    Hey guys!
    For the last little while I have been uninspired to bash or repaint any TFs so I have found myself back to building an odd model kit here and there. This is my latest work, the Tomahawk Destroid from the Macross/Robotech series. It is produced by a Japanese company called Wave and is 1/72 scale and a really nice kit!! I picked it up from HLJ.com.

    The kit features things like a cockpit that opens, and missile launchers that flip up and a shoulder missile pod that has 6 individual doors that open and has a pretty good level of detail molded into it.

    Well on to the pics and I hope you enjoy it!!

    Sweeeeeet! I just picked up a bunch of these kits for a steal a while back. The Tomahawk was always one of my favorites, and your paint up here has done them justice!

    That is REALLY cool...I have a couple of Mad Cats, that could use a Warhammer buddy...hell toss G1 Jetfire in there as a Phoenix Hawk, and we'd have a full fledged lance going for us!

    VERY nice kit my friend...well done!

    VERY nice. I like the design better than most non animated TF movie based designs . The aesthetic is smoother an more organized.

    That says a lot considering how old the property is.

    Spheroid git. Lucky salvage to get one Timber Wolf, let alone two. :lol 

    Take it with some other classic copyright violators - A Whammy's a fast heavy, P-Hawk a jumping medium. Sounds like a skirmisher/heavy recon build to me - roll out an SHD-2H Shadow Hawk as an all-rounder and VLK-QA Valkyrie for quick shoot'n'scoot bombardment.

    I believe they were 1/100 or 1/144, they were only like 6 inches tall. They were the ARII kits.

    Here's some valkyries I did that were in 1/144 scale. I believe the destroids were in the same scale. The kits are the ARII kits, but the strike package that came with the ARII kits were way too small so I used the oversized strike package from a Bandai kit.

    Here's one of a cyclone, I can't remember what scale it was in but the finished kit is only like 3 1/2 to 4 inches tall.

    Back in the day, my group would play Robotech the RPG. Back when all you needed were some dice, paper, pencil some munchies and an imagination. :)  The good old days!!!
