    so I saw JAnGoThaKing's whirl last week while searching for pics of the shapeways hands being used, and I had to make my own. Here's what I have so far. Still not sure if I want to paint the blades yellow, gold, or leave them black.

    and here's a pic of the ironman drone head modded but not painted

    I Would Go With Gold, Perhaps Shiny Would Look Nice As Well.

    That's awesome! I like the black, but the gold might look good too.

    Leave them black. To me, the yellow just didnt fit the look of a wrecker...

    That's great! Were there any major paint rubbing issues?

    I've decided to go with gold. I'm using a mix of clear yellow over gun metal and silver. JAnGoThaKing used straight up yellow and I loved the contrast, but his light blue had a worn look. I'm keeping my blue as pristine as possible, so I'm giving the other colors the worn metal look.

    cyclonus8... I'm going to spray it with dull coat and hope for the best. I really took my time washing and drying this one, then painting in thin coats. Hopefully that will be enough.

    Looks great so far...the shades of blue really match the IDW version well! How did you mod the IM2 drone head....i.e. how did you get the drone apart to use the head (and neck? or is it Tomahawk's neck?)?
