    Here are another set of quick repaints I have done in the past couple weeks. The only major modifications done on them were the new noggins that I made, other than that fairly simple (Roadbuster is really just the Universe version with some paint details added!) I also molded and cast a "roadbuster" rifle from an old Dorvack toy, that was just the right size! These 2 will be up on e-bay together Sunday as well! Thanks for looking!

    These look awesome bro! I especially love the blue and yellow on Whirl...tell us the truth...how big of a PITA was it to accomodate the new head, and paint those chopper blades such a nice smooth rich yellow?

    Good stuff!!!

    Thanks! Yeah it was tricky building a head that would fit. I had to make the antennae foldable, so it could be tucked down to fit in the cockpit.

    Oooh! Which one?

    The Roadbuster head was one that I had made a while back specifically for this mold. It was a scratchbuild. Thanks man!

    Good job man! Your Whirl is very much like mine! What head did you use? I just used all of the parts from within Tomahawk...so i cut his head in half, took the little nose sensor thing off, modded it and glued the halves together...and used part of legends Sandstorm's gun as the antenna...

    Are you casting the whirl head? If so, how much would you charge for one?
