Default Looking for replacement for IG Valkyrie

I saw a picture somewhere on the net that looked like it could stand in for a Valkyrie.

If anyone has seen something like it please let me know.

That is not a bad idea. Can you post a picture of it??


I should ask GreyDeath to help out with a conversion, I know he could help.

Valkyries are so unique, I think the only replacement for a Valkyrie is a Valkyrie itself.

I'd have to agree. The valkyrie is pretty much the staple.

I do agree but the cost is too high, I think.

I found these, Let me know what you guys think, it will need some conversion but I think it might work.

That's great, it's like the basic structure. Could be good for conversions.
By adding a few hatches (sentinel and tank sprues can be invaluable) and arials you could make it look pretty close, espcially once you've added the easily recognizable IG weapons.
I would cut off the wing tips though, and then re-attach them at an angle (90 degrees looks a bit weird).
