Hi there! I made a Doom Diver out of balsa wood, goblin wolf rider and a bit of grey stuff. Here's how it happened... shortly as possible!
First I used a five cent coin to draw lines on balsa, for four wheels.
I Cutted ,with my trusty carpet knife, near the pencil line, leaving just a little of the line showing on the wheel. Then I sanded the line off with sanding paper, leaving a nice round shape to the wheel.
I made some cuts to the wheels, to make them look like they were made out of planks.
Then I glued smaller pieces of balsa, to make them look more wheel-like. I also made little spots with glue, for nail effect.
Here's the frame...
Wheels glued to the frame, and vertical piece to the front.
I cutted some more balsa, and shaped the edges to look like weathered planks.
I glued the planks to the frame... and then I made the rocket... Sorry about not having pics of making it! But I hope you get the principal idea from the picture. For the rocket, I made some more planks and glued them around a wooden pin. I cutted the edges of the planks on a right angle first, like making a barrel actually :) Then I glued on the wings.
Here's the Wolf Rider, riding it. I made the rope out of iron wire, and glued the rider on the rocket. I added the "flyer goggles" out of Space Marine Scout stuff... and I realized, that I also need a base for this "rocketeer", for the FB game rules, so I made one, and covered it with planks also.
I gave the Wolf Rider some Grey Stuff treatment. I made a hood and cape, to give the figure some movement, wind under the wings, and crazyness...
From another angle...
I used Army Painters "Leather Brown" for primer...
We'll see how the paintig goes from here. I have to add some Orc stuff to the platform, like shields, and skulls, and shit... to make it look more GW like :D. And maybe a fuse to the rocket.
Fire in a hole!!! Bye now...
