i was thinking about converting my vendettas/valkyries to look like Chinook helicopters. Basically removing the wings, putting twin blades on the top of them and gluing the weapons onto the side to complete the gunship effect.
i basically wanted to see what u guys thought of this idea

I say go for it. At least you won't have those giant wings in your way.

I've been thinking that it would be cool to convert one up like the NERV vtols from Neon Genesis Evangellion.

Here's a pic:

I'm not too sure about those killzone landing craft, I think the IG care enough about their troopers to at least give them a windscreen.

personally I really like the look of the Orca's from the old Command and Conquer series

edit: So I was doing some internet searching and came upon these, If your going to do a Chinook, I'm all for it , but I think that it may be too big for gaming purposes, they can hold upwards of 36 passengers, If your looking for something to take only 12 like the Valk does I'd check out Blackhawks, or even the Russian Hind helicopters, they fulfill very much the same role as the Valkyries, armed with high caliber guns and rocketpods, they also have the capability to drop a squad of infantry at their target.

maybe these can be of some inspiration
not exactly sure what kind of helicopter this is, I know the American counterpart is made by a company called Kaman though

an old american experimental plane that was used in vtol research, the X-22.

notice the windows, for the passenger compartment almost directly beneath the little wings.

I think this is the most ridiculous thing I have heard, ever.
IG are lucky that their spacecraft have windscreens.
C'mon man, the tried, tested and used to death tactic with IG is to choke the enemies guns with the bodies of your fallen.
What right minded IG general cares about his men?

Well yeah. But there's lots else to like about it. :)
Sorry but sitting through more than half of the show in one night and seeing the main character hardly change and progress really just made me hate it. I am also not a big mech fan as well. If it has to be mech it has to be Earth Federation vs. Zeon or Big O.

Shinji is definately a wuss, but you need to see Asuka in action.

Now this is an interesting idea.

How will you manage to create the tandem rotors of a CH-47 Chinook? I guess smashing two Valkyrie bodies together, end to end, may help.

You could also try gluing the wings upside down, and adding rotors to the wingtips, in making a VTOL aircraft.

I would be interested in seeing any pics of your project, and its progress.

:beer:

The helo look is a great idea but i think it would be just a bit difficult to do with a chinook type with the valkyrie, the valk just doesnt have enough body size unless you REALLY like plasticard. An esier way, i think, would be to put the tail ends together and modify the rear of the valk and make it a single rotor helo w/ tail rotor, or you could make it up like the V-22 Osprey http://www.jetfly.hu/rovatok/repules/katonai/hirek/prognozis_060222/V-22 Osprey.jpg
