traktor and Launch Trolley

Ork Aircraft Traktor and Launch TrolleyOne of the gifts I got for a birthday was the Forgeworld Ork Aircraft Traktor and Launch Trolley.

One of the reasons I asked for it was not just because I have an Ork Fighter Bommer on the workbench but also as on the Forgeworld website it said:

Be warned, stock of this model is starting to run low!

I suspect this may be because a) no one is buying it and/or b) with the release of new Ork plastics at some point the plastic mould may be wearing out.

The model consists of the plastic Wartrakk and some resin pieces.

The resin pieces include wheels, the trailer, an arm, a fuel tank and the hook.

The Ork Aircraft Traktor is used to taxi Ork aircraft in position to launch, where it takes off discarding the launch trolley. the Aircraft Traktor also recovers landed Ork aircraft for refueling.
