    I always liked Flying Wings as aircraft, and when I saw this one
    Northrop Nuclear-Powered Flying Wing
    I said hey, this might be fun as a Decepticon.
    Originally and ideally, I would have liked him to be a Voyager sized fig, but I had 2 snags: First, no spare figures, and secondly, I'm wassen't too sure how to go about it...lol. So instead of a voyager-sized warrior, I came up with pint-sized minicon pest.
    Anyway, I did this little guy, mainly to satisfy my own wants, and at the same time, kinda become a proof of concept.

    I call him Windhammer:

    History:
    Crashing on Earth during the 1950's near what would become Edward's Airforce base, the decepticon Windhammer was badly damaged and went into stasis lock. While in S-lock, his subroutines kicked in and launched a small probe that happened upon a concept design for a Nuclear-Powered Flying Wing bomber... He was reformatted. When he was fully online, Windhammer found himself rather annoyed, as he once was a fast and manuverable strike fighter, he was now a much slower and unmanuverable bomber... Worst still he was leaking radiation from his nuclear core. After much brooding, Windhammer decided to become the worse thing ever to happen on this planet. He now uses his plight and rage as fuel for his violence, and purposefully seeks out large human populations to release his radioactive waste upon... Infact, Windhammer will blatantly disobey orders, if it meant that he could destroy another human. This has lead to his unpopularity among the ranks. It is said that Megatron only keeps him around because he shares his disregard for biological life.

    Stats:
    (First set of numbers is his cybertronian mode, or pre Earth, the second set is his Earth reformatting)
    Strength-5/6
    Speed-9/6
    Intelligence-6/5
    Endurance-6/9
    Skill-7/5
    Fireblast-6/9
    Rank-6/3

    Windhammer, sweet name. Alt mode I don't know it looks incomplete because missing a wing I guess from the bio he can't flight good..damn that sucks even for a Decepticon.

    Thanks guys, I really apreciate the feed back :) 
    I'll see if I get around to doing more customs... As i said I really had a much more in mind for the character, but I'm really happy how this came out. Maybe i will commission someone for the Vger-sized version

    -Ezilla82: the aircraft is asymmetrical in design where the cockpid is off to the far side of the wing(this was done a s a real life solution to protect pilots from the nuclear core's radiation that would be powering the aircraft), so you might be a bit confused check this link: Northrop Nuclear-Powered Flying Wing
    It has some pics of Jack Northrop's original design :) 

    In general I am a huge aircraft buff, and I love the more obscure designs and prototypes, so yeah, if I do more aircraft designs, you can be sure they will be influenced by those.

    Thanks again :)

    I've looked at the link and its interesting design so that cockpit kinda looks like a missile if thats correct if not then its cool. I do like the old stuff you did the ones I enjoyed are the Transorganic Galvatron and the Transmutation Sparkripper those are very creative. So keep it up. You know it just dawned on me that how they put the cockpit to one side and kinda gives off that Millenium Falcon vibe to it.

    If Beast Wars was like your Sparkripper and Galvatron I would be a beasties fan. Excellent work. Olds
