So I went back and did a little more painting and detailing on this one. I also modified the NVR rifle, and weathered the darn thing. Oh, and my standard ball-jointed wrists were added too. Almost forgot those.
As soon as I get a few more PVs, they're going under the knife. I like the idea of making an Officer PV, so that's definitely on the agenda. So until then, take a look at my final PV mods.
Boots are now black, with a "spit polished" toe and heel. A 2nd black-wash was applied, along with a few shiny details added.
You'll notice the working folding stock feature, as well as the adjustable sling. The buckle is made from styrene, and I can't tell you how much of a pain they are to make.
Ready to jump, GO-GO-GO!

Looks great! Now it's time to start customizing one of those Cobra carrier jets with the snakes head for him to jump out of! Oh, and make me one too.

I love this custom! You gotta tell me how you came up with that rifle and what you used for the sling.

Looks great, B! So is the folding stock from the FG-34 that came with it? Or did you go and fabricate a new one?
If you put a working altimeter on his wrist, then I will truly be impressed. Until then, meh. ;p
