    This was the first of my practice pieces for my new airbrush. he turned out pretty good, just a little bit of scrapes showing. now that I am sealing my figures by mixing the paint with future polish I should avoid most of the scrapes in my later figures.

    Rotorstorm is mostly a repaint and headswap of Tomahawk, Enjoy!

    Looks great! Where does that head come from? I need a Rotorstorm for my Wreckers collection and this guy looks perfect! Will have to do this!

    The head is from the Cyb Landmine figure, he took a bit of shaving to fit. I think the visor was from Ani Jetstorm.

    This is really cool man! Nice paint apps and it is nice that you have found a head that fits inside the cockpit on the altmode.

    I just think you should paint the visor kinda pink colour

    Well I planned to do red but I haven found any time to use the spraypaint I have. Ohio has been wet or freezing for the past 6+ months.

    I will paint the visor Red. call me old fashioned but there will be no pink on my male autobots. Maybe a femme or a decepticon.

    Haha I'm just so used of seeing this pinkish painted details on Rotorstorm customs (Mine is not exception) that I somehow did see pink on yours too.

    Ok man! RED! R-E-D! haha.

    Very nice, once the visor is the same colour as the cockpit she should be near perfect from that mould

    I have been debating cutting off two rotors from my Rotorstorm, but after seeing yours and how great it looks, i'm definitely gonna do it. Great colours too.

    Nice work on yours, I honestly thought I was the first from this mold. I also just found the clips which were missing from the pics. I thought ahead and barely glued the visor in, so it'll come out easy when I want to paint. He and Boss will be getting red treatments soon

    I approve. :thumb 

    The new head works really well for him, and paintjob's gorgeous, as ever. Nice idea actually mixing Future with the paint, instead of just topcoating with it as I do.

    Personally, I think RS is manly enough to carry off the pink (or at least a crimson), but the red works too. ;)

    It looks great, Toby! I agree with Stu, the blue really brings out the great details on this mold. Nice paint work, my friend!
