Yep...I bought a SW's vehicle. :shifty

At first glance at it...I was gonna paint it in the original Hurricane colors...but CIAD talked me into Pythonizing it.

Not sure of the name yet...or who the pilot will be. I was leaning towards a Strato Viper or Avac...but Aegis on JC mentioned it reminded him the Night Adder, which I also see...so Wild Weasel may be piloting it. I haven't decided yet. :lol

Frack, that looks a heck of alot cooler than the Night Adder, and love how you added Rattler bombs to the bottom.

As always, great job bud! :drinkin

EDIT: I thought the paint shop was closed for the year?

Thanks fellas!! :thumbsup

SS - the paint shop is closed. I fired up the coal stove yesterday. I've had this one done for a couple weeks now...just never posted pics of it yet.

As for doing the BMF....aint no way I'm dropping the cash to paint that, plus that would be a bitch to pythonize with all those nooks and crannies on the surface. :lol

Honestly...I have thought about it...SEVERAL TIMES.

But...I still end up at the same place each time: Dropping a hundred bucks for something I'm gonna break down, repaint and modify.

Now...my advice to all of you is this: STOP BUYING THE DAMN THING!!! LET THEM WARM SHELVES AND BE DISCOUNTED DOWN TO AROUND 20 BUCKS....THEN I WILL PAINTS IT. :lol

Dude I would laugh my ass off if somebody started buying up Strawberry Shortcake things and Pythonizing them!
If for nothing else Python Pieman...Hasbro...make it happen!

Although I think that the paint job is excellent I don't like the vehicle you did it on.

Just my opinion.

You know what would be cool, a Tiger Force B Wing. That little pod where the pilot is would be perfect for the eyes and mouth.

I, too, would have loved to seen a pp Falcon. It could have been called the Millennium Python! I can understand what a pain that would be, though.

ZOMG zombie thread!

Nice work, pacman, you made it look great!


I also cut the tabs off an old Rattler shell...and with green stuff putty, attached them to the undercarriage cage - gave it a little more aresenal.

I need to do exactly that to my Skystriker custom.
