Tell me about it. I have plans on taking pictures, but I'm afraid that once I actually finish all of it I'll be so burned out I wont bother.

Nice completed rocket launcher.
The lighting in my room sucks, so the picture doesn't do it justice. It looks pretty good. I can't wait to get my hands on the Private Frost figure to customize it and utilize a custom head sculpt I purchased. Painting the head sculpt will suck, but I am up for the challenge.

I'm kind of surprised someone out there hasn't taken one of those Marines apart and molded cast the parts so people could make customs....but it would probably be cheaper just to buy an original NECA version...at least then you don't have to worry about painting the camo pattern. What about Pvt. Hendrix....are those still out there? Seems like people weren't really buying him when he hit stores.

I have Sgt. Hendrix as my squad leader since he has stripes. Cpl. Hicks is his second in command. I will be buying the original neca of version of Pvt. Frost to customize him. So no painting came patterns unless I modify the decals on his armor. Which I might. Also the face cast I bought to swap heads with Frost's comes from a website called Plastic Curves. It has a ton of head sculpts. As for colonial marine sculpts, I've never seen them for sale anywhere.
