Mr. T's prediction for Cobra...pain!
I am huge Mr. T fan, so I made my own.
I think you guys have seen my Sigma 6 version of the A-Team.
Here is my recipe:
I used Bazooka for the body with Roadblock's arms.
For the sneakers I sanded down his boots and used Magic Sculpt.
The jewelery is also Magic Sculpt.
The head is an original sculpt. I think it's one of my best sculpts so far!
For the belt and vest I used Sculpey Super Flex, this was tricky.
It's a version of Sculpey that once baked becomes flexible.
I had to make "base body" for the vest and belt to be sculpted on and baked.
I failed many times, I re-sculpted the vest at least four times.
The clay is extremely soft making it extremely hard to sculpt with, especially detail.
Plus if you under baked the clay it cracks, if you over bake it it bubbles.
See it here:
For the paint I went with a very recognizable version of Mr. T.
The pattern on the vest was the hardest part.
P.S. His vehicle is almost done, think the A-Team van meets a Hummer.

wow I have to say I wasn't expecting to be blown away but it's amazing...that is except for his lower legs they look really beefy.
Other than that I'd have to say it's great.
8/10 in that area

Here is a close up of the head.
I will not be selling it, this one's for me.
I noticed that about his legs as well, he tucked his pants in his socks.
And then he wore several socks?...Whatever, I am not arguing with Mr. T.
