Orc Truck kit bash from a just a chassis.

Update 10\21\2013 scroll to the bottom for the final photos of this truck.

From my last post here is my here is the base chassis. I had a front bumper, and push bar in my bitz box. I came up with tires, see my last post.
So now that I have the base, I need to find some more bitz and make a truck out of it. I had some plastic card stock fro the bed bottom.
With the bed I needed sides. Back to the bitz box. Lucky for me I have a ton of old IG tank bitz, and the first item used was a hunter killer launch box. I use one for each bed side. The I added hatch covers for the sides. I also used the hatch covers for a bed extension.
Better view of damage.

Here you can see I added a boost to the engine, and some NOS tanks. Also you can see I have some really bad welding on the bed, and sides. Lets face it, this is a total scrap job.
Now time for the front, I need to add some bitz, and damage. See the kannon behind the driver, as well as the bullet hole, and a hole corner taken out. Also added a spare tire.
Here is a side by side with a stock truck, and this one.

UPDATE!
I primed the truck and want to add the photos. As all ways click for a larger view.

Update.
Below is the truck with a complete dry brushing of metal. I am now going to paint the parts of the truck in the color of the bit, as they were on the original item. The floor of the truck is Rhino hull, and in Rhino blue. The sides will be in IG OD green.

Update 10-6-2013.
I have finished the truck and want to show some before wash, and after was photos. The was is Polyshades stain, and polyurethane, by Mixwax. I just brushed it all over the truck, and let it dry. As all was click the photo to see the larger one. I suggest you look at al of them to see the difference the was makes. The boyz (driver and gunner) are primed ready for paint next.

I have completed this model, by finishing the Driver and Gunner this weekend. Also I started another project. Here are three photos of the completed truck with crew.
Now I am working on a track, by adding bitz and breaking bitz. Will start a blog post for that one soon.
