IG Valkyrie with a Hind Helicopter nose

Post by dcrabb » Wed Jun 27, 2012 10:44 pm

I recently posted the conversion I did putting a Valkyrie nose on a 1/48 scale Hind Helicopter fuselage. You can see the photos here:

Well I just finished its evil negative twin a Hind nose on a Valkyrie body. This one is not as impressive. The Valk nose on a Hind is more attack helicoptery while the Hind nose on a Valk is more transporty. What do you think?

they are pretty sweet conversions man

the hind nose one looks like it will just hover there for a few moments strafing the enemy and then zooming off again..
the chopper one looks like it would speed in hover whilst the guys jump out

Very nice conversions. I love the helicopter nose on the Valkyrie.

Thanks for the input guys. If I can find another Hind kit for cheap, I may be tempted to do another of these conversions but I might have a hard time convincing my beautiful wife that I truly do need 7 Valks/dettas.

I gotta say, the paint helps pull the models together. The color choice and the round cockpit remind me of the Terran republic's mosquito in planetside 2.

I'm sorry, but we have rules about necroying threads that are older than 1 month. In cases when we're talking about a painting, terrain or conversion thread, the OP can revive it at any time, but not other people. The last reply on this thread was in 2012, so look at the date of the last post before posting something else. Thank for your future collaboration.

P.S. : I agree with you that it's a very nice project though. ;)
