Orks: Megatrakk Scrapjet
A favourite amongst Speed Freeks and grounded Flyboyz alike, Megatrakk Scrapjets provide rocket-propelled acceleration, impressive firepower and the hilarity of ramming into enemy lines at the helm of what is effectively a gigantic, thrust-driven drill. These vehicles allow former Ork pilots to revel in the dimly-remembered joy of mowing down enemies at point-blank range – a joy which, of course, often caused the Flyboy to crash in the first place. Explosions blossom amidst the enemy as rokkits and missiles collide with their targets, while Grot tail-gunners blaze away with chattering big shootas – the array of weaponry welded, bolted, riveted and lashed onto a Megatrakk Scrapjet is fearsome.
This multipart plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Megatrakk Scrapjet. Built around the fuselage of a downed Ork aircraft, the Scrapjet is pretty much a metal tube covered in things that make enemies die – a front-mounted rokkit kannon (with belt-fed rokkits!), missiles which can be modelled mid-launch, a drill attached to the front turbine with accompanying spiked rams, a twin big shoota at the front and another twin big shoota crewed by a Grot rear gunner. While the wings have been broken off in whatever terrible accident grounded the Scrapjet, it’s still covered in fins and ailerons – after all, they look cool, and that’s what being a Flyboy is all about! The pilot himself is decked out in a flight jacket, goggles and a long scarf billowing out behind him, seated in a cockpit full of instruments (which he is, of course, ignoring). The Scrapjet is propelled by a huge jet exhaust at the back, which pushes the vehicle along via the tracked wheels attached to the rear.
This kit comes as 65 components and is supplied with a Citadel 150mm Oval base.
