I'm almost positive of this, but since I'll be playing at GW 99% of the time I want it to be dead on,
If I used a monstrous creature model Besides Hive Tyrant (Old one eye, Fex, or Red terror)
and modeled it appropiately (Extended Carapace and such) is it legal to use as my tyrant?
Im pretty sure you can, so long as its a citadel model.

Well you know if people don't argue about it then it is fine. As long as noone complains and really if it looks enough like a Hive Tyrant it won't really matter. It would probably be easier to start with a Hive Tyrant or to use parts of a HIve Tyrant but I don't think anyone will complain as long as you don't switch what your model is between games.
There is a sweet picture of a TRT someone converted into a flying Hive Tyrant. Its somewhere on the www, but I can never find it when I look for it.
So long as everything is modeled correctly, and it looks like it COULD be a Tyrant, then I don't see why there would be any problems. Its not like you'll be using the rules for Old One Eye and giving him Synapse and a Venom Cannon.
the Hive Tyrant with wings is on the Imperial forge web site. You can get to it through Games Workshop.
Here's the page with the Tyrant made out of a Red Terror, and a couple of other conversions: MudiPaws Tyranid Hive Fleet. Ravisher Tyrant is the name of the creature.
