Ishoo Ten: Orky Dropship

This ishoo we look at an item which not only works well as a piece of terrain, but could also be used as part of your army, given the right scenario; the Orky Dropship. The beauty of scratchbuilding orky vehicles like this is that the orks themselves never do a great job of building them, so any little mistakes you make just add to the character of the model!
Take it away, Grot!

*PTFE stands for Polytetraflouroethylene, or Plumber's Tape For Everything. You can buy it from any hardware shop.

Well, there you have it! For this example Grot and I used a 120mm polystyrene ball, but you can get much bigger ones, up to atleast 200mm diameter. I used one of the large ones to build this crashed Ork Dropship several years ago.
I entered it into the Starship Modeler 'Wrecks' contest of 2007; you can see details here.

Stay tuned for Ishoo Eleven in which we'll be building a 15mm castle for educational purposes (no really!), and while you are at it, vote for the next reader's choice ishoo, which will be coming up in Ishoo Twelf.
See you then Hippo fans!
