It's been ages since I posted anything but a new job, new house and new baby all in the past year have taken up all my spare time. 6th edition and the new flyers were the spark I needed to MAKE time for my hobbies again.

Anyway, there's a Giant Ork Bomma I'm wanting to build as well as 3 or 4 Dakka Jets.

As always, CC are appreciated!

Great work! The P38 wings pass very well with the bomba. I suppose it is 1/48 kit?
An idea could be to shorten a bit the rear of the main body to have more place between the reactor and the tail.
Cannot wait to see it finished.

Thanks for the feedback folks!

It's a 1/48th scale p-38 kit. You can find them on EBay for 10.00 dollars or so + shipping.

I must admit that I got caught up in the "looks" of it all and failed to realize that by converting it from dual props to dual jets that they now need to exhaust that thrust somewhere in the back..... Doh!

The Top Sekret Suppa Bomma is going to be a mash-up of three kits....

Revell 5526 Dornier Do217E-4 1/48 Scale model kit
BELL/BOEING V-22 OSPREY 1/48 scale kit
Northrop YB-49 Flying Wing 1/72 Scale kit

I have so many ideas/pictures in my head for this that I just hope it doesn't become one of the many half done projects littering my man cave.

Thank you for the answer!
I understand your problem very much!
For myself, I dream to convert one to a De Havilland Vampire, one to a French Vautour and another to a japanese Shinden Kai...
What can we do doctor?

This is a really amazing log, projectkmo. I subscribed straight away.
I'm trying to scratchbuild an Ork jet at the moment (no pics as yet), so your ideas are very inspirational and insightful.
LeMediko: your stuff is great, too.
To solve the 2 jets problem, how about: Make the air vents on the inner sides of each tailplane boom bigger, then have some pipes going from them into the regular jet nozzles on the fuselage, so that the main engine at the back then becomes the main exhaust for both engines?

Thank you all for the kind words.

I was able to get a little work done on the Top Sekret Suppa Bomma yesterday. I'm sure some folks may recognize where I'm going with this...IE what plane it reminds them of.

I took a lot of pictures so I'll try and get them sorted into an online album but for now, here are a few.

Next in line is a Dakka Jet / Dornier Do 335 (wiki link) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dornier_Do_335) mashup. Should be a fun one to make/Orkify!

Is the Big Bomma a larger version of the one they had in the movie 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'?
(I don't know if that was a real plane, or a fictitious one, though).

You nailed it! That's what I'm basing it on. The plane in the movie was designed specifically for the movie and while it was based off of several "real" planes, it was ultimately just a prop. It was built in England by an aircraft manufacturer, dismantled and shipped to Tunisia for the filming of the movie.

I've always loved that plane so I hope I can do it some justice though mine will be Ork-ified. I'm considering creating a display board with it and an Ork version of the scene from the movie. Kromlech makes some cool Afrika Korps Ork heads that I could use.

Sekret Suppa Bomma Update

Quick update to show I've not abandoned yet another project ;)


Next to a Dakka Jet.

Salvaged landing gear bits from some old GI-Joe toy. Note that there's no tires/wheels yet and that those are just the rims the bit came with.

Trying to hold one of the engines in place while I snap a picture. It's big an unwieldy so it's hard to get good pics until I get a bit more of it glued down.

Sorry for the long delay in updates folks.

I pinned (coat hanger) and mounted the two main landing gears which will just remain in a down position even in flight. Heck, they're Orks, they don't need no stinkin retractable landing gear anyway.

The Meks mounted the engine nacelles only to discover that their prop blades are too long for the ground clearance given by the landing gears.

New cockpit looted from a Space Marine Stormtalon.

looks great, though i don't think the storm talon cockpit really works with the aesthetic of the rest of the model
