I spent around 4 hours total working on this. It went through several design iterations, including one where it had the same urban camouflage pattern as the Iron Maiden. All in all, I'm very satisfied with it--The only parts I don't like is how the hatch on top doesn't open and that there's no engine block.

A light scouting/support helicoptor

This one only took one hour to build. It originally started as an immortal gunship, but took on a vastly different form and color: The only things it retains are the "wings" and the vaguely insectoid cannon. I am completely satisfied with it.

I love the details on both of these, but the Hip's rotors are really bugging me. The shape and size of the rotor nacelles doesn't match the shape and size of the rotors themselves, and they look way too small to lift the entire thing on their own. Maybe use jet VTOL engines like the ones on RoC's dropship?

I really like the rotor assembly. Also the thing is, if I changed anything the entire thing would have to change.

I'm a fan of the rotor assembly as it is now as well. It was one of the things I liked most on the copter, other than that sweet insectoid cannon.

The side doors and the turret on the tank are just beautiful as well. Really nice, sleek design for both models. :studgod:

EDIT: Just noticed those rear-view mirrors on the BTR-99, if that's what those are. So clever.

The hip is cool, but the others are right in that the wings look a little off, mostly in the rotor placement.

The BTR really is the star of the show here though, that thing is efiing brilliant sire.

I moved the rotor placement. You guys were right, it looks better now(crappy pic).

Yep, that does look a hell of a lot better.

Now build two more. :studgod:
