    Hi all
    Here is my take on Rotorstorm. I used the tomahawk deluxe mold to start with and painted him up with Tamiya paints (stock and ones I mixed) by brushs. He is about 95% done. I have to touch him up and am going to change out his head with a commission one once I get it. I will update this thread once he is done. Thanks for looking and CC are welcome.

    Thank you. The mold is used for the GDO Springer, but the one I used was a Tomahawk. See pick below.

    Very nice. Love that blue and silver. I'll use yours as a reference whenever I get off my butt and start on mine.

    i did pretty much the same thing, except I used paint markers, so it turrned out a much lighter. I also kept all of the rotors and I lost a missile. Looks great, man :)

    Thanks my friend


    Thanks :) 

    Thank you

    Thanks, the feet do kinda suck, but for a chopper they work. I was thinking about changing them down the road.

    Thanks man, Did the paint markers cover up the black well? I had to do several light coats of paint to cover the base black color.

    Nice job. Feet ultimately kill any Rotorstorm paint scheme for me though. With any luck Head Robots will consider just releasing the feet from their upgrade set on their own at some point.
