    Hi guys!! This is the first custom I post here on tfw2005, so I hope you will enjoy it!! I know, this recipe has been made quite a lot since Tomahawk release, but I wanted to take my own personal interpretation of the wrecker!! Painted with a mixture of white and ice blue from citadel for the whole body, enchanted blue on the head and at the elbows, mixture of black and white for the gray parts, black on the missile launchers, on the claws and on the axis of the rotor, yellow on the main and on the secondary rotor, with some accents of red on the missiles, and here and here. Whirl Claws personal courtesy of Fakebusker83 (Hi dude, and thanks!! :D ) through my costant encouragement:

    Assault Helicopter mode:

    As you can see, the claws can completely be stored onto the wings, miming 2 underwing missiles;


    Robot mode:

    In robot mode, the claws also provide Whirl of two more 3mm bars to clip onto 3mm weapons!!! :D 


    Ultra Magnus got pawned :p

    Awesome work! I'm hoping to try a take on this same recipe soon myself....out of curiosity, what sort of mods did you do to the Iron Man2 Drone head? I don't remember those designs having a mono-eye....
