    There have been tons of great versions of this & this was Massively inspired by MissingSea's incredible version

    Straight respray of HFTD Tomahawk with the visor from the original used on Classics Hounds head.

    Looks great, I wish I could get finishes on paintwork like that. Guess it's time to price up a decent airbrush.

    How did you do the visor? I know you say it's from the original but that was solid lightpiping correct?

    Very smooth work as always Rich, your spray work looks factory applied, puts mine to shame. I'm curious on how you managed to change the colour of the canopy and the visor. Is the yellow colouring of Tomahawk just a clear coat (I had my suspicions that it might be when I did my version)?

    The Hound head also works much better than I thought it would do, especially with the visor. (RS the visor is just a piece of translucent plastic that is stuck onto the Tomahawk head, there's a nicely sculpted face under there :)  )

    Looks great as always, love the head. Also, as always, your sig makes me want to pour paint thinner in my eyes.

    Wow, that's so beautiful. Got to be some of the best paintwork I've ever seen. It looks like unpainted plastic molded in those colors.

    Thanks a lot guys:thumbs2: 
    He's now on [EBAY]150825388971[/EBAY]


    I kind of have a bit of a Turbomasters/Predators fetish so i'd say definately :) 

    It's the Visor from Tomohawk,you just have to be carefull taking it off,it's glued in each corner.
    No Airbrushing just straight spray cans :) 

    Get out of town dude your versions was an exceptional paint job :) 
    On the canopy/Visor It's Tamiya clear red sprayed straight over the yellow.
