Hey guys, I'm new to the Tank and this is my first try at a custom job. I really wanted a helicopter but the ROC one sucks and I don't have the money to buy an old Tomahawk so I went with the True Heroes Blackhawk from TRU for $24.99. I bought the Firefly vs Gi Joe Troopes pack for $14.99 at TRU to replace the figures in the set with and I bought the ROC Heavy Duty for $5 for the chain gun and grenade launcher so I could use them to arm the chopper. I have a lot of desert troops so I figured I would go desert motif on the chopper. Let me know what you think. It's going to be a Christmas present for my son. Hope everyone likes it.
I used Krylon Fusion Camo Brown paint and fusion black for the colors. I used stencils with an army font for the decals. I am also ordering some Tomahawk stickers from Cobrastickers.com to finish it up. The smaller details like intake and warning decals were too small to stencil. I may go in and add some lights later on, we'll see how it goes.
The chopper itself looks cool, but the joes don't fit well in the back. The cockpit and the second row of seats fit ok, since they have more headroom, but the back row doesn't allow the joes to sit inside well. But considering the lack of decent vehicles (in my opinion) from ROC I think it will do the job.
Sorry about the poor quality photos, all I had was my blackberry, my wife has our good camera and she's out of town. Enjoy.

Nice job, and welcome to the Tank. The stencils give it a cool authentic sort of look. I'm sure your son is going to love this!
