Nothing at the moment. Had an idea for an Abrams, but then i got a clue and remembered i don't have the skill or patience to execute the mods i want to do.

Added pics of Wet-Suit, Modern Gung-Ho and a semi-blurry pic of a Nick Fury custom I'm working on. My camera is charging and my phone is not the best thing for figures.

Sculpted it. Well, my attempt at sculpting. It's the standard Hasbro one with proper 8-point corners on it. I still need to paint it. It's a little wonky. I can't decide if I want to attach it or not.

I still need to paint match the arms, sculpt the moose-stach up and camo up the vest. Should look pretty good. Mostly using Dusty parts, surprising.

I just won a pretty cheap POC Vamp on eBay. I want to do something with it (besides trash it...I know some of you would probably suggest that...heh).

Suggestions?

Off the work bench, as it were:





Cobra urban assault units have taken to using a Zyklon derivative in gas grenades to royally screw up the Joe team's day. Now that'd be a dio pic, replicating replicating an attack with cyanide gas.

They work well enough for this purpose.

The "Vorsicht!" label is actually cut off a print of a high voltage sign. I got a couple of radioactive labels ready, so i'll do a couple of radioactive barrels next, or maybe a biological waste barrel as i have more of those labels ready, too. Thinking a white barrel with some rust and gore.

Cobra: Not really all that careful.

My Cobra aren't a bunch of hair-brained scheme-hatching pussies.

I went ahead and sacrificed a ST for Viper conversion. Now, if only the goddamn basecoat would dry so i could finish painting the damn thing.

The lower legs turned out to need more work than one would think. People are gonna shit when they here you have to break out a dremel on a ST.

The ST lower knee joint will not line up with the Viper lower joint, so it has to be cut away. Quite a bit, in fact.


The ST lowers will go back on just fine, but i imagine they'd suffer from ARAH knee flop.

That it is. Still, i got it done, as it were.

Not sure why the Fusion is still tacky on the Viper head, but everything else is ready.

I don't know if it was faulty prep, or if this particular variant of Fusion (hammered) doesn't like the plastic the head is made of.

May have to break out the high octane alcohol and start over/use a different Fusion.

Used Fusion once, Color spotted up. Never using it again. Going back to primer and an airbrush for base coats. Side note, I wish it would stop raining so I could start/finish some projects.

I have problems with Krylon fusion on most action figures, there's always at least one part or area that remains tacky no matter how long I let it dry.

Eddie, that wall is looking great!

I decided to hang my OH-58D and my MD 500, and right now i'm working on attaching the M296 that Dropship sent me from his Kiowa to the Defender's weapons plank.
