Seen this done before...liked it alot. Modeled after the comic version - but I wanted one that could drop a tank into combat.

Dino Valley chopper
DTC Hiss Tank

I added tomahawk missiles and a chin gun (chap mei).

The Tank was modded to fit under the heli - basically just removed the turret. I then drilled out holes on the sides of the tank for the missile launchers from the turret.

Tank fits and the heli lifts it from the ground...as seen with my son holding the heli:

The tank seats more vipers this way also:

Thanks for the feedback fellas!!

I may add more to this yet....a lad on JC gave me some tips for wheel covers using deodorant lids...and I got a pic from the comic at HT, when I strip down a Night Spectre I'll be adding the teeth decals to the front of the heli.

You really have to see this thing in person to appreciate the utter craptasticness of it. It looks like he painted it with nail polish and crayons when you see it in person. He's just really good with lighting and set up. All of his customs are like this. Complete and utter crap, take my word for it. :shifty



I'll take if off your hands and fix it if you want.:drinkin

Strong words from someone who left one of his customs in my shop. :shifty
You left beer here also...which I passed through my liver not too long after you left.
I have been eyeballing that custom of yours...and I am pretty sure if I dremel off what I need for my custom...you will be happy with the results. :shifty
