Dakka Jet

Still fancying some Ork technology, i've now plumped for this kit.
I knew there'd be quite a lot of parts as you've the option of making one of three versions, each which has its own weapons, wings and cockpit configurations:



I've gone with the "Dakka" option (the light, fast fighter version) as i think it looks the best and leaves me a ton of surplus parts to go in the bits box.
The build was very simple and quick and its neat to see how some panels etc are covered up or uncovered depending on what you go for. I did think this'd be a long build though as the cockpit has to be fully painted before it can be inserted.
But what's great is the completed assembly just pops into the top when done - meaning i can leave it off until final weathering to the plane is done.
The pilot here is just Blu Tac'd into place, ditto his arms, head, and dashboard for ease of painting:






As usual with Games Workshop plastic kits, the grey, waxy plastic really doesn't sell the kit well and its only when a kit has Primer on that its starts to pop:
