I'm trying to raise the front chassis of an Ork Trukk to accommodate a set of 'big' Ork wheels and its just causing more difficulties. I inadvertently shortened the length of the chassis while making modelling alterations and am having to pick up the pieces. Plus I didn't follow the safety warning associated with knifes and made a deep incision [woe is me indeed].

My options tomorrow are:
1. Carry on chopping as I see fit as and when required. The so-called 'blundering approach' I most often tackle things with and has seen me through the bad times.

2. Wait and order some plasticard of the correct size and get a ruler and that sort of thing [scoff] and rebuild the chassis where I originally cut it in twain. This requires me to wait for funds but will probably result in a better model.

3. Fashion the chassis for free with bits of sprue, gs and the plasticard I already have. This requires more effort than option 1. and involves the dreaded green stuff [shudder] but is free and will enable me to carry on before being distracted by some other piece of gw shiny.

I think I have answered my own dilemma but I figured I'd ask the modelling gurus out there for a bit of advice and to collate my ideas before making a rash decision. For those interested, the Ork Trukk is for the nobs in the project logg in my sig. They're being painted over the next day or two ready to bash some heads.

I can probably provide some assistance but i would need a couple of pics first. I have built the ork trukk kit with a shortened chassis so i think i can help.

Yes, option 3 is a good choice. I got a bit peeved off as I cut into my thumb - blood everywhere (I know, hobby fail right there).

shaantitus - There's not much to show. I literally have four wheels on the rear chassis and two big uns on the front chassis.

Don't worry guys, I'll post the finished conversion together with paint job in my project log.
